    We have a 2year old female pigeon that my husband raised from a week old. Every 3 to 4 weeks she goes onto the floor of her aviary with her wings held out. She breathes rapidly and has trouble getting up onto her feet. She is interested in what's going on and pecks at her food and water. This...

He lives in a card board box in the house but we let him have the run of the house during the day. I believe he's about...

    I have a pet pigeon, named Raku, who came to me as an accident victim. She had one side of her face caved in, one eye gone, jaw broken and lower beak off to the side about 1/4 inch. She was a juvenile when I got her, but after recovery, she started to lay eggs. After the first two, I took them...

    Hi everyone, The baby pigeon that I found a few weeks ago is doing well. He's lost almost all of his baby fuzz and he's flying more and more. He's also a little bit nuts, and I was wondering if this was normal young pigeon behavior. I keep him in a cage when I'm at work, and when I get home and...

    This may seem like a really stupid question, but I was wondering if you are supposed to clip pigeons toe nails? Bacon's seem to have grown alot since I have had him and I was wondering if they were like cats or dogs where you have to clip them. Talk to you all later!!! Tara and Bacon

    A non-pigeon person on a UK news group posted the following, regarding the response of a Wood Pigeon (Columba palumbus) to his feeder, compared to other birds. It occurred to me that there seemed to be a similar kind of 'figuring out' here as Marians's other male pigeon and the 'bird behind...

    Hi everybody Today I went to the pet store just to kill some time and ended up talking to the employees, who told me about a dove they have. I've been thinking about getting a bird for quite some time, but was not even aware until today that people kept doves as pets. The girl at the pet...

    I'm getting quite a kick out of Checkers. I keep him (her?) out of the cage when I am in the house, and he sits on a stool which I have covered in newspaper and when I talk to him, I say, "let me scratch your little head" in sort of baby talk. When I scratch his head, he makes sort of a soft...

    I have discovered a home spun way of sexing my birds but I don't know if it's ever been tried before or how reliable it is. All my male pigeons will respond aggressively to being put in front of a mirror - they do their dancing and calling routines in front of a mirror when they see their...

    In field guides the Rock Dove is typically depicted as a standard gray blue bar. Apparently this was the original color/pattern before it was domesticated into various strains. Does anyone know how the blue bar pattern has survived so long in the wild? You would think that with so many color...

    Hi! Its nice to "see" you all again! My husband and I have to leave our Pij at home alone for hours at a time and we were wondering if it would be a good idea to get him a caged bird to hang out with. If so what kind would you suggest.

    I just got a pair of white utility pigeons today 4-14-01 I got them for pets and to get little ones that hopefully I can tame for pets. Have never had pigeons before so I will be trying to learn all I can about, caring for them, breeding and all. Any tips will be much appreciated.
