    I've brought this up before but it's been a couple of years, but I just discovered today another hen plucking and eating her babies feathers. We've got a few new members, some of which have had birds for years, so I thought I'd pick their brains for answers. A short history...........back in...

    The brand of hand-feeding formula that I'm researching at the moment is manufactured by "Harrison's", a renowned, reputable brand of primarily-organic parrot food. For a while I've been considering their pelleted diet for Moody, as it does not contain meat and is very comparable to leading...

    Hi, I posted this on my previous thread but thought maybe I should start a new one. Penny is definitely not feeling well. She's quite inactive, more so even than when she was sitting on her eggs. She's staying all puffed up and closing her eyes a lot. I noticed it mostly this morning but it...

    Hi all, I haven't posted recently though have checked in to read every now and then. Always informative and enjoyable. Now I have a question about nest sitting. My hen, Penny, had been laying two eggs about every two weeks. I was originally taking the first one away after 24-48 hours, and she...

    About 5 days ago, i found a baby dove in my backyard at the base of the date palm that is home to a flock of feral doves. Based on the day-by-day photos of racing pigeon babies here, I have concluded that she is about 17 days old now. http://www.speedpigeon.com/baby_racing_pigeon.htm At...

    Hi all, I've been feeding the ferals regular wild bird seed up till now when someone suggested I feed a pigeon-specific mix. The brand she uses is Brown's (http://www.fmbrown.com/bird_Pigeon_Thrifty.htm), which I couldn't find locally, so I ended up with Baden, which looks to have similar...

    Hi everyone, I was thinking about 'Pigeon Milk' this morning. I realized 'Mayonnaise' would come fairly close, and if augmented with say "Nutrical" and some supplimental Digestive Enzymes, there might be a basic formula then to consider prospectivly, or to ponder some more. Certainly 'K-T'...

    So, I wanted some more advice. My children (the pijes) are still terribly picky eaters. They look large enough to handle some of the larger seeds. I see pigeons in the train station who look the same size eating whatever they can get, and my birds are (now) psudo cooing at me for more of a...
