    I have/had 5 homers gone for almost 6 days now. I let them out to strech their wings and started flying in circles for about 10 minutes, one minute they were there and the next minute they were gone that was the last time I saw them. It was a combination of older and young birds and it was not...
  5. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?

My family and I recently moved to another state and I had to give my pigeon away to a friend, who accidentally let him out when she was cleaning his cage. It’s not her fault and I don’t blame her, but I’m...

  11. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi, In the summer I erected a dovecote and bought some doves to go in it. My love of birds started when a ringed bird and his mate had a baby in my redundant gutter box and I so loved watching them fly past the windows. They and their baby seem to live elsewhere and visit now and then...

    I just picked up a young pigeon that has all of her long feathers torn off one wing. I will closely examine her later this morning after she calms. I saw a red spot where the feathers attach. I hope all the bones are still there. Any ideas?
