    Hi, A friend of mine is moving and she was going to get rid of her bbq grill, but it turns out there's a house sparrow nest in it, with a baby who is not yet fledged. She thinks the parents are around and will return to the nest but right now it's just the baby. We're trying to figure out what...

    I could use some advice if you don't mind, guys. I've had my beloved little pidgies for about ten years now, and my parents have been very supportive and stepped up as pigeon-sitters when I moved to go to college. My parents are retiring and moving in two years though, and I'm still in grad...

    Hi, Could someone please direct me to information on transporting / shipping pigeons? On a separate thread I am trying to find new homes for my birds. I'm willing to cover at least part of the costs of transporting them to their new homes, but I know nothing about how this is typically done...

    I'm in need of advice and I've been to this site before so I know this is the best place to find it. Around 7 or 8 years I go, I rescued a young pigeon outside of a restaurant who was near death from a worm infestation. After nursing him back to health, I found he was too tame to be released...

    Can I do it? Bonnie and Claudia (my flightXhomer crosses) are sitting on a pair of roller eggs each. Unfortunately, as I had to get them out of my roller coop a few weeks ago, they are in my kitbox. Last week they had laid their eggs on the floor of the kitbox, and I swapped the eggs out with...
