  3. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi all, my cat brought in a baby pigeon two days ago and was not hurt, but had not developed tail feathers yet so could not fly - I would say it was 20% under what a full grown adult pigeon would be.

    I used to make my own rodent mix when I raised fancy mice. I was wondering if anyone here mixes their own pigeon food? My local petstore carries a lot of different seeds as well as corn individually in bulk. I only have one bird to feed. Wondering if there are any recipes out there for good...
