  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi all, I think that my senior pigeon Philly is recovering from a leg injury, but I’m trying to make sure that there isn’t anything else going on. Just last month Philly lost his wife, NuNu to whom he had been married for six years. Philly seems to have been holding up well, chasing my recently...

    Hello all , I am new to the group and have a question. I have a loft almost finished and I have three breeders wanting to send me birds that I have paid for. Here is the problem I have six sections in my loft but no where to contain birds to look for health issues. They are all going to arrive...

    I'm so delighted to say I'm a new pigeon mom! Introducing classic Oriental frills Sera (approx. 5 weeks old) and Mordin (approx. 4 weeks old). I've had them about 4 hours and already Mordin knows he likes me! He has chosen to sit on my shoulder and chest, and perched for about a half hour...

    I am new to pigeons, I picked up 6 young pigeons (Never Been Flown) but full feathered, and 3 older mated pair. I have one person telling me I need to fly my young birds right away and another guy telling me to not fly them for at least 4 weeks. They both agree not to let the Mated pair fly for...
  6. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    Hello all, I just got a pair of homers for my new loft. The female looks like a regular pigeon to me, but the male is kind of lighter and different looking. I guess they're moulting right now so he may look different when done. But I was wondering if anyone could help me out with the genetics...

    A couple questions... I just got these birds about a week and a half ago, both born in the first week of May. The breeder told me what sex he believes them to be, but as I understand it, sometimes that's hard to tell especially in young birds. -- Rada (brown "hen") bows and coos sometimes to...

    hello, I am brand new to dove ownership. 8 months ago I was given a 3 month old female ringneck dove whom I have absolutely fallen in love with. She is well bonded with me and spends most of the day out in my home interacting with me as I do my daily chores etc. I have been told several times...

    I am soon going to build an aviary (in the next 1-2 weeks) and I am also going to get three more pigeons. Right now I have two pigeons, a roller and a satinette, both female. I was thinking that maybe I will get three rollers, two females and one male so that they can't breed too fast and so...

    Well 'my disease' with pigeons is on the incline lol. Have a second loft built, now 4 pairs coming. What's the best way to put these 'breeding stock' into my empty loft? Cocks first? Let them choose their nest box.. Hens first? Mad party? Place 'em all in at once... Couples dance? Add a male...
  11. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I just got two new diamond doves. These are my first birds, and so far they are lovely. I'm very curious and hoping I have a male/ female pairing. However, the lady at the store told me they were both male. One has a much thicker eye-ring than the other and is more vocal. Any help would be...

    What do you think of these? the first pic is a mueleman-Trenton cross, speckled squeeker. the next is a red Trenton she probably has the best flying young birds, the next is the father of the speckled one and is a pure Trenton. The last pic is a meuleman, and is the hen for the speckled one. Do...

    I would like to share to you my birds. Both are from an unknown line, it's OK to me because I would like to start from scratch. ^_^ Hen Cock All comments are welcomed :) Thanks for viewing.

    Anyone with this bloodline better paint them gold! Stop flying them and sell. Did you see this bird went for over $400,000.
  16. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I'd like to move some pigeons from one place to another. There are already a few pigeons living in the 'to' location. They are a mated pair and a squab with his/her feathers coming in nicely and just starting to peck at the ground sometimes. Is it not good to introduce new pigeons before this...

    I just received a pair of birds in the mail. One of them has an eye infection and the other one seems to be extremely weak and can barely walk. I gave them some feed, water, and oyster shells which they have been nibbling on and drinking. Here is the picture of the eye infection. I haven't seen...

    Hey, i am soon gonna get some indian fan tails. I looked around the internet and could not find any good sources on how to take care of them and how to set up a loft for them. I will be building a new loft for them with a aviary. The loft will be 5' 7'. Im not gonna keep a lot of them. I have...

    I just received my first pair of breeders. They arrived via mail yesterday. They are now the only two birds in my loft. I placed feed in for them yesterday morning. I pulled it out last night. Went in this morning, called them, and placed feed for them again. I don't think they have eaten...
