  4. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    I have seen many posts about PMV and I find it very disturbing that so many are being diagnosed with this virus when I believe that it is entirely possible that some of these birds merely have a vitamin B deficiency. The symptoms are the same. The nervous system is affected and tremors, loss of...

    How old is a pigeon before it usually leaves the nest? I also read somewhere after the young have hatched you should place another bowl and in 2 weeks the pair will lay more eggs and the father tends more to the young. Is this correct? Does anyone know where there is something that shows a Life...

    Had the camera out this morning. The first video is of one of my very first hatched young birds, who is obviously a cock bird. He's either the last or one of the last birds to trap every day. He's very stubborn and I think HE thinks he's a lady's man. He spends most of his day with a hump in his...

    After truly enjoying the few wild pigeons that called my barn home, and developing a relationship with them, I have decided that I may wish to pursue pigeon keeping. I'm not new to birds, but pigeon requirements are a little different than most. I've kept quail, turkey, chickens, finches...

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-2SDXh4WBK8&feature=related Would you shoot a hawk if it were attaking your birds? I wouldn't. I can't believe that there are some really big pigeon lovers out there who would shoot hawks and falcons to protect they're birds. :mad:

    You can learn so much by finding a pigeon club in your local area and joining. Go to the National Pigeon Association website...search the web, and I'm sure you'll find a club near you. Find the breeds you love, work with them and show your birds. It's a lot of fun. You will never regret it...
