    Ok so I raised willow from an egg. I did everything while raising her. It was literally all me. I thought for sure we’d have a strong connection and I was excited for it. She’s 4 months old now and she literally has hated everyone for the last few months because of pigpen puberty. Now she’s in...

    I have a female homer (Giuseppe) and a female Komono Tumbler (Maugin) that have been living in my apartment with me for more than a year. Lately I feel like I can’t properly take care of these birds because I have started a job with hours 50+ a week. I spend a lot of time feeling bad for these...

    Hi all, I haven't posted much since I joined the forums because Cosmo (white Ringneck Dove) and I have been doing so well. I wanted to add some recent photos but Cosmo has gotten good at avoiding the paparazzi but he's is looking great. I do have a few concerns. He still doesn't like to be...

    I had gotten my 9 month old rescue a Stuffed Pigeon Plush Doll off of Amazon, as a companion to combat all day cooing, and it worked out pretty well. Here is my question though... "IF" I do eventually get a second pigeon, would he take the real bird as a mate or do I have to "kill" the plush...

    I have a male and female pigeon. The female has a deficiency and the male is about 4-5 months. They kind of were mating when I came inside the hall. When the female tries to cuddle him, he walks away and after some time he would chase her. When the female comes near him, he bites her off so...

    Hi everyone! I'm new here, and a newish pigeon owner. I acquired Fergus, a feral pigeon, at the end of June 2016. I work at a veterinary clinic where a wild bird rehab is also run, and he was brought in by a kind man who found Fergus with a broken wing (someone shot him... :mad: he also has a...

    A pair of pigeons laid their eggs in my bathroom window. The parents stopped feeding the girl early on. And yes I knew she was a girl and the other a boy. Anyways, I bottle fed her and put her back under her parents for incubation. She grew up and everyone flew away. The girl and boy continued...

    I have a female feral that I rescued as a baby who is a year and a half old. She lived indoors in a dog cage but I am hoping to build her an outdoor aviary and find a mate for her as I'm not able to spend as much time with her anymore and I fear that she is lonley. If anyone has a male pigeon...

    My birds will not mate or lay an egg. What can I do? Hi there, this is my first post. I have 2 utility king pigeons of opposite sex. I don't know the exact age but they arrived looking to be adults. I have had them for several months, and I have never seen them mate or lay an egg. I have...

    Hello, We have 2 rescue pigeons. The female has been with us for about 2 years and the male has been with us for just over a year. They have always gotten along pretty well and quickly started mating. For the past year, they have gone through a routine of mating, building a nest, laying 2...

    I have a male ringneck dove rescue (age unknown) I've had for several years. His mate passed away back in December from reproductive issues (didn't know that when I got her) Despite my best efforts, I lost her around Christmas. I have finally found a potential new mate for him, except the...

    Hi there, a few days ago our very old female dove, Lady, passed away quietly. Her mate, Biggles, is all alone now in their cage, and is silent where before he would coo at her all the time. I have noticed some dark discoloration on his head and body since her death, like his feathers are...

As some of you guys know I've got a pair of young pigeons and I've been having problems on having them get along with one another at times...I have also noticed after giving them a bath when she has either laid or is about to lay causes them to be at odds with one another. They will be all...

    my pigeons were kissing this morning and now the male just keeps softly pecking the female in the neck. What does it mean?

    I'm just showing off like the proud daddy I am! It's funny.. I fell in love with Capuchines and Jacobins, and had one literally fall into my lap! Then, looking to find him a full-time roommate, I decide that a Classic Oriental Frill would be a good addition to the house (smaller, mellow..) Lo...

    I have a male pure white ringneck dove who I adore. However, he's driving us all nuts this year with his obvious desire for a mate. Truthfully I'm a bit ignorant on mating practices with doves (I know they mate for life though) and he wasn't acting like this last year. I also do not know his...

    Is there a recommended age range for mates in ringneck doves? Or more specifically, I found someone who is willing to sell me a dove who is around 1 to 1.5 years of age, and my dove is somewhere between 6 and 9 months old. Would they make suitable mates? Is there anything I should look out for...

    Hi Everyone! Today my pet pigeon Mack went outside for the first time in about a week. I started letting him hang in the backyard whenever I would see other pigeons pecking about back there. Today there were 2 pigeons. One which looked like a parent pigeon and a baby. So Mack just...
