  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello again, I've asked a couple questions here within the last week. I had said in a post earlier that I had rescued a wild pigeon. I finally got a good look at it today and I don't think it will be able to be released. Part of its wing is torn off and it can't fly properly. There are no...

    My girlfriend has two pigeons and I'm trying to figure out how best to handle them, make them happy, and also manage their aggressive tendencies. They are indoor birds, and they share this hutch. We have the top and bottom floors closed off from each other to keep them from fighting. Each...

    Many of you who frequent this forum have heard me mention my 'mean german owl'. He lost his mate a few months ago and has become so aggressive he has to live by himself. I tried to pair him with a female but they didnt show much interest in eachother. Today he trapped in with my other birds...

    Still fairly new to the world of pigeons, though we've come so far! We have two males in one cage (father and son) who often play "pecking order" and fight for top shelf. It is about 6'sq. x 4'high. When we tried to put another one into that same cage they all fought. We have that one in a...

    Two of my male pigeons paired even though the first was prevouosly paired with a hen, and they even laid on eggs and everything. I'm shocked and I'm so sorry for this hen he terribly misses her mate and he is now pecking her whenever she approaces him. What can I do??

    Hi all. This is my cry for help. Near the beginning on the year my father and i went to an poultry auction at Gatton. Anyway, I went there to check out a collection of Inian fantails up for grabs and came home with four fine looking birds, one hen and three cocks. Well, i popped them in the...
  8. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    I have some pairs of birds that are paired but refuse to build nests and lay, or they refuse to lay/nest in the loft and will only nest in a 4 x 6 foot cage that i have by the side of the house.... Also have some hens that refuse any advances from several different cocks. I seem to be having...
  9. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Uh...I like to think I'm reasonably attractive, but lately Maggie's been taking too much of an interest in me. She's started to bow and coo at me now. I have a feeling she's not a she but a he. WHY CAN'T I EVER GET PIGEON SEXES RIGHT?! I don't suppose female pigeons bow and coo right?

    Anyone know of any proven ways to determine a pigeon's age? We have a male red bar who is (I think) about 9 years old - one of Cynthia's first rescues - and he has 'ink blots', as we call the small black splodges on his wings, which become more numerous with each year. We have a couple of...

    I have had this pet dove for about 4/5 years now - I wont get into why I have her because its such a long story and its 2:13am at the moment and I am ready for bed :) The problem I have had for a while now is she seems to go through stages of laying eggs. This isnt the problem its what leads up...

    We are in the process of looking for a friend for Peggy Sue, our incredibly tame, flight-suit trained indoor pet pigeon. She is a standard blue bar, just like you would see hanging around downtown (but with a great personality!) A local bird rescue group has some tame King pigeons available...
  13. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    Just received my cock bird today to go along with the hen I have. I don't know if I should let him and her alone and see if they will become a pair on their own, or lock them up in a nesting box for a couple of days and see where it goes from there. I got them both to breed and raise their...

    It was suggested by several members that a thread be started dealing exclusively with caring for handicapped pigeons. This can include pigeons that are blind, amputees of either a wing or leg, crippled, etc. Hopefully, any member that has a handicapped pigeon will contribute to this thread and...

    I think we'd agree that generally, male pigeons are far more vocal than females, though there are bound to be individual exceptions. I wonder, though, if anyone has noticed whether this is also true right from squeakerhood? Anyone spotted if a squeaker who turned out to be a male squeaked (or...

    I had my pigeons seperated for a couple of days because they weren't breeding, and I got the advice to do so. One day I saw the female was cooing for the male, so I released her into his cage. She instantly went to the male. The male started cooing as well. They started pecking each other in the...

    I just got a white homing pigeon and he/she has become my indoor pet along with my Ringneck Dove and two parakeets. This pigeon is adapting very well. He/She was born in January. My question is whenever he/she is around Magnum my female Dove (named because she bow-cooed and was thought to be...

    Why aren't my pigeons breeding? Its a male and female and they were adults by the time I got them. I have had them for a couple months now and I haven't got a single egg yet!:confused: What could be the problem? Thanks

    I've put 2 wood eggs in a basket in the cage with the two boy doves in love, and now Star is taking them seriously, sitting them and carefully turning them. I think it is funny but I also feel like I've tricked him. :o He looks so happy to have eggs at last, but the other boy thinks he is...

    ok so only another week to wait and have a few more questions: if i buy an established pair how long will it take for them to become settled and lay eggs? if i buy 2 pairs from different breeders and put them in the same aviary will they fight? i've read lots of stuff on what kind of diet they...
