It took weeks of vet care for her to get over the canker. Now she's a squeaker (still peeps instead of coos) and loves to nibble on fingers and vibrate her...

    So, i have a a spotted dove rescued from my backyard when it was still very young and and raised it until she almost got all of her spots on around her neck.

    The parents are notable flyers (roller crosses) and abandoned a 3 day-old chick. I raised the chick, at first, using the home-made mac milk recipe listed on here, then switched to Kaytee Exact. I also have guineas (who are also imprinted on me), so chick starter for the recipe was no problem...

    6 mnths ago we accidentally disturbed a pigeon nest while doing a home renovation. There were 2 just hatched babies. We re-located their nest hoping the parents would come back, but they didn't. We fed them Cream of wheat for the 1st day, and thought if they survived the night we would get...

  10. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hey Pigeon Talkers, I came across a pigeon at an airsoft range about 3 weeks ago. It appeared to be without parents and the club president said it had been there for a few days by itself.
