  1. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I am feeding my 10 day old (I think) baby the Exact Handfeeding Formula. I see recommendations here to feed them defrosted peas. What is the difference between these two? And with the formula, how do I know how thick to make it? Right now I am mixing it to the consistency of ketchup. But...
  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    **Title is supposed to say hand raising. Auto-correct >_> I raise homing pigeons and somehow the pen got opened while I was gone. My adults all went out for a good fly. The reason I don't let them do this is because, predictably, one of the females never came back. I reasonably assume a hawk...
  3. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Help needed! Hi! I'm pretty new to this website and I have no idea where to post this so I posted this here, because i need help with a baby pigeon. We actually have many breeding pigeons and one pair haven't been feeding their chicks. I don't have formula on hand and have gone to all the pet...
  4. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello, this is my first post on this forum. Thanks for having me here, everyone. (' v ') The situation is that around four months ago I rescued a poorly lil baby squeaker who turned out to have PMV. He's well now with the exception that he still cannot eat and drink on his own, but he has a...
  5. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    We have been feeding two baby racing pigeons from day old chicks. They are just about four weeks old now and they are really gobbling up their formula, (Kaytee Exact hand Feeding formula). I think it is due time to mix some whole grains and grit to their diet. There is so much stuff listed in...
  6. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Want to know if this product is safe for handraising baby pigeons. It's actually a product for handraising parakeets and parrots.
  7. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Dear people, I have posted the same thing under general discussions, but now we seem to be running out of time, so I am reposting it here in hope more people will happen to read this: ...the parents still havent come back, but it seems the little fellow in the egg is alive and is attemping to...
  8. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hey guys! Thanks for reading this, I truly appreciate this! Earlier today I rescued an abandoned baby pigeon or dove which I found in my backyard! I can't tell whether it's a male or female. It has short dark brown feathers on most of it's body, except for under the wings, and that loose bit...
  9. General Discussions
    I have recently reduced formula feeding to once per day, late at night. But the problem is, the bird's crop is always empty when I do formula feeding - is there some sort of transition where the fledging no longer constantly support a full crop? My mourning dove is eating on his own, rather...
  10. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    We have a juvenile mourning dove that just threw up dry seeds. What we saw was all millet. We are currently weening it off of Kaytee's exact, and when it asked me for lunch this afternoon, I presented it with seed (parakeet/finch variety) and it gobbled down a lot. Comparing what it left with...
  11. General Discussions
    I have two 15 day old pigeons that I have been hand-feeding. But I am running out of the Kaytee hand-feeding formula and we won't be able to town for a couple days so I need an emergency formula recipe. We have pigeon grain,millet.wheat germ oil,high protien dog food etc,that could be used in a...
