    Hi! I'm new here and I just adopted (well bought really) a young white pigeon. I had a cage and food and had read lots of things on Google and thought about it for months, but it's been approximately one hour since I brought him home and I'm already worried sick (which might be a record). The...

    This is my first dove, and first small bird at that. Just got him last night. He's eaten but shown little interest in drinking water, which I assume he will come around about eventually. It'd reassure me to hear about how everyone else's dove acted when first brought in. Right now my concern is...

    Hey guys, it's been literal YEARS since I've posted anything here as I was out of the pigeon hobby for a bit due to simply not having time. Honestly getting back in it, though greatly desired, was not scheduled.. until I found Duds, the abandoned baby while I was on lunch break today in the work...

    Hey all, I recently adopted a reject racing pigeon that landed himself in the hospital unable to fly and was very thin. He's since fattened up and can fly, although not well. I'd like to be able to bring him outside without worrying about him flying away and getting himself into trouble again...

    I'm planning on getting a pair of Pigeons this week as pets. I owned a conure but she would always try and bite and her bites would hurt so she scared me. But I really want a bird as a pet that I can actually handle that doesn't bite. I read that doves were great and didn't bite but I came...

    Hello, My 3 year old female ringneck dove, Calliope, has been very attached to me since I got her - and it got to the point where she would coo for me nonstop any time that I wasn't right there with her. She doesn't lay eggs very frequently, but will "present" herself to me (wings slightly...

    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...

    I guess he had an interenal problem and thats why his mother abandoned him. He had bonded with me so hard that it took a giant toll on me yesterday when i found him lying there lifeless. I cried from yesterday afternoon all the way up until this morning when my bf, who i live with, bought me a...

  16. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Yesterday I saw new bird collecting twigs in my yard. It looked strange and bit smaller then feral pigeons. Then it fly up on the palm tree where other ferals nest. Obviously newcomer is preparing nest there. It is very shy and I can’t see him eating with others. I couldn’t spot mate too. After...

    Hi everyone, Need your invaluable input once again. I have a blind Senegal dove, I'd say he's about a year old now? Anyway I've been trying to make his life more "normal" by getting him a companion. I got him a canary, they are fine together but of course don't interact. I found a local pet...

    I was planning to get a friend for an adult banded pigeon we recently found and built a coop for. This is our first pigeon and I would like to get a friend for him, but I'm not sure how a new bird should be introduced. I've read that you shouldn't purchase or bring in a bird that is over 5 weeks...
