    Hello, this is my first time posting here - sorry if I’m posting in the wrong place. I found an injured baby pigeon on the ground a few weeks ago. She was about 3-4 weeks, badly scalped, poor nutrition and was missing many feathers. Shes doing much better now (thank goodness) - she has a good...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    So, I just lost one of my six pigeons today, so there are now more cocks than hens. To my knowledge, no one's paired up. I'd rather not run out and get another hen right now. I just want to be sure I can keep these five safe and healthy for a while. I'll probably get a hen for whichever poor...

    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...

    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...
  5. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons

    I don't know if it is normal or not, but I got two pigeons about 2 weeks back and I have never heard them make a noise and yet today one of the pigeons is lying down in the nest basket and cooing or "rrroorrrrooorrrooo"ing VERY loudly. He still gets up and runs away if I try to touch him so...

    My 5 year old pigeon is behaving in weird way. Whenever I eat something, my pigeo appears by my plate and starts eating fron my plate. Even if she isnt hungry, my pigeo will want whatever I am eating even if its a chocolate or chips. This behavior has started since 2 weeks. Even today she jumped...

    Help! Can anyone give me advice on how to keep my new king pigeon happy? She started out really fearful (shaking and trembling every time we even look at her), then a day later, reacted very aggressively when we approached her very slowly and gently. She wouldn't eat or drink in the meantime...

    Desperately need advice. We are wildlife rehabers in North Carolina. Two years ago we rescued a baby pigeon at a junk yard. It was winter, so she learned to fly in the house and got so good, she has since survived two hawk attacks when flying outside. She lives in the house with us and has...
