  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello everyone! Thank you for taking the time to read this. I am an experienced (ex) parrot owner and although some things are the same as far as care goes other things are very different. So, I need help. I recently rescued a Rock Dove a block away from our flat. On Sunday we took her to the...

    My rescued pigeon is getting stronger every day. I transferred her from a cardboard box into a borrowed rabbit hutch. She is hopping on one leg and using her opposite wing to balance. Lots of missing feathers have grown back although there is still a large damaged area on her back which is...

    So I found a pigeon yesterday (I live in a big city in Europe). I am a very experienced (ex) parrot owner so some things are similar but I have zero experience with pigeons. I did a lot of research but need guidance. I'm not sure if she was in shock when I found her but she's eating well...
  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    There is a feral pigeon that I feed occasionally. For the last week he has had a swollen eye. It started off pretty bad (he was unable to open it) but seems to have got a bit better. There is still a big lump on his head and seems to have stopped going down. He shows no signs of pain or...

    Today I found a pigeon at work (Lakehurst NJ) who was too weak to fly and almost unresponsive. It looks like it has an eye infection as well. I contacted the secretary of the club on its band and they do not have a record of the owner of that bird. I am currently waiting on a response back but...

  7. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi there! Last night I was out on my balcony when I saw a pigeon flapping wildly and descending from the sky in a spiral. At first I thought it was looking for a place to land, but then it came down hitting some leaves on a tree. A car was blocking my view from that point, so I'm not sure what...

  10. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hi there. I've had an adult wild pigeon taking refuge in my back garden for the last 3 days. I'm guessing it was attacked by a cat as the large feathers on it's left wing have been torn off. It cannot fly, but is able to flap both of it's wings. I found it when I went out to water the garden...

  12. Wood Pigeons & Others Not Native To North America
    Hi, Pigeon regularly comes to my garden to eat out of a dish of seeds and some scattered on the patio floor too. However he has a broken beak, it has been like this for months, I saw him once then couldn't find him, he didn't come back, 2 months later he is back every day trying to eat. He...
  13. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    My partner and I found this young pigeon/morning dove outside, last night. We took them in because it looked like the mother or mate was trying desperately to get to it, and did not want the second bird to get injured as well by this. We expected the one we took in to die rather quickly, but as...

  19. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi everyone, I'm posting here for the first time, and I'm located in central Vancouver Island. My husband and I were leaving a restaurant and noticed a pigeon sitting beside the sidewalk. It was dark and pouring rain, so I figured it was in distress, popped it in a kleenex box, and took it home...
