    I do not race pigeons, I just like to let them out of their coop to explore the backyard, fly onto the roof, or have a trip around the neighborhood if they choose to, so I have not taken them any miles away from home. Yesterday evening I let them out and they hung around the coop, only two took...

    I have a male homing pigeon who I rehabilitated because he could not walk, had lice, and a gaping wound on his chest. I contacted the owner and he didn't want him, so for the past 3 1/2 months. Recently, we adopted another pigeon (a female) and all has been well for the past week or so. But...

    I have had pigeons for about 3 1/2 years and have let them out almost everyday and now for some reason they are hitting the telephone wires. After all these years you would think they would know where the lines are but I have had 5 different pigeons hit them and injure themselves in about 2...

    So i candled my pigeons eggs today... a little bit late as I was procrastinating for fear they'd both be duds. Theyre about 10 days out and one is very obviously fertile and the other one definitely isnt lol Is it advisable to remove the infertile egg at this time? Also, my friend (...

    So in about a week I expect my pair's eggs to hatch. I wrote about this pair in my "winter breeding/high blood pressure" post lol. In the original post I discussed being really worried about the babies getting cold and freezing to death once they get around the 10 day mark . This pair has...
