    Hi, im not sure where this goes, so im posting this here. Ever since my first rescue, im fascinated by Pigeons, especially the babies & I sort of keep a track of New Born Babies that come to my balcony every morning. There is a 'Pair' that must have given birth to a dozen babies this year...

    Hi all- So my fantail pair has been "sort of" sharing the responsibility of sitting on their eggs- But they often leave the eggs unattended off and on for several hours a day- Is this normal? And what are the chances that the eggs will actually hatch as expected? Thanks for input everyone!

    I have nice pair that's been up for sale, and I have a family interested in buying quite a few of my birds, including that pair. Unfortunately that pair just hatched their first child 3 days ago, and I'm not sure what to do. Could I give the baby to a different pigeon pair to raise, instead? Is...

  7. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Let me start from the beginning ..so about three years ago I went to the Oregon coast and caught 2 pairs of very unique (icy blue with boots) feral barred pigeons. They are very good parents so I decided to swap eggs with my Uzbek tumblers, Dragoons and Trumpeters eggs because the ferals feed...
  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, I live on the Gold Coast in Australia. On my balcony, underneath our barbeque, a pigeon made a nest and laid two eggs. We didn't know this and removed the cover of our barbeque in order to use it, only to notice the nest. With it being placed where it was we weren't able to use the barbeque...
  9. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    My pair of white ringnecks just got their first baby and I was wondering what color it would end up as. Both parents are white (you can see a bleeched grayish ring around the neck), but I was wondering if there is a possibility that they have other colors in their genes?
  10. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I've been a proud owner of two fantail pigeons for the past year and decided it was time to let them breed for a fourth member of our little family. Should I get this baby a separate cage of his/her own or would be it be all right to get a larger cage and let them stay together? I've heard of...

Since I've had them (about 8 months), the other pair has laid and reared two clutches, working on number three. This other pair that I have has started one clutch, only to abandon the one...

    Edit: As of this morning (June 14th), the bird has flown off from the balcony and I guess, to live with the other birds. Thanks for everyone's help! Hi, There was no nest on my balcony, so I'm not sure how this happened (because it is an empty cement balcony clear of any debris...so I'm...
  14. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    :confused::(I'm not sure what to do, if anything. I raised a pigeon and released her last summer. Now she's had two sets of babies on my balcony. The day she had her second set, the first set of babies were banned from the balcony (I'm guessing they're about 40 days old). Is this normal...
  15. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    A pair of pigeons were nesting on the first floor fire escape of the lightwell in the building next to mine. This overlooks my building's driveway - I walk down it whenever I want to get to my car in the carport. I would hear the squeaking babies when I walked by...I don't live on that side of...
