  1. Training and Behavior
    I had a pair of pigeons that laid two eggs, one fertile, one not. The father disappeared the day the squab hatched. That was two days ago. He has not come home. The hen is handicapped (wing broken) and she is feeding the baby all on her own. My question is, will she ever accept a new mate? I've...

    Hello guys. I bought a pair of pigeons, which i think is of both sexes. They are already together in the cage for 2 weeks. The female pigeon is a bit older, and the male is younger. On my previous post, someone answered the male looks 1.5 months old and the other is slightly older. But every...

    My white dove Pearl is 16 years old! When I was about 9, he was a Christmas gift to me (already at least a year old), and ever since then we have been inseparable. Because I was so young and my mother had previous biases against it, Pearl never had a mate or company. My mother had a dove...
  5. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    This is a true love story with a happy ending. Irie (originally Iris when I thought he was a girl) came to me a bit over a year ago in a very bad way. His leg was twisted and the bone had broken through the skin, he had no nerve response in his toes. Many months of vet appointments and physio...

    OK, after 5 days, Harmony and Cadence are officially paired. Now the question; They are starting to spend time in a basket I have on the cage. Do I need to get a nesting bowl, or is the basket OK?
  7. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I was wondering if I could get some advice please about finding a mate for my pij. I live in regional Australia, there are no pigeon rescue orgs I can find and certainly none within 2days drive. So to get a mate for Iris I will have to buy a racing bird or adopt an injured wild bird (who may not...
  8. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    So, I have quite a few questions regarding pigeons, and these question revolve around a specific circumstance. I'm getting married, and I wanted to do a dove release. But I can't afford it, and there's no one in my area who does it anyway. So. There is a pair - obviously mates - of wild pure...

  10. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    My loft is divided in two-one side for fancies and one side for homers. I wanted to put my not-so-baby frillback (born first of Feb.) and her mate (or just bff at this point) out with the fancies for some fresh air and sunshine. The cock bird is a lesser male homer who was being picked on by the...

    Ok about a week ago I walked into the loft and found my pure white homer hen (Hazel) on the ground with her eye all beat up. I picked her up and saw that she was laying on two eggs. But when I looked again one was a lot smaller that the other and both had spots were there was just a thin...
  12. Archive - Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I would like to know, does anybody has any kind of weird pairing like this? I know pigeons and doves are a bad idea, but what about different genera or species of doves? For example I was thinking about getting a mate in the future (a good amount of time from now) for my dove, so I'd like to do...

    Hi everyone! My rescued pigeon, ******, has mated himself to me and doesn't allow much petting or playing by others. He's usually chasing my other pigeon, Sleepy, as soon as she gets near me or goes to his spots. He's a total bully. :D I want him and Sleepy to mate. I don't think he knows how...

    Well... I was thinking about this, and I need somebody that knows about this stuff to help. Suppose you had a female pigeon as a pet, who is your "mate". She nests and lays eggs. Imagine you found a little squab on the street. Would it be possible to switch an egg for a squab? Would she raise...

    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...
