  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello everybody, first time here! I need expert advise on something. I adopted a male pigeon from my local shelter last February. At the shelter I was told they had him since he was a baby, they hand fed him and they weren't sure about his actual age but not above 1 year old. He is white homing...
  2. Loft Designs
    Hi, I recently bought a pair of your tippler but since I only have one loft I put them together with my racing homer pair. It's just since that since they've been together in the loft, the homer cock won't stop pecking on the two newbies. I'm thinking because the homer has been in the loft...

    Just posting to say hello to everyone and introduce myself. My name is Katie (also known as "Mud" if you ask Lady Bracknell) and I am servant to something resembling a pigeon. I say "resembling" because she treats me like I am very very slow in the head. I will be feeding her and changing her...
  4. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Me and my boyfriend rescued a baby pigeon after my aunties tree got cut down, it's a wood pigeon and we have had him for a couple of weeks now. He's getting pretty big and is eating grit, grain, worms and maggots. He seems perfectly happy and healthy but he constantly chirps really loud and...
  5. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi, I have two pairs of non-releasable pigeons, who live in my apartment with me. I've primarily been using plastic bowls for their food and water, but am trying to change over to different bowls (1) because we need bowls that can be free-standing in the middle of the floor (the plastic bowls...

    Hello, I'm new here. I rescued a baby pigeon with my grandma about seven years ago. Thankfully he has had no problems with his health or anything of that nature. We used to rescue pigeons we saw that had a bad wing, nurse them to health and set them free. This one, since we rescued as a baby...

    Hello everyone, I don't know if any of you will remember me, but I rescued a pigeon from the big city back in September. I came here and you all told me I had a "squeaker" and I really thought I had a female. As months progressed and Belle got older, I realize that, Belle is most definitely...
  9. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi, I have a 9 month old pigeon, male, who has been with me about 12 weeks recovering from a head injury. Went to release him last week, but I think now we need to practice being around the new flock a bit more before he goes. I haven't tamed him, but when I go to feed and talk to him, he...

    Okay, I have an adorable fluffy little pigeon named Piggy. We made a nest for her by the computer, one of her favorite spots. The nest is just a towel, but she LOVES it. She has no problem with me over there, but when a family member wearing a shirt the same color as her feathers came over...

    I wonder if I could get some advice please. Until one week ago I had a small Cockatiel family flock consisting of the flock leader (7 years) and father of three now 2 year old youngsters (two cocks, one hen), and a stepmom (age unknown). The natural mother of the chicks died 1 year ago, and now...

    Hi everyone, Need your invaluable input once again. I have a blind Senegal dove, I'd say he's about a year old now? Anyway I've been trying to make his life more "normal" by getting him a companion. I got him a canary, they are fine together but of course don't interact. I found a local pet...

    I resuced two doves last week and one has a wound on its chest just under her neck that she will not leave alone. I have tried the sweater vest idea, and a vet tried a collar, all to no avail. She finds a way to get under the vest and was able to extricate herself from the collar. I did some...
