  1. Pigeons & Doves Wanted & For Sale
    Hello. I haven't logged into the forum in years. My flock died of old age and now I have two flight cages empty, as the last male passed away last month. I had them for over a decade, and some of their baby pictures are posted in this forum. I'm now looking for new pigeons, either rescues or...
  2. Pigeons & Doves Wanted & For Sale
    Hello I've been wanting to care for some pigeons of my own for a while, and there seems to be a lack of pigeons in north carolina. Places online seem to sell them for $75 and I'm not sure if that's a fair price, so if y'all can contact me that would be appreciated.

    I was given this white utility king pigeon last week. Wasn't banded or anything. I was wondering approximately how old it is? It's hard to tell exactly but it seems like pretty young (maybe a few months?)

    Hello my name is Ann! I'm wanting to own a pigeon again, but it has been awhile! So here I am trying to gain some knowledge and refreshers. Few years back I owned a lovely King Pigeon. He was so sweet and quiet. I was wondering if any of yous own one or two? I only had him as an indoor pet...

    A little bit of background; Archimedes is a rescued Utility King Pigeon (found very emaciated as a young adult, presumed to have been released at a wedding and unable to find his loft). Since his rescue in 2012 he was kept at a facility and they never released to me any veterinary care records...

  7. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hi, I recently was at the bird supply store and saw in the pigeon cage/loft a couple of pigeons sitting on the ground. The main one I was worried about originally was this small racer pigeon. He was much smaller than all the others, and had some new feathers growing in on the top of his head (I...
  8. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello, I'm currently a senior in high school and am working on my senior project, which is (hopefully) going to educate some of the local people about the joys of pigeons. It's also a great excuse to adopt some of these wonderful birds :) I've done a lot of research so far, but one thing I've...
  9. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi, I've had handfed lovebirds in the past (loved them but too moody, territorial and loud for me). Had a tame budgie in the past who was perfect. I'm thinking of getting a pigeon or dove. Apparently king pigeons make good pets? I also like how you can put a diaper on them. The noise I can...
  10. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I'm looking for advice from someone who has kept king pigeons in the past or currently. There doesn't seem to be a lot of information about keeping them as pets even though king pigeons make beautiful pets. I know all pigeons grow at their own rate and all have their own personalities. I'm...

    Only King Pigeons make great pets? I don't think so. For me, I believe any pigeon can make a great pet. I am currently raising a baby Damascene pigeon, and we are bonding really well. What made me create this thread was reading from a variety of pigeon websites that King Pigeons make better...
  12. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I found a king pigeon baby abandoned in a box in the back alley. He had no injuries and didn't seem malnurished so I assume he hadn't been there long. I've seen some advertisements for king pigeon squabs for eating so I assume this is where he came from. The trouble is, I'm concerned about his...

    My king pigeon is sick. Avian Dr was stumped. Poop was tested and showed healthy. She is still eating drinking and laying healthy eggs but looks worse everyday. We tried antibiotics didn't help. No injury no bumblefoot. Mouth clear of any signs of canker. Beak and feet and around eyes a bit...
  14. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    My King, Wind-song, is living in my bathroom - covered in paper towels ( oh boy the mess ) - We've been feeding him two types of pigeon seed from 99¢ store, but where can we get the real deal and other supplies? So, he(?) eats, drinks, coos, dances, flies, grooms, takes baths, and best of...

    Sadly, we need to find a loving home for our King Pigeon, Angie. We've had her for a little over three years and as much as we love her, due to some circumstances we need to find her a good home. If anyone is interested or knows someone here in LA that might be interested, please let me know...

    Hi! I want to start by saying that I'm super new to the pigeon world so any info is greatly appreciated. About 8 months ago our male King pigeon, Mr. White, adopted us by literally flying into my dad's arms. We were not looking to have another pet, but Mr. White insisted by staying around. We...
  17. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    A white pigeon has found a home on our roof for the last week. It leaves occasionally to go to a neighbor's house, or sit on a lamp post. It doesn't look like it's starving, but I don't know where it is finding food. I have left water for it and food on the ground, but never actually see it take...

    I have sent an application to Mickacoo pigeon rescue. If that goes through well, then I will likely have two king pigeon buddies! We travelled a few hours to go to a pigeon store in Chicago (I know, silly), but we got some advice for the cage and what not. Here is what we have so far: -Browns...

    Good Afternoon, I am hoping someone can direct me to a rescue organization or a person looking to adopt a king pigeon in Georgia... I live in Atlanta and my daughter brought home a king pigeon that our maintenace staff found in a box in the large dumpters at our complex.. Knowing she was an...

    I wish that the birds we’ve rescued could tell you themselves the difference you make in their lives. No one wants to suffer, to die for lack of a friend. In 2012, thanks to you, MickaCoo helped hundreds of pigeons and doves that otherwise had no one. Here’s the story of just one of those birds...
