    My son cleans the pigeon poop out of his pigeon's coop, so I don't have the privilege of the experience to reflect on :). His flock has grown from 2 pigeons to perhaps 30, so we're going to remodel a treehouse and make it the new coop. The current coop has a wooden floor. My son insists on...

    I have a male homing pigeon who I rehabilitated because he could not walk, had lice, and a gaping wound on his chest. I contacted the owner and he didn't want him, so for the past 3 1/2 months. Recently, we adopted another pigeon (a female) and all has been well for the past week or so. But...

    Hi, I'm from Venezuela and there are no products available here. I'm not sure whether I can find apple cider vinegar here as Venezuela is in a huge economic and social crisis. The thing is, I rescued a pigeon 5 months ago when its mother didn't return to the nest. Everything has been more or...

    I've read tons of stuff about pigeon poop but my birds have poop like green(olive) mush. Not bright or or runny but wet. I took out all the bedding so I could start monitoring the poop and this is what I have. They are flying and acting fine and I feed them pigeon formulated seed mix. Any...

    I raise this question only because I would like to know the answer. I regularly feed my downtown flock in the neighorhood park. I spread seed every day and they gobble it up. During the winter they tend to stay out of sight and get to it when they get to it. In the summer though they hang out in...

    Ok so I have spent the last hour trying to understand everything about genetics. I am trying to get some idea of what my babies (currently eggs) might look like. From what I have learned this morning is my hen is a homozygous grizzle, she came from two grizzle parents I learned that means. She...
  10. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    While reading Pt I look out to the balcony and see a banded pigeon in front of my bird room window. Wow, he probably saw my birds and thought it a good place to rest. I put food and water on the balcony and left the door open so I can try and catch her. Well, this sweetie flew right into my...

    A year ago today, I wished Pidgey a HAPPY 55th BIRTHDAY!! I'm running a little late today, but it's STILL before midnight here, soooo...better late than never... HOWEVER, due to Pidgey "dissing" my cats and other issues, I warned him that messing with an older and wiser Scorpio wasn't nice and...

    Hi everyone. I came home yesterday to find my young male white homer a bloody mess. I took him to the vet for x-rays, etc. He has a completely broken wing and the bullet went in a line through from his wing to his chest and punctured his crop so that seeds are actually coming out from the wound...

    I was wondering if anyone is recycling pigeon poo for fertilizer or any other methods. I just thought to share this story that I am making a bio digester to turn the poo into methane gas for lighting and or heating source in the winter. I have over 400+ birds and feed a 50 lb, bag of grain...

    Lewis went into the laundry room tonight to change Honey's and Cosmos' cages. He called to me and said Honey had not pooped all day long - zilch, nada, etc. It was pretty alarming because we've never seen that unless they had an egg and she doesn't. She has been eating fine and seemed well...

    Friends, My wonderful pet (devoted single young pigeon) "Birdy" flies freely around my apartment most days; he sits on my windowsill and looks outside, watching my backyard bird feeder and passerby neighbors. He is such a great pet to me... he sits on my lap when I watch tv, and coos in the...

    Ok well i attempted to pair 2 pair with a cage and a removable mesh divider on 2-19 and 2-20 and there hadn't been any eggs except for the next day which turned out to be that the 2 hens which were separated had paired up. Since then there had been no eggs so i assumed the pairing had been a...
