    Apologies if I'm posting in the wrong area. I've found a pigeon with a suspected broken left wing and leg. It can't move but when gently touched, the right wing and leg are responsive. I'm based in London, England and I've called the RSPCA but they don't seem interested unfortunately...
  2. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    I've been heavily considering getting a companion/pet bird for a long time now, and had just never really put a ton of thought into what KIND of bird I'd wanted. Recently though I've decided that I want to get a pigeon, I've been doing as much research as I possibly can. And I am currently...

    I'm in York County PA... Wildlife rescue says they don't help with pigeons, County SPCA not open today (left message, maybe they'll call back) Pigeon does not have a leg band, looks fat and happy but can't seem to fly or walk - I have it in a box in my office so it wouldn't get run over in the...
  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I found two white pigeons in the parking lot of my condominium last night. I don't know what time they got there, but they just stood together for at least an hour or so without moving (even as cars with bright headlights passed only feet away). I was able to coax them into a large dog crate...
  5. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Long story short, We rescue wildlife normally squirrels, opossums, fawns. We received a call several months ago about a pigeon in distress. The pigeon as it turns out is a registered racing pigeon from Atlanta, Ga. We contacted the owner and he didnt seem as excited as we thought he should/would...
  6. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I just thought I'd make another thread as long as I'm here & feeling talkative :) Who has experience in pigeon & dove rescue? I'd like to own my own rescue loft when I'm a bit older and I have some more money, I'd just like to hear people's experiences. Is it expensive? I adopted my birds from...
  7. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    Hello! I am called Jessi, and I'm new here. Unfortunately, I don't have any doves or pigeons right now. I was raising an orphaned white-winged dove (as seen in my avatar and signature) that fell out of the nest and was about to be killed by a hawk at my sister's workplace, but that's a different...
  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    The place I usually feed the pigeons has an occasional youngster that fell or got pushed out of it's nest. I've placed many youngsters back on their loft and watched out for them. This morning I found a 3 week old youngster wandering around.(Short tail and still baby fuzz on him) I put him back...

    I was at a wildlife rescue center dropping off an injured rabbit I found when they noted that they don't take in pigeons (because they are not a native species) and feel horrible having to turn away hundreds of mostly rock dove fledglings. Is anyone interested in being on their list of pigeon...

    I found an injured pigeon outside of my work today and took him (?) to the vet. He has lice and mites but they administered an oral pesticide antibiotic which should kill all of them in 48 hours. The vet said that the pigeon cannot fly and offered to euthanize, which I would not do. He said that...

    Hi there! I've luckily come across this forum and am hoping to get some advice. My daughter found a baby pigeon this morning and I'm not quite sure what to do with it. I think it came from the nest under the eaves of our house, but the nest is about 30 feet up and I haven't seen the parents...
