  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?

Eventually we got it out, but it was very ruffled, missing feathers and sadly doesn’t seem to be able to fly. We...

    Hello! I've managed to rescue two baby pigeons (about 3 weeks old) that were left alone out in the open with the outside temp around -5C. They were barely alive and we were scared there's no hope for them. But after doing some proper research, they quickly started getting livelier and started...

    Hello all, I found this site and thought I’d ask for some advice... I live very near to a multi-storey car-park, which on the ground floor has waist-high walls. Three days ago, I noticed a small-ish pigeon just sitting on the wall. It sort of shuffles off when you approach and will fly a few...

    Hi everyone, A few days ago a kind lady found a fledgling pigeon. He was limping and wouldn't fly. A few days passed and the pigeon suddenly could not stand or walk. I have taken him into care.

    My female pigeon started passing really large and wet droppings (can I even call them droppings at this point?) and it seems very unhealthy. Most of the droppings themselves are brown and don't necessarily seem unhealthy, there's just so much of it and it's quite wet, but a couple of them have...

  14. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I know pigeons should be in pairs to be happy but I don't want babies and I wanna know if two males or females will get along fine without any problems. If I get two females what do I do with the eggs? Will they lose trust if I take their eggs?

  16. Training and Behavior
    Hi all, I posted a couple of months ago about adopting a male pigeon for my female in the hopes they would either mate or at least be friends, as I had one female on her own that was a rescue and she was lonely. However when the female got too close he would coo and try to peck her, and if it...

I’ve tried so many methods like trying to starve him a bit so he gets the instinct to eat but I always cave...

    Hi. Today was a sad day as one of the pigeons I've recently brought has passed away - he was sitting most of the time quietly and calmly in the cage, drinking water and eating normally.
