  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    this is sort of a weird question, but i can only find topics about care. i adopted a 12 week old cock two days ago, he was hand raised and handled frequently so he is quite tame, but reasonably anxious about being in a new place with someone he's never met. my question is: how long have people...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Back with another question on my newly-acquired indoor pet pigeon: I adopted a white pigeon just about two weeks ago. He's not a king - looks like a release dove. I'm in the U.S., and adopted him from animal services in Maryland. (Animal services usually picks up animals who are homeless...

    I've been taking care of an abandoned squeaker I found at the park the other day (approx 1 month old). He was having trouble picking up seeds by himself, so I tried to help him. I also supplemented nutrition via syringe (we have young pigeon formula), which he definitely didn't enjoy. This...

    So hi again everyone, I'm back with another question about my pet pigeon. I used this forum back in 2011 when my pet pigeon Janine had a cloaca prolapse and she recovered since then and thankfully she's still with me alive and well, she's around 11 years old and doing well. The reason I'm...
  7. Pigeons & Doves Wanted & For Sale
    My pet capuchin recently passed away from unknown causes, it was extremely sudden so I’m a complete wreck, I loved her so much. My homes too quiet now, and I think I’m ready for another pige. I’m mainly looking for an exhibition homer, dragoon, American show racer, or a Lahore. Although I’m...

    Hi there, I recently rescued a young pigeon that was brought into my animal hospital about 2 months ago. She was fairly young when she first came in, but very healthy. I tube fed her for only a day in a half as she started eating on her own quickly and gaining weight. She became very social...

    So my wife and I picked up an adorable male Old Frills Satinette. He is a very sweet bird. He came from a breeder in New Mexico and that's all I know about him. His band shows he was born in 2018. The issue we are having is that he seems very scared. It's been a week and he does hop on my hand...
  10. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi there! I'm a 16-year-old new dove owner. I've had parrots before, but there were plenty of guides on how to care for them online. For doves, however, it's been a bit tougher for me to find some good websites, as they're usually really old domains that have been taken down already. I've read...
  11. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I'm new, I've always wanted a pigeon because I admire their ability to bond for life. But, I'm unsure whether or not I can take care of one. I've heard their poop is very big and disgusting. What about toys? Do they need any? What about health issues? Do they get along with parrots? How easy is...
  12. Pigeons & Doves Wanted & For Sale
    I've recently had a pretty big population boom and have more pigeons than I can tend for. I have 20 pigeons that I am looking to rehome. I do not want to break up pre-existing pairs. All of the mixes are with birmingham rollers. The pigeons available are: Birmingham rollers: 13 total, 3 pairs...
  13. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I saw someone online say that pigeons can't digest "leaf, stem, root, tuber, vegetable flesh, or fruit" (essentially all vegetables) and I've tried googling this to find out more about it but I can't find anything. I feed my pet pigeon chopped vegetables every three days in addition to her...

    Every time we let this guy out, he flaps around in a circle and hovers above the ground for 30 seconds or so. He kinda has issues flying (he has poor lift and a drooping wing) but he's totally done it before, usually when wants to get away from me. But once I saw him fly all the way to the...

    I have two pigeons; one is male and the other is female. The male pigeon, that was adopted earlier than the female, doesn't have many problems except for desperately moving in the cage as if he wants to get out of there. He is well tamed that he doesn't reject me touching and likes to jump up...
  16. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello, I am from South Korea, and I adopted a white pigeon last week. So he must be about 5~6 weeks old. Though I have been growing him by myself for only a week, he is pretty tamed that he climbs onto my finger or my shoulder when I stretch my hand into the box where I put his nest...

    Hi - it's been so long since I joined I changed email and now I had to join as a new member, but you all were very helpful when I first inherited my dead brothers pigeon, Aldo, who never learned to feed himself. Well I've been hand putting seed down his throat for at least 5 years now and he...
  18. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi everyone! I’m going to be getting my first pigeon soon, and have a couple questions. If I get an adult bird will it be able to be tamed and will it even be able to bond with me? Should I get a male or female, which make better pets? Are some breeds harder or easier to keep? And I know they...

    I posted in here a little over a week ago about finding a pigeon and being unable to find a vet for her. Long story short, I finally was able to get her to a vet. Her health is actually quite good. She's a little skinny but besides that all she has is some feather lice and some pressure sores...
  20. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    The other day my boyfriend and I found a pigeon in our little town that we believe to be domesticated. It's white with brown markings, an orange beak, and red-ish legs. It's not banded. When we saw it outside it was walking into store fronts and standing still in the middle of pathways which...
