  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, I'm in Surrey and yesterday found a pigeon running away from a cat in my garden. I took it to wildlife rescue and they said there's nothing physically wrong with it except for a minor old wound between its wings which they put some antiseptic on. I tried to release it when I got home but...

    I keep a small flock of (now 12) white homing pigeons as pets. When I let them out to fly they only stay in the air for a 2 or 3 minutes then come back down to land. They will take off again a few times, circle the house about 4 times, then come back down again. Also they don't go very...

    I can understand why heavy breeds, or fancy breeds with extra feathering and strange shaped bodies can't fly much...... BUT..... How come some normal shaped light breeds seem to only want to fly to get from A to B, many don't even seem to want to leave the coop / loft.. and will fly straight...

    If you have some show tipplers or rollers, or any show bird, can they be flown like regular tumblers as long as they dont look ridiculous( such as big fat birds with weird feathers) and their body shape is normal? They are still called rollers or flying flights for a reason right?

I have one person telling me I need to fly my young birds right away and another guy telling me to not fly them for at least 4 weeks. They both agree not to let the Mated pair fly for...
