    I have a female homer (Giuseppe) and a female Komono Tumbler (Maugin) that have been living in my apartment with me for more than a year. Lately I feel like I can’t properly take care of these birds because I have started a job with hours 50+ a week. I spend a lot of time feeling bad for these...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    We've had one girl (Alberta) for about six months and recently thought she might be happier with a companion. We got another female because we didn't want fertilized eggs or any fights, but Alberta is constantly after the new girl (Jewel). I was told to keep them together in a box at night and...
  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi, i have a pet pigeon that me and my partner rescued when he was a few weeks old wandering outside in the road, but now he is so agressive with my other half (and me also but not as much). I will try to explain as much as i can about his upbringing. He was lovely and cuddly at first with the...
  4. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi everyone, I'm currently looking at getting a pet pigeon and I think I would need some advice. I have done a lot of research on pigeons including their behaviour and attitudes however I still have some concerns. 1. I was wondering if pigeons are okay being indoor pets. I don't mind the...

    I'm Atlanta. Are there any local members in the sprawl that is metro Atlanta that would be interested in a meetup or get together to talk pet pigeons and give each other advice?
  6. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I found Bertie outside of my office building about a month ago. Long story short he had a 2018 band and I was able to contact the owner and he wasn't being raced at the time but somehow got lost and flew 30miles from home into Atlanta. I still have him and have decided to keep him. I took him...
  7. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Please advice me on what to do! Yesterday my pigeon threw up a load of sunflower seeds. He managed to get in the treat box and decided to feast on them. I thought it was normal, as I also get sick after loads of candy, so I kept an eye on him, but thought he was acting normal, although a bit...
  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, I'm from Sri Lanka. I found a tamed (pet pigieon) black pigeon. (I guess it is tamed because there is a metal nut in his leg. Also I have doubt whether owner has cut his feathers to avoid flying away. I heard some people do this.) I found it a muddy water pit sorrounded by crows in a...
  9. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    Hi, I'm looking to adopt a pigeon in a few months and I would like to know if there are any pigeon adoption agencies or breeders in my area. Even if you are not in the area, any tips on what to look for for a good breeder would be appreciated (I've heard there are a lot not so good pigeon...
  10. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi! I have Celiac disease, so I'm gluten-free, and my doctor tells me that I really shouldn't have any gluten in the house at all (because even the smallest contamination can cause illness if you have Celiac). So I'm looking to put my pigeons on a gluten-free diet as well, if possible, to avoid...
  11. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I've heard it all, and none of it adds up: Pick up your pigeon and pet them to get them used to your hands. Don't pick up your pigeon until they're ready or they'll never trust you. Let your pigeon bite your hand. Don't let your pigeon bite your hand. I want to hear all of y'all's stances on...

    Okay so. I don't have specific dates yet, but I know that sometime in late February/March I need to take a school-related trip somewhere that's about 7 hours away. I don't have any local friends [a tragic story], so I have no one to take care of Eleanor, and I'm sure she'd miss me too much...

  14. Pet Pigeons And Doves

  15. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I'm at a loss. I can't get a 2nd pigeon (I'm disabled, and only managing to keep him right now because he's my registered ESA). He's a rescue from a dove release, shelters couldn't take or would euthanize, so it wasn't an impulse adoption. I feel really guilty. It's been almost a year, he's the...

    Hi all, Im new here. (Please excuse my english- its not my home language). I just want to share my story. I picked up a very young pigeon on the pavement next to a very busy road at a shopping centre in our city. She had back feathers missing and couln't walk. I doctored her for two months and...
  17. Pigeons & Doves Wanted & For Sale
    I have a white and brown Pigeon that I rescued a couple of years ago. While he is a great pet, he creates some allergy problems so I'd like to find a good home for him. His name is Moe. He is an indoor pigeon. His wings are currently clipped to prevent him flying away and getting lost when I...
  18. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi, I rescued an adult white homing pigeon (unknown age, but very healthy and active) about 7 months ago. He was a survivor of a dove release nearby, local orgs told me either keep him or they'd euthanize him, so now he's my pet but I'm not in a situation to adopt a mate for him. Sex unknown...
  19. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi! I have very recently taken in a beautiful pigeon who is possibly abandoned, as suggested by leg-bands that do not belong to any organisation as such, but kept as a pet. However, back to the reason I posted this question: The pigeon is very healthy, eats well (has a few favorite...
  20. Non Pigeon and Dove Bird Emergencies
    Hi all, I have had my formerly feral, non-releasable magpie, Maggie, for almost 4 years now (she was found with a wing break that left her flightless). For the first time I've noticed since I've had her, Maggie's beak is looking crooked - please see attached pictures. As of at least a month or...
