  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I have two pairs housed together. Until recently, the males only took up one nest box each but now that everyone has paired up, one male keeps pushing out the pair from their nest and sitting on their egg. Meanwhile, his mate is sitting on a fake egg in her nest box (because she was insistent on...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I have four pigeons in my enclosure: Oliver, Betty, Esteban, and Pearl. Esteban and Oliver used to share the enclosure alone and each had a nest box they regularly used/slept in. When Betty and Pearl were introduced to be their mates, initially Esteban and Betty paired up but she began spending...

    So tl dr; I've been battling with pigeons for years because they always nest on my balcony but are also then too stupid to actually have the eggs hatch. I think one time they froze, another the eggs had been eaten by a hawk or owl or something I'd guess. I feel bad destroying a nest, but after...
  4. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Recently, the ferals that live on my balcony have started roosting, which I'm really happy about, but the problem is that they've made their nest right next to the pipe/drain that drains away rainwater, and that spot also has no protection from rain whatsoever. Additionally, it'd be really easy...
  5. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    A pair of magnificent European collared doves build a nest in a tree on my balcony around two weeks ago. They already laid two eggs and are diligently sitting on them taking turns. In about ten hours however our area will be hit by a STORM with wind gusts up to 90 km/h (56 mph). The tree is very...

    Hello, newbie here. I have an (apparently breeding) pair of pigeons sitting on two eggs for 10 days. I noticed 3 days ago the male was fluffed and the next day, shivering. According to my (internet) research I think it is coccidium(?) so ordered some items. Of course they are taking forever to...
  7. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, all. I apologize, but I made a big mistake and now don’t know what to do. I haven’t used my balcony in some time (22nd floor of high rise). But with Covid, I Am sheltering at home, and decided to use all my space. I discovered a dirty nest behind a chair in the corner, and pigeon droppings...
  8. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    So, two of my pigeons seem uninterested in sitting on their eggs (they did that last time, too, but they're young and this is their second clutch). One of my other pigeons decided that nest was a perfect place to lay her own egg despite there being a seperate nest just for her and her mate (no...

    Hello! I have 2 beautiful baby white pigeons outside my window who were born around the 15th of March at the start of our lock-down here in Seville Spain. The mother is no longer around (might be nesting again elsewhere) but the father is here many times throughout the day to feed them. He is...

    Hi. I am a new member and the handsome "guy" in the attached picture is called Mossie. Mossie is a Laughing Dove and is +/- 6 months old. He was removed from his nest by the neighbours cat when he was about 2 or 3 days old. They didn't want to put him back in the nest as they were scared the cat...

    Hi, There are a pair of pigeon babies nesting on my AC ledge. They hatched July 17th and have been flying between the different condo blocks with their Mother for about a week now. They were gone for a day and I thought they have fledged the nest so I went out and cleaned it up. To my...
  14. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi, everyone. TL;DR Two Rock Pigeons are growing a healthy squab on my window sill. I like the birds but the nest smells really bad and is dirty, as one would expect. The way the nest is set up, it is very possible for mites and all kind of unsanitary bacteria from the droppings or whatnot to...

    I'm having trouble getting the nest pads I bought with my nest bowls to stay in the bowls properly. They slide around in the bowls, so the birds don't have secure footing as they enter and exit the nest bowl. Sometimes they even slide so far to the side that the pad comes out completely. Has...

    Time-sensitive - How to protect a pigeon nest from predators? Hello all, I'll try to make this long story short. I live in the city. I found a feral pigeon nest on my balcony when I moved into my new place a few weeks ago. Soon there were two eggs, and I watched with glee as the parents took...
  19. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    About a week ago a pigeon laid eggs on my balcony. Some people will come to do fix the air conditioner in my house next week. The problem is that to fix it they will need to go to the balcony and the pigeons laid eggs on a pot which is on the side that the people will be working on. The side...
  20. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi there. I just joined this group and I'm not sure if I'm posting under the right category. I have a nest of what looks like to be 2 dead baby pigeons on my balcony. I'm not sure what happened, possibly the cold weather or the mother leaving them alone too long. The mother still comes back to...
