  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I'm sitting here at my computer and I turned to my right and saw Lilly and Maxx billing, and then she stuck her bill down his throat 3 times, he bringing up food I'm assuming. Then she bent down and he got on top of her and you know. And when he jumped of they both laughed loudly. :D

    Hello all, I have a question about mating and egg laying problems that may arise. Now I know if one bird is sick it will pass things to its mate. My question is mainly about canker but if anybody else knows other things that can come up it would be great info. Now what I have learned from...

    How often do you think mated hens are bred by other cocks in the loft? Am I correct in assuming that the only way to be absolutely positive about the parentage is to confine the pair to a breeder cage?

    Weird question does mating come before eating? This last week I have been whistling before I entered the loft and my babies have meet me at their food before I got in. Today I whistled and nobody jumped down to their dish. The young boys stayed up in their boxes cooing like crazy. I checked them...

    Good evening all. Newbie trying to learn. I was watching my pigeons and they are basically young birds. One got up into a box and made these growling sounds. I believe she was calling to a possible mate. Then she put her head down and her back end up. Then a bird came up from feeding and...

  14. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi all, I'm slowly introducing my non-releasable male pigeon Philly to a new non-releasable pigeon who we very much think is female. The new pigeon is in a kennel (a converted plastic medium dog carrier, sized 28x20.5x21.5" / 71x52x54.6cm) in the middle of Philly's territory. They seem to be...

  18. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    About 3 months back I found a pigeon. She was hopping on the ground. I have rescued alot of pigeons and set back to the wild so I ran up to her and sure enough she didn't fly away. I was looking and realized she had a severe wing injury. She stunk of infection.... I took her home and cleaned her...

    Two of my rescued pigeons, found in different locations about two months ago, are fully recovered and ready for release. I’d been planning to do release them this weekend; however, over the past week the birds suddenly became a couple, and the female has laid the first of what I assume will be...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBSVRvxkhEQ She (I was told it's a girl, so it's a girl) does this whenever she sees Tony, my whiteface cockatiel. Two weeks ago she started doing the same thing to my lovebird and four rescue cockatiels. The only difference is that she doesn't jump on them like...
