  1. Loft Designs
    I make rabbit hutches. Someone contacted me and wants to know if I can make one of my rabbit hutches work for a pair of pigeons. I know nothing about pigeons so I'm here to see what changes would be needed to my basic design. Here are photos of the basic hutch...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Now that my dove couple's babies are nearing adulthood their cage is starting to become a little crowded and we currently don't have the money to build an aviary but if we ever let them outside i don't know if they would return or if it would just be death sentence for the poor animals as I've...
  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello again! I've had my Indian fantail for about a month now, and he still doesn't seem to quite like me. I was considering getting another bird to offer as a companion for him since he doesn't seem to be warming up to me as well as I had hoped he would. I half wonder if he had a bad...

    I will try to make a longer story short. We were in and around our pool this summer and a pigeon flew onto our diving board right by a lot of activity and acted as if it was going to try to nose dive into the pool. Being stunned by this behavior I was afraid the bird was delirious and that it...
  5. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello ! Im new here, and I registered in order to ask about my choice for pigeon housing. Im hoping to buy one male (Or so I think?) satinette pigeon. Im not sure if they're on the larger scale but, Im only wanting one to give me company as I study from home and well, have something to take care...
  6. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I just recently got a female diamond dove and at the moment I am housing her with my male rock pigeon. The pigeon is definitely much bigger and he is a bit aggressive. The dove has her flight wings and can get away from him but when she tries to fight back, to no avail, she gets pecked by the...

  8. Wood Pigeons & Others Not Native To North America
    Hi all, I've lurked before but not posted until now. Had an injured woodie living in our enclosed garden for a while; her flight feathers were broken on one wing but she seemed to be recovering well. We were loathe to take her in as she was doing so well and we didn't want to shock her. Last...

  10. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I've found two baby pigeons 6 days ago, their parents died and I've been feeding them since then. Now both are about 20 days old. Previously I used to keep them in same place as their nest, I just used a large card board cartoon. The place where nest was pretty safe and cool ( even in scorching...
  11. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Picked him up from the driveway on Thu AM -- best I can think is he just fledged and found out he couldn't fly with just one wing. Not a recent injury, perhaps a developmental defect? Now that I've discovered any rescue would just euthanise him as unreleasable, we've decided to keep him. As...
  12. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Last week I took in 2 baby wood pigeons after their nest fell out of the tree. Unfortunately the tree was too high and the nest too damaged to put them back. Since having them here they have lived in a large banana box with the lid permanently off. The problem is one of them is starting to flap...
  13. Training and Behavior
    I'm really glad I got into the hobby and incredibly thankful to find this forum. I've read lots of great threads and gotten great responses and can't thank you all enough. Breakdown: I got 2 Gaditanos on Christmas day, picked up 6 more homers last week (one has a funny frill on his head that...

    Hello. I'm new to this website as a member (though I've been a lurker for a few months), so please bear with me. I have a white homing pigeon named Cher. Friendly, loving, playful, etc. He's beautiful, and he's my buddy. I do everything I should. Take him out every day, change his food and...

  16. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    We've had a pigeon hanging around our house for almost a month. I've been feeding her dove/pigeon food and cracked corn, and have been giving her fresh water everyday. She does have a tag (registered to someone from a different state), but I have yet to contact the owner- I was told by a friend...
  17. Non Pigeon/Dove Pet Bird Discussions
    I tried posting this on the pet pigeons and doves forum, but didn't get any replies, so I thought that maybe it would be more appropriate to try it here: Hi, I recently rescued and have been rehabbing a magpie (who I named 'Maggie') who I found with a broken wing. Maggie has been healing her...
  18. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi, I recently rescued and have been rehabbing a magpie (who I named 'Maggie') who I found with a broken wing. Maggie has been healing her wing, and we were hoping that it might heal sufficiently well that she would be releasable. But when my vet last inspected her wing it looks like she isn't...

  20. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi all, I have become the unintentional parent of a baby pigeon (not sure what type) which my cats had cornered in my garden. I know you are meant to try to put them back by their nest etc. but I didn't do this since a) I had no idea where the pigeon came from and b) my cats (and neighbours...
