    I have nice pair that's been up for sale, and I have a family interested in buying quite a few of my birds, including that pair. Unfortunately that pair just hatched their first child 3 days ago, and I'm not sure what to do. Could I give the baby to a different pigeon pair to raise, instead? Is...

    I wanted to know if anyone has used her ring that doves to foster a baby Pigeon. I wasn't sure if it would work. I have a pigeon laying eggs but not sitting on her eggs. I also have a very attentive ring neck constantly laying. Just curious if the mommy and daddy doves could feed the pigeon baby...

    I need to foster an egg that is about 16 days into incubation. The only place I can put it is under a pair that has been sitting on fake eggs for about 13-14 days. Will this work? Do the foster pair have the crop milk built up even though it is a few days early? Thanks!

    I recently moved one of my breeding pairs into a new coop and unfortunately they seemed to have gotten stressed out, as my female laid two eggs but refused to sit on them. One of the eggs rolled off her ledge and cracked the day it was laid. The second egg I kept an eye on and approximately 4...

    I need little advice. Pair of king laid eggs on the floor on top of a bag. It has been two weeks or could be more. Normally it takes 17 days to hatch from the last eggs so total 19 days. A pair of fantail used to stand next to the pair of king but it had no eggs. Today I saw the was in different...

    So my female pigeon (the one that was attacked by the hawk) often gets really broody. But since she is kept indoors with me as a pet, she has bonded to me, and has laid eggs for me but they are never fertile. I also have a pair or ringneck doves that keep breeding but they always abandon the...

    I know this topic has been thrown around before, but just curious as to how you all mark a foster baby right after hatching?

    Here is the hen of a homer pair on her English Owl "foster" young. This pair of homers have fostered several English Owl young this season. Since the English Owls require pumpers its always critical to time everything just right. I have also used rollers but they stop feeding the young EO too...

First egg was due today and, sure enough, we've got a baby! What I didn't count on is how absolutely mesmerized Dad is by "his" new baby! I just...

    Hello- While introducing folks to MickaCoo's pigeons and doves at the Humane Society of Silicaon Valley Adoption Fair this weekend, we were asked to take in an injured racing pigeon that had arrived the night before. He's a 2010 hatch that appears to have a head injury. He's improving and...

    There is a sick king pigeon at SFACC- lethargic, weak, thin- and I have absolutely NO place for the poor thing. Is there anyone who could help by short-term fostering? I can help you to get set up (it's easy) and will have a spot for him within the next two weeks but I've got no place right...

    Hi, I am brand new here. My family (my husband, myself and our two young daughters) have two white ringneck doves. We believe some local church is releasing ringneck doves on easter (instead of white homing pigeons; I'm sure I don't have to explain in a pigeon forum how big of a mistake that...

    I can offer injured collared doves a good home! I already have 2 collared doves in my care (Flappy and Octo). One from London the other from Hampshire. They were both found as abandonned sickly youngsters and hand reared. Unfortunately, as young adults they are too tame to be released back...

    One of my pair laid eggs but the hen doesn't want to incubate them even when the second egg was laid, maybe because she still have a 3 week old youngster, but the cock was incubating the eggs.. So I decided to foster the eggs with my foster pair which I believe the foster hen will be laying egg...
