    So it was Friday the 13th this March, we had a fantastic day at work and came home a little early on a beautiful warm and sunny day here in Denver. We took the elevator up to our modest west facing 10th floor balcony to say hello to our two favorite birds. Our big white mystery heritage...

He passed away 7 years ago, so she has been looking after them since. Just a couple of weeks ago, the chicken died a horrible death from rats! She called me to come to...

    Hi, I'm new to this forum and I would appreciate any advice given from anybody who has had any experience of diamond doves. I have kept a pair of hen doves in a cage indoors for about three years. They have always been very close. A couple of days ago, one of the doves died unexpectantly...

  6. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    I have far too many boy pigeons, would anybody like to swap for hens? Or have spare hens. I'd love Archangels, Frizzle backs, parlour rollers, tumblers or rollers. Although any ladies won't be turned away. :) I'm in Somerset uk

    Ok so I am still very new to pigeons and doves. I rescued a pigeon in August who could not fly at all and was most definitely going to get eaten by a hawk or my cat. He lives outside all the time in a coop I made for him and I try to let him fly in my barn several times per week as he can fly...
  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, we have had a pair of adult pigeons nesting on my sky dish. (UK) There only seemed to be one in the nest at a time, & we noticed a couple of weeks back that there were eggs in the nest, well we thought there was more than one. The bird we always saw was normally quite placid when we'd open...

    So, I have two pigeons who are very good flyers, and a few days ago, only one came back. At first, I thought one of them may have gotten attacked, and it's mate( well, they're about 3 months old, but they still act mating) came back alone. I thought this was the case because they hardly ever...
  10. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    Hello everybody Do we have any members in Québec/Canada? A French speaking lady living in Montreal wrote to me. She handraised a baby pigeon who bonded with her, but now as a juvenile clearly shows signs of loneliness, staring for hours in the mirror and cooing sadly. She contacted a few rescue...

    Some of you may remember Noddy's story, I am totally inexperienced with doves and pigeons, never owned any, I found Noddy about a while back and he's not the healthiest of birds, he weighs 64 grams and he should be 90-120 grams being a Senegal dove. He currently has a companion, an adolescent...
