  1. 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...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi all -- Since my post yesterday, I have adopted 2 pigeons. They are a mated pair, about one year old. I have taken care of many feral pigeons, but this is my first adopted pair, and I have some questions about their behavior from experienced pigeon owners. Having not owned them for more...
  3. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Would a feral make a good pet? What would be the best age to raise from for this? I see lots of pigeons nesting under a parking garage near here. A few babies have died now. I'm wondering if I should take one and raise it either for release or to keep as a pet. It's a tough place for pigeons. I...
  4. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Iv'e taken care of two ringneck doves for about a year now, I give them both nesting material and a large shoebox they nest in. They take turns sitting on their eggs and sitting together. I've never gotten them tested or brought to the vet to ask for sexing. Obviously I have at least one hen...
  5. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I have to start doing short business trips, 2 to 4 days and cannot take my pet doves with. They are a bonded female and male. How long is it is safe to leave them alone if i also leave plenty of water and food? Thank you in advance for your advise.

    Hi! I have been thinking of adopting pigeons for a while. I check petfinder frequently and usually have no luck. I live in Michigan. Im wondering what breed of pigeon would make a good house pet? I would get 2. I would also want the breed to like to be handled and /or cuddled. Also- if anyone...
  8. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello all! This may seem silly (what's in a name, after all?), but I was wondering if anyone has had any experience renaming adopted pigeons? My husband and I want to adopt a pair of pigeons, but we love naming our pets. I know it is difficult to rename parrots, is it the same with pigeons?

The pigeon just walks away. my female min pin sometimes help me round up the one that can't fly. I can even let the dogs into coop and the...

    Hello, friends. I wondered is any members in the Orange County CA area can recommend a good avian vet who might also board pets for short periods of time (would be for when I have to travel for business). Thanks.

    Over the past year I've been collecting pretty moulted feathers from my guys. Today I finally did something with them and made a couple pairs of earrings. Nothing spectacular, but I wanted a pair of feather earrings (they're in right now) and I love my birds <3 . Here's a pic of me sporting a...

  17. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    The Saturday before Easter I got two hens from Jason (redleg23) for two of my bachelor boys, and finally got a chance to take pix of them with their mates. I let them choose among the 4 eligible cockbirds and here they are with the winners: Francie & Wesley White Flights Melanie & Little Red...

    Sadly i don't think i can get them. I'm so enthralled with doves and Portuguese Tumblers, even having 1 or 2 would make me so satisfied. I yearn for the companionship of having doves or pigeons. I have 3 cockatiels and 2 budgies, and i'm severely bonded with all of them. Even though some of...

    *sigh* I need a moment... (silence) Ok, I'm done. First off I want to thank everyone for the sympathy posts in my other thread. The news I received during my dog's vet visit was a bit of a shock to me and left a bit of a void in my life at this point.(Female members on this site, you probably...
