    I read somewhere online that when pigeons lay 2 eggs (the typical amount), one of them is usually a boy and the other is usually a girl. Furthermore, the author claimed that the boy is usually the bigger egg that is laid first and the girl is usually the second/smaller egg. I can't actually find...

    I bought 5 frillbacks a few months ago. I'm a bit puzzled by their behaviour and I'd like some guesses/opinions on what is going on here! In the loft are 4 nest boxes with a nest-front-gated shelf each (like racers use), 2 really big open-plan shelves and 3 v-perches. In addition to the...

    Does anyone know of any reputable DNA testing so that I could find out the sex of my pigeon? I'm located in the US so the cost of shipping the kit would be a concern. Thanks!

    I am trying to figure out the gender of one of my diamond doves. I've attached the photos below. I know #1 is female and #2 is male. I am trying to figure out what gender #3 is. The eye ring on #3 looks like it could be between female or male so I am having a bit of a hard time. I want to say...

    I recently adopted an Old German Owl pigeon. The staff at the shelter referred to it as a male but I think it might be a female. Is there any way to identify what gender it is? It did have a bald patch on the back of its head which makes me think it is a female but I guess it could also be a...

    Hello! The pigeon in this image has been living in my balcony for 2 weeks. It uses to fly away for short periods during the day, but it is always coming back for food and sleep. Can you tell me something about its breed and gender? I suppose it is a female.

    I work at a petsmart and I have fallen in love with these two birds. I named them Aphrodite and Venus but I want to know if they are both females or not. Thanks!

    Normally when we go to buy the pigeon in the market the chicks are available at low price but unable to identify their gender, How many ways we can find out their genders, by touching them at the age of 1 to 1.5 months, and majority of chicks that are available, they are siblings of the same...

    I know there is no true way of telling what a pigeons gender is, however, there are a few things that suggests that the woody is a female. For example, she never fluffs up her whole neck and bows down, instead she just jumps and fluffs up the back of her neck, she doesn't do the long coo but...

    I just got two new diamond doves. These are my first birds, and so far they are lovely. I'm very curious and hoping I have a male/ female pairing. However, the lady at the store told me they were both male. One has a much thicker eye-ring than the other and is more vocal. Any help would be...

    I know it is difficult to tell their gender until they are mature. but if you observe them, sometimes you can find out. e.g. one pair of my pure white fantails are about 6 weeks old, however, they are already mimic adult birds, one of them will find a nest and coo for another, and even try to...

    I was told the v shape bone just before the tail bone of pigeon, which is called cloaca, can be used to identify the gender of bird. I first tried on my adult birds,it is true, the cock bird has very narrow cloaca while the hen has very wide one. then I tried on the young chicks, almost all of...

    I recently found a banded bird outside of my work. I contacted the AU and after many calls located the owner in California (I'm in Florida). Long story short he has over 1200 birds and was nice enough to let me keep the bird as a pet. He will be sending the pedigree soon but did not know the...

    I'm wondering if there's a way 2 tell pigeons gender by how they act? How tame they can be, whether or not they bite, can a female do male things like try 2 mate with your hand? My pigeon Cody rarely bites but u couldn't even pat my old pigeon without being bitten firmly I posted a question...

    Hi all, So my dove that I'm raising is about a month old. She hasn't started developing the coloured ring yet, or started doing the bow coo or laying eggs (obviously since she is too young) So I was wondering if it's possible to determine s/he sex? Because I've named her Dora (I just guessed...
