  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hello! I have a pair of Iranian high flyer pigeons. Every couple days, they produce giant poops that are a little concerning to me (picture attached with inch measured tape for reference).

    I rescued my pigeon 6 months ago, he was stock in the net of my window and has a scar on his head. He is very active. I was wondering why is his beak partly pink unlike other pigeons. My english is not very good and i'm sorry for that, i'm from the middle east and i would love to help my pigeon...
  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    (I hope it's the right place to post) I began reading on the internet about the issues that may arise from keeping a pigeon indoors, but I wanted to ask anyway, just to be sure? It's a wild pigeon but it seems healthy enough, aside from sneezing a few times a day. (could probably be somewhat of...

    A little bit of background; Archimedes is a rescued Utility King Pigeon (found very emaciated as a young adult, presumed to have been released at a wedding and unable to find his loft).

    Our indoor ringneck dove lives as a solo pet. He has been a steady 4.6 oz since late July (5 months now), and appears healthy and happy. I meal feed him to encourage him to eat a balanced diet, and he usually leaves a tiny bit of seed by the end of each day (his least favorite kind). We were...
  7. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I have a rescue white-winged dove, Morning Glory, with an issue I have been wondering about. It is a mobility issue: at least a month ago I noticed that when she was feeding at her seed trough, she would suddenly rear back, put her belly to the 'ground' and slap her legs in front of her. She...

    Greetings! I have a pet dove named Rooh who is now one year old that I've raised since she was a nestling. I thought she was a male, until this morning when I found... an egg :eek: Rooh is completely bonded with me; follows me everywhere, wing-twitches, nest coos, the whole bit, and I have to...

    I don't know how to protect my racing pigeons from the mosquito's, and when I go out at night I can hear them tapping. I really hope that someone knows how I can help them without making them sick. Thank you
  11. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I've been reading many different threads since I picked up Otto and Eloise, my new rescued Ringneck doves, the other day. I've ordered several books on keeping doves, been reading like crazy about them on the internet, got them fresher feed, have been singing to them (which they really like) and...
