  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    So I purchased a pair of diamond doves from Petsmart months ago (first time dove owner). It was believed that they were both female. I noticed some strange behavior coming from one of them.. "she" would bow-coo (at the time we had no idea what this meant). Anyway the pair is very much bonded and...

    I'm so happy! I wish I had realized sooner, but my 2 diamond doves gave me my first succesful batch of hatchlings! They're adorable, and no bigger than a bumble bee. :) I first realized this when I saw BOTH parents sitting on the nest, instead of just the mother. I knew this was unusual, as...

I was worried yesterday since twice during incubation I found one egg out of the nest and was worried it would not develop. They...

    Last night I decided I gave them (babies and parents) enough time to settle in and what not, so I lifted up the male and found one egg that was partly hatched with a dead baby in it. I feel kinda bad for the little guy. On the one hand I did right by leaving them alone for awhile like some...

    My first two pigeons hatched some time yesterday. I dont know how long it took, or what time they were out. I just heard one of them coo'ing, and looked over and the male was walking in a circle cooing and the female came out and looked inside the next and I saw some moving. :-D I should give...

    After two previous tries, we are the proud grandparents of two ugly little babies. I don't care what people think about babies being cute...these things are tiny little featherless pink squirmy things! :eek: As some of you may recall, we have had a couple previous attempts at babies by one of...
  11. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Last Thursday I got home from a three week vacation to find some pigeons laid eggs on my balcony beneath some winter tires I have leaning against the building. They hatched later that day but since then one of the pigeons died (I buried him in the garden this evening) but the other one seems to...
  12. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    The pigeons that started a family on our balcony at the beginning of May have had a second pair of babies. They were born on June 18th and we have called them Max and Hermione. Here they are a few hours old. :o CUTE :p And here they are with Daddy Jeff.
  13. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    :)We have been anxiously watching the nest that appeared on out balcony about three weeks ago and today we found two beautiful baby pigeolettes safe and well. We've been watching the parent feeding them and attending to them. It's SO lovely.:D
