  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I know pigeons should be in pairs to be happy but I don't want babies and I wanna know if two males or females will get along fine without any problems. If I get two females what do I do with the eggs? Will they lose trust if I take their eggs?

    ...My "Giovanni", my new pigeon, is here with me since 4 days ago, he is probably still stressed; he is 3 years old but he had an accident when he was 6 months old and he cannot fly that much, that's why he lives in a cage in my apartment.

    Hi, my pigeon just laid an egg and I don't know what I am supposed to do. I am not a bird person, this bird came to us from a bad situation, and after preventing her from being eaten by a hawk, we took her in. We are apartment dwellers and she has been indoors since november--so there is no...
