    Hi guys. As some of you may have read, Turkey is giving me a scare with this choking and spitting up stuff. Some new things are - she is eating the red pigeon grit now. She will only eat Milo. Her new cage is complete enough for her to be in it now, but it's still under...

    Hi all. I am really worried about Bacon. I know that changes in droppings can be the early sign of things wrong in pigeons, so here is what I have seen. It has been for two days now that her poops have been REALLY watery. There is still some white urine in them but there is like a pool of...

    Again I have this feeling about the grit. Yesterday Turkey opened her beak, stretched out her neck, and shook her head. Over and over and over she did this. Anyone seen this before? The grit size that I'm using is smaller then the smallest white seeds. I held the grit dish in...

    Yesterday as I was watching my pigeons I noticed 2 of my old hens eating the eggshell of one of my new babies and it reminded me of some advice I was given many years ago from an old timer. He told me to save all the chicken eggshells and clean,then grind them and offer it to the birds as a...

    Hi all, As I was getting off of the subway yesterday, I noticed a young pigeon standing under the station (in my part of New York, it's elevated). He was running around, dodging cars, and flapping his wings (trying to fly back up to a nest, I presume). If the area were less busy, I probably...

    I read that pigeons do need to have grit in their diet. First of all is this true and second how much or often do you feed it to them?? Also, I read that pigeons should have regular feeding times. Is this true or should he be able to eat whenever he wants? The last thing I want to ask is, he...

    I have four Fantails that are the most finicky eaters on the planet. They rival cats in picky taste. They will eat only small things - dove and quail mix; Harrison's pellets, and POWEDERED pigeon grit. My vet insists they will eat racing mix and I should switch them over for better nutrition...

    What is the usual amount of times a week red pigeon grit/ oyster shell is given to the birds. Does the frequency change during mating and when young are being fed? What sort of container does a person give pigeon grit to pigeons in? Can grit cause contamination even if it kept free of...

    I want to thank you for your help so far and update you on our young pigeon. We call it Ellington, or Ell for short. Could be Ellie if its female. I got her pigeon feed and pigeon grit [which I keep in a separate bowl.] So far I haven't seen any interest in the grit but maybe when I'm not around...

    Hi. I'm so glad we found this site. We spent alot of time searching wild bird rescue and rehab. There wasn't too much on pigeons and nothing about the bonding that happens when caring for one of these guys. I was happy to read about other people loving their pigeons. I was so surprised at my...

    Hey, glad I found you! I manage a small gift shop and last night a ferral juvinile pigeon fell out of our air duct! He has a nasty injury on the side of his head that is sealed, dry and seems to be healing nicely. The grey-yellow scab is kind of extended and sealed over his eye. Otherwise he is...
