    Hi, I adopted a feral pigeon from a local animal rescue yesterday The staff told me that he had flown into the kennels and was extremely friendly towards humans (not flying away when it was approached, flying onto the staff’s heads and shoulders), so animal control decided that it would be best...

    So, my 6 month old has started showing interest in his mother, and naturally, his father isn't too pleased. I'm interested in getting another hen bird in for him, but I've never brought an outside bird into the aviary. I know you should keep new birds quarantined for a few weeks, or get them...

I was informed he was confiscated from a hoarding case, and was left alone for who knows how long when the owner passed...and was kept in an exceptionally small cage.

    Hi folks, I recently purchased a sweet one year old homing pigeon. She's unbonded and very unhappy in her rabbit cage at the moment. She's not yet friendly with people and I'm a little unsure how I should proceed. Should I find her a mate (if so, how?)? Should I sell her to someone who...

    Hello, I've just recently got a new pigeon. It is a high flyer pigeon that I'm told is about 2 months old. It's having trouble warming up to us. It tolerates us and sits on our shoulders for a bit but usually likes to go sit on top of his cage. He won't eat and will barely drink. :( Does this...

  11. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I ended up getting a friend for Mac, a pigeon I got a day ago. She was eating, drinking, etc. fine but looked lonely. The only reason I didn't quarantine Marge, the new girl, and had a short introduction, was because I got them from the same breeder, they came from the same coop, and were...

    Hi all, I just brought home my first pigeon. I was originally planning on getting one in a week or so as I didn't have any food or grit, but I found someone who had to urgently rehome some of her pigeons. Since my cage is pretty much set up, I brought home one of them, with an emergency trip to...

    So, My new pigeon is shaking, it's a light shiver, and she's not puffy. I brought her home yesterday and I have been leaving her alone to adjust, but I'm checking in on her periodically to make sure she's eating and drinking. She does have some issues. She had PMV last year and has a slightly...

    Have been looking for a female friend for Lucy who after a month is still terrified being away from her flock. We went to a local bird mart today and got an approximately year old red bar female who is quite friendly and socialized to people. She has been a pet for the past six months. We will...

    Hello, I have a question about adding a new pigeon to my singleton pigeon. First I will give a brief background. I have had a male damascene pigeon for the last 5 years. He showed up on my doorstep hungry and unbanded. When he decided to stay, I built him an outdoor cage in which he lives in...
  18. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Okay, so a couple months ago my mom and I found a pigeon being attacked by crows/ravens. We took it home, it had a gash under its wing which has since healed with no apparent lasting damage. It's a domestic bird. Not banded, but we tried to integrate it with a local flock and it failed...

    I recently purchased a pair of pigeons who seem to be very healthy except that the hen's dropping are watery with broken chunks of solid poo in them. They have been quarantined for almost two weeks and I locked them in a nest box today in the main coop as the male was starting to coo and sit in...

    A week and a half ago a pigeon flew into the yard and my husband saw how friendly it was. He noticed it had 2 tags on its legs but we couldn't get close enough to see the numbers. He named it Clarence and assume it's male. Clarence stays on the peek of the roof during the day and sleeps in the...
