  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I have a young male pet companion pigeon that i adopted when he was around 1½ months old, and he is now circa 4-5 months old.

  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    So I got a rescue pigeon about 3 weeks ago now and I have no idea what I'm doing. Originally, I was scared to interact with her because I'd read that it would destroy her trust in me forever. I'm still scared of this. Recently I've been trying to handle her more just to try and show that I'm...

    I read that apple cider vinegar benefits birds if you put a bit of it in their drinking water, but I could only find white vinegar in my stores. Would it be the same?

    I adopted a lone younger (maybe 1 month old) male pigeon, and hes still adjusting into his new cage until I will let him free roam in my apartment. He seems to be comfortable and not too nervous, since he preen and rests with no worries. He even let me touch and handle him without being scared...

    I was digging through some old pics and found these ones from 2016-2017. They were my indoor pets. My Jacobins. They were sold to me as a pair, however they fought constantly and had to be separated. I assumed they were both male. I sold one back to his breeder. After I sold the Jacobin...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...
