    Hi I'm wondering if its normal for our resident 5 adults+2 babies pigeons to roost all day where they live? Why would 1 pigeon sleep outside and all others sleep inside roof? Would they hang around ALL DAY in the HOPES of getting peanut crumbs? I'm trying to understand them to better find a...

    I have three male homing pigeons I use for dog training. In general they vanish for the day, and return in the afternoon to be fed. Two pigeons, from who knows where have joined mine over the last few days. They are all hanging around their cage, without leaving or flying far. The last...

    I recently acquired some pouters. They are a big larger than my other birds. Does anyone use a different style feeder or waterer for these birds, as they seem to have a difficult time eating through the doweled feeders that I have.

    I found this on the local news website: http://www.property24.com/articles/how-to-get-rid-of-pigeons/15212 I'm stunned. How can this be? The author clearly knows absolutely nothing about pigeons, and puts them in danger with her ludicrous assumptions and suggestions. Does one do something...

    I have 3 pairs of Racing Homers. They were given to me by a club member in order to get me started in the hobby. They have been in 3 cages for 10 days. Yesterday I added a dog bowl to each cage for nesting, along with some coconut husk material. Some of the advice I'm getting I don't understand...

    I am adopting pigeons that need a home by Thursday and building a loft asap. Should I provide nesting bowls for comfort, or only if I want them to breed? The lab giving them to me will not know if they are male or female. I do NOT want baby pigeons. Thanks

    I'm a newbie, getting my first pigeons. I have a 10X10 dog kennel that I have covered the top with wire. I want to build a standing coop in it, and have the pen available as an aviary. I plan to get homers, and want to be able to have them recall, so I have made provision for landing and...

    I am building a pen for my pheasants (i only have 5 ringnecks) and was wondering if I could also put some pigeons in there also? Will the pheasants kill the pigeons or mess with the pigeons's nests? The pen will be 10x10 and 6 feet high.

    Hello everyone, My friend and I are doing a project on pigeons and there was some information we have been unable to find online. I'm hoping we can find our answer here. We're looking for information on pigeons and their territories; specifically, how do they define a certain territory as...

    Hi, I have a problem with some stray cats, they keep getting into my garden and climbing certain trees the doves make nests in. I've already rescued a baby dove who had her wing mauled from (I'm assuming) a cat attack. Is there any way I can cat proof these trees so cats won't climb them? I...

    Hi guys. I've kept pigeons for 6 years now and have never used bowls. I was wondering if a dog food bowl/water bowl would be a good bowl or them to nest in. And also what is some good nesting material? I usually just save their feathers and they use those for nests. Or i keep them on open loft...

    A common place for pigeons down here to make their home is ficuses, they're everywhere, and some people dont tend to them, so they grow massive and with thick branches and lots of leaves, make the perfect home for a pigeon in need of protection from the elements and the hungry, however as of...

    A pair of pigeons were nesting on the first floor fire escape of the lightwell in the building next to mine. This overlooks my building's driveway - I walk down it whenever I want to get to my car in the carport. I would hear the squeaking babies when I walked by...I don't live on that side of...
