  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, new here, finding a baby dove today made me stumble across this blog in search of answers. I found what I think is a eurasian collared dove or a ringed dove? No quite sure. It was on the floor shivering when I was walking my dog so I took it in. Wanted help with a couple things... First...

    Hi, I found a squeaker out of nest early about four weeks ago, she was doing well, learned to fly, eating well, etc., and I thought she would be ready for release. But then a or two day ago, she became lethargic, and yesterday or day before stopped eating. Someone suggested it might be high lead...
  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I am looking for advice on getting rid of pigeon lice for good. Here's the story - Iggy showed up last September on my doorstep hungry and thirsty and wanting to come in. No tags, but obviously a pet. Exactly two weeks after he arrived (we had him in quarantine in the garage) he developed...
  4. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi, I am new to this forum and new to this situation I am having. One and half month ago pigeons made nest on my balcony under the plastic stool. Female laid two eggs and after few days eggs hatched. Baby pigeon grew day by day. I put the webcam under the stool to monitor. After about 20 day I...

    This question isn't about mites on our pigeons, but potential for mites in a robin's nest. Last spring, a robin decided to build a nest on a ceiling fan at our covered patio. We set up a surveillance camera and enjoyed seeing 2 broods of chicks raised. We noticed after the second brood left the...

  7. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Here is the scoop. A pair of pigeons have nested on my balcony and are sitting on eggs that I think are due to hatch in about a week or so. They also have two older "kids" that roost here as well. What can I say, I am a sucker for wildlife. Except that I am quite certain the little buggers...

    This bird settled in my back yard last spring and made it a habit to show up for food really early in the morning before the other robins. She had one leg that was less infected and was able to perch and stand on it somewhat. One day, she showed up even more crippled as her one working leg...

    I have a pigeon with severe pmv symptoms. For 1-2 months she layed all the day on her back. hen, for few weeks, she started to stand and walk but now the symptoms relapsed and she doesn't stand on legs anymore. Among other complications, she lost many of her head feathers, I think because of...
  10. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    My 3year old spotted a "white birdy" and when I looked I knew it was special. Too big to be a dove too small to be a chicken. She, well because I think it's a she, is dirty, skinny and has mites. I was up all night reading this site but I didn't want to post until I had the band ID info (PP 11...

    Hey guys, So as I picked up one of my birds to get him back into the loft, I discovered several lice on him! I immediately went and checked the other birds and they all had lice also. (Not many but just a few) So I went and got some of this Sevin dust stuff that is supposed to be dusted on...

    Free of mites if they interact with wild birds? Does flea spray kill them? a friend uses dog flee spray on all his show birds for the past 10 years and said he has never seen red mites? But these dog sprays don't say they are meant for mites?

  17. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    I have a winter baby feral pigeon that I rescued some time ago and is now very healthy. She is extremely affectionate to the extent I think I have jeopardized the chances she may have of returning to the wild because I have allowed her to get very close to me. It is also going to be difficult...
