    Hello everyone! My current orphaned pigeons are 4 weeks old this week. I have been caring for them since they were about 2 -3 days old. These have been my healthiest, most energetic baby pigeons ever. Most normal poop I've ever seen, super appetites, and prettiest feathers. Last week (week...
  3. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I found these two babies that fell out of their nest and I know they were brothers because I have seen them in the nest together before. They are about two weeks old. They seemed kinda sick so I took them to a vet and he said one was sick and the other was just very weak because he was really...

    Hello everyone I found this beautiful little baby trying to run away from a cat this morning, some of her feathers at the back are a little scuffed up, but thankfully there's no blood or anything. I called a wildlife rescue, unfortunately the woman wasn't very helpful, she told us to put her...
  5. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, I found a seemingly teenage pigeon 2 days ago. She has all her feathers on her body and around her head (seems to still be growing new ones right below beak near the chest area). She can't fully fly yet though, just a few feet at a time. I've been trying to feed her but she won't eat. I...

    HELP?! Orphan Pigeon ok, so I have raised many breeds of pigeons since I was very young, and with much success. But I have never had to hand raise a squab bc I have always had pairs that would adopt ANYTHING. I no longer have all of my pigeons and in fact have moved to a large city. While I...

    Hello everyone! I have 11 white homing pigeons. I found one of them dead behind the loft door this morning and I think it was the mother of the 2 squeakers. I think it was the mother because it looks like the one that was with the squeakers most of the time. The father always stands in the...

  11. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    When I went out to my loft today I found a squab on the floor. I think he must have fallen out of the nest. I'm not sure how old he is, he's still mostly bald with prickly little feathers all over. His crop feels full, but I'm not sure if that's because he's only been down there for a day...
