    Take the inside plastic shell of an old refrigerator (door and everything else removed). Along the bottom/front add a small (couple inch) lip of plastic from right to left and seal it so that the bottom can hold a little bit of water. Then screen the entire front (with screened door openings)...
  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello everyone ! I'm Eva, I live in Prague, and last week we realised that the mama pigeon nesting in my courtyard hadn't come back to feed her babies at all ; my husband stood by the window to spy on the nest and no bird came to see the little ones. After 12h of no parent showing up to feed...
  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves

    I found Bertie outside of my office building about a month ago. Long story short he had a 2018 band and I was able to contact the owner and he wasn't being raced at the time but somehow got lost and flew 30miles from home into Atlanta. I still have him and have decided to keep him. I took him...

    I've been reading and reading about how to keep a pigeon. I'm a stay at home mom and intend to let the bird out of the cage all day in the room I spend most of my day in. I talked to someone who said pigeons are not good indoor poets and should always have another pigeon there. I would like just...

  11. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello all! My husband and I have been waiting and scheming to get a companion bird for a long time and a pigeon seems like the perfect option for us. But, while I have some experience with parrots, I've never even met someone with a pigeon. Total beginner here! What I'd like to know is if...

    I am raising a rejected homing pigeon baby. We named him Tesla and he/she is doing great but I am left with a couple problems to solve. This baby will be a house pet and I have been looking for cage ideas. I don't mind building one as long as it isn't too very hard and it looks nice. I have...

    Hi guys, just wanted to share my photos and new ideas when setting up my new cage for my pigeons Baio and Bong Bong. They had to move with me into a one bedroom apartment, so are living in a parrot cage that is taller than wider, a set up not traditionally ideal for pigeons. Here's a link to...

    I am looking for info on lighting for indoor birds. I had been using a 13w uvb reptile bulb on mine about 12 hours per day, 1.5' from the bird (6 days so far). Then I ran into an article about how uvb bulbs can cause cataracts in birds, not to use more than 3 hours per day, and NOT to use...

    I am just sick. Yesterday I had the horrible experience of accidently stepping on my dove. He died right away. It was so awful, I just didn't see him underfoot and he was so tame he was not afraid. I couldn't sleep last night; I am haunted by the scene in my mind where he closed his eyes and...

    Hi, everybody! I'm brand-new to the board and had a few (okay, a lot of) questions about pigeon keeping. I've never kept pigeons before, although I have kept various parrots and parakeets for many years. Obviously, one cannot let a pet parrot fly freely--you'd never see it again--and little...
