    It is midwinter. The forecasters say the temperature will plummet tonight. It is also Christmas day. The city centre will be empty all day. No french fries or bits of bread roll or pizza dropped accidentally or deliberately by the shoppers for the pigeons to eat. I went into the city before...

    Pigeons make wonderful pets and are pretty easy to care for, here are some basic things that pigeons need: Water: 1. Fresh water (change it twice a day if it gets dirty quickly) Feed: 2. A good pigeon mix either from a feed supply or pigeon supply store is best. Bulk stores often carry some...

    Hello everyone! About 6 weeks ago, I saw a car hit a pigeon and drive away. The poor thing was trying to limp the side of the road so I pulled over thinking the bird was dying but was surprised to find it alive and alert. I took "Midge" home thinking she would either die comfortably in my...

    Found this pigeon out back next to the blower intake, looks like it's wings are OK it can flap them, but both of it's legs seems to just hang underneath and him, can't seem to walk or even move them, so he can't get off the ground. Looks like he might have got tangled up with the building air...

    Sometimes Ill boil a pot of rice- when it cools, ill bring the whole thing to the Boston Common to feed to the pigeons- They love cooked rice, and wolf it down.... Same thing with bread, though I read here bread is not good for pigeons. Is bread fattening? And rice? There are pigeons in my city...

    Hi. We found an abandoned baby pigeon several weeks ago which was in a pretty bad state. We have been looking after it since and it made an excellent recovery. A few days ago, however, it started making strange choking sounds each time it tried to eat. These continue for several minutes before...

    Thanks, everybody. Predictably, I have more questions, now that my visitor has been around for a few days. He is housed in a large plastic cat carrier on a 3rd floor balcony with sun during the day, and a metal mesh door that he can see out of. If it gets a bit cool at night (we're down to...

    Hi, I am just wanting to know what age does a pigeon begin to nest. If she is a female, at what age do they start to make nests, and what materials are safe to give pigeons for use for their nests. :confused: I do want Sweetie to be able to make her own nest (bed) the way she likes it. She is...

    I noticed a little bit ago that Mel had a cut under his left wing, on his crop. I thought maybe Misty pecked him, but it looks like a clean 'slice' about 1/8" long. The top membrane is cut and it was bleeding a little, but I see another layer of skin under there, where the food is. I then...

    I found a pigeon out in our warehouse this morning. They tell me that he flew in there and landed on a beam. It has slept most of the morning. I now have it in the office in a box, but it won't drink or eat anything. At first he was alert and looking around. He acts like he can't fly. Now...

    I am so happy to have found this forum :). Yesterday, I spied a young pigeon walking in the alley behind my house and since there are alot of cats around here and he didn't seem to know how to fly, I scooped him up and brought him inside. He is a 'peeper', tail feathers not fully grown, a few...
