    I will be getting my first pigeons tomorrow. I have a coworker who is very into racing pigeons, and I confess to long being curious about them, but have never had an opportunity to own a pigeon to this point. It seems an associate of my co-worker had 7 West of England Tumblers that they no...

    So, I'm a very new bird owner. The dove appeared on my doorstep about 2 1/2 months ago, clearly domestic, very well behaved. Since I've had him, I have had no reason to think he was sick (because of inexperience), but today I was looking up some toys I could get him and I came across a list of...

(So appologies if this is in the wrong place or out of context) Some background: Pippa is a Laughing Dove Fledgling, she's friendly and affectionate and makes such cute "peep" sounds.

    Hello! I'm looking to add a new feathery-friend to my small family, but I'm unsure if my lifestyle would be fit for a little pigeon. I am interested in a male fantail dove, and I have a ton of questions. I want to make absolutely sure a fantail is right for me, and I am right for a fantail. I do...

    ...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. He will have a new cage (now he has a kind of rabbits'...

    Hey PT, :D I'm new to the forum (It's great!) and was wondering if there's any other NZ or Canterbury Keepers here (I've met a few already :).) Because I'm new to pigeon keeping (see other thread) I don't know much about pigeon clubs and supplies in the area so It'd be awesome if you guys could...

    I found a pigeon July this year and raised him by hand, he's now all grown up (4-5 months old) and decided that I'm his mate. He's called Frida, after Frida Kahlo, as I was convinced he was a she :) Frida now lives in the house with us and goes out when we're working outside in the garden...

    Hey, I'm new to having doves and got a couple of ringnecks a week ago Friday. I haven't names them yet. They live in my room in a sizable rabbit cage right now, but have gotten a lot of free time to fly around. They just figured out that it is ME in the corner of the room they never go to...
