  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    OK, so my little dinosaurs Harmony and Cadence have mated, and I think Cadence is going to lay soon. I have the nesting box set up in their "room" (we don't call it a cage..), and they're building with dry grass and things i leave for them.. Here's the question: I'm noticing that in the morning...

    Has anyone ever had a pair of birds mate, the hen lay the eggs, then have the pair fight? A couple times they were really being aggressive, the female would be sitting then run out and attack the male, but now it's like the male is trying to drive the female to the nest...I separate them for a...
  3. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    Ok, now that I have you chuckling.... 1) when do you consider (homers) 'mated up'? Meaning, at what point do you think you have a 'loyal' pair. I have heard that some have 'mistress' while saying loyal to their hen.... (maybe this works both ways??) 2) At what point is the embryo's father...
  4. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    Ok, I have paired brand new birds -- Old birds. At what point do you decide one isn't enjoying the 'rough ride' or courtship?? Seems in this case, the hen "York" 2013 is a bit rough (maybe) to the cock 2007. Maybe he's more into Garth Brooks kinda courtship and she's more hard core and...

    So after I messed up the first clutch from being ignorant, my pigeons have laid a second clutch. Things seemed fine the first week and when both were out of the nest box I swapped 1 egg out with a wooden one and boiled it and replaced the wooden one with the boiled egg. (Since I'm new at this I...

    I have two male pigeons that, for lack of two available hens, have mated and conduct themselves as a pair. However, they still show interest in the hens and young birds. I have experienced this with hens but never males. Has anyone had a similar experience. Bill

    Hello. I live in Turkey and there are no laws against feeding wild birds or animals here. In fact, you need to feed them in order for them to survive in here since it is very hard for them to find food in where I live. We have been feeding some palm doves (Brown ones without a collar on the back...

    I have a strange problem that I want to ask advice on. I have Blondie, a healthy retired roller pigeon that does not have PMV, and I have several pigeons that are getting over PMV. I have lost Blondie's male after he got out when I opened the garden door to feed the outside pigeons. Blondie does...

    My problem first: I have a male utility king pigeon that I rescued (he just showed up one day) and he is extremely attached to me now. I decided to get a female utility king to be his mate so that it would take some aggro off of me, and give him someone to keep him company when we aren't home...
