  1. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Ok well I have two pigeons that came from the same nest but I don't know much of anything about them. I had to take them because they were going to get thrown into a trash compactor otherwise. One thing I was wondering was how old they are which would be the first step towards properly caring...

    Hi everyone, Same story you've heard many times on this board, but I have to post it again... About a month ago, a pigeon family moved into my balcony and laid two eggs. While both the eggs hatched about a week ago, only one of the two survived. The last seven days the parents have been...

    My wife and I found a baby pigeon last august at the fair, featherless and on the ground. We watched it for a day and a half and the parents did not claim it.....so my wife did. She fed this bird which is full grown now. It obviously is more attached to her and is "usually" nice to her. This...

    About 5 days ago, i found a baby dove in my backyard at the base of the date palm that is home to a flock of feral doves. Based on the day-by-day photos of racing pigeon babies here, I have concluded that she is about 17 days old now. http://www.speedpigeon.com/baby_racing_pigeon.htm At...

    Hello fellow Pigeon People, I have something I want to share with you all, but I am not sure how you will react to it. I have told you in a previous post that I had intended to take a pair of birds from the feral flock I feed each morning and attempt to have them breed in my spare room so...

    Hello. I have no experience in hand-raising birds, but somehow got two hatchlings of fantails, and was feeding them with the mixture of Gerber (chicken), plain yogurt and vitamins and amino acids. They are fed three times a day, and when feeding I checked the size of the crop so that I am not...

    I'm starting this thread for Landy ([email protected]). She contacted me this morning by PM regarding her 10 day old baby who's having some problems. I don't have the experience she needs and am hoping someone who does can respond. All I could think of to recommend is supplemental heat and probiotics...

    Hi, I am handfeeding a baby pigeon. It was thrown out of the nest several times by the parents, who stopped feeding it, so I took it out of the loft at about one week and I am feeding him/her Kaytee Exact. The baby is about one month now, he's getting his feathers in and we've lovingly named...

    I had a great experience with hand rearing two baby ferals as I'm sure some of you recall, but as they were raised together they have strong instincts that tie them to the wild and so I've decided to build them an outside aviary. I'm almost finished construction. :) The aviary is about 9 feet...
