    This pigeon was attacked by a crow yesterday morning. Gave him water and millets. His leg seems to be in a very weird position. I don't know if it's broken. Is it going to heal itself? I can't take it to vet as I live in Delhi, India and covid situation in very bad here. What should I do?

    Hey guys found this guy in my terrace today. I have no idea if I’ve posted this to the right place. However he can’t fly and won’t drink or eat. Came across your site and was wondering if anyone here can help tell me how to care for this guy. Not sure if he’s even a baby but based on images I’ve...

    Hi! I'm new to owning a pigeon, I've had Anastasia for about two months now and I think she's really taken to me by now. I couldn't be happier! Now, onto my question! Anastasia makes a really loud cooing sound sometimes. This happens especially in the morning and when she (presumably) wants...

    I’m so moved by this video which shows a man feeding his Parrot friends for last 15+ years and hasn’t failed to do that even during this challenging time of Covid. Wanted to share with all of you. Below is the link to the video https://www.instagram.com/tv/CNFgno_H7Yj/?igshid=1nz6inqlzmqr6

    I am thinking of a planting something new and wish to know of plants that are best for pigeons to forage from? As a bonus, since I also see them, are there any that double as foods for wrens and sparrows?

She seemed fine but n after sneezing once and awhile for a few days she now wheezes quiet a bit. I started giving her the BIRDrx formula, putting it on her perches bc I can't pick her up...

About a week ago, I found a beautiful yet weak pigeon I call Skittles shivering on my way back home so I picked him up and carried him with me.

  10. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I know pigeons should be in pairs to be happy but I don't want babies and I wanna know if two males or females will get along fine without any problems. If I get two females what do I do with the eggs? Will they lose trust if I take their eggs?

    Hi, so I have a white winged dove who has never been weaned it’s my fault cause I thought he would start eating by itself when the time came but now he’s spoiled and won’t eat by himself. I’ve tried so many methods like trying to starve him a bit so he gets the instinct to eat but I always cave...

    I have a few pigeons. They were all nice and healthy. But recently this winter I noticed one pigeon is not eating and standing still. He was not active at all.

    Pretty self explanatory. I have a lovely OGO that I adopted a few months ago. She's very sweet and is starting to warm up to me but still will not tolerate human hands in her personal space. Problem is, I need to trim her nails as they are getting long. I got a brick perch to help abrade them...

    Last night I went to take the trash out and there was a pigeon in my driveway. He was just sitting completely still and blinking, he wouldn't even turn his head. I could get extremely close to him but didn't touch him so as to not scare him. After a while he began to walk around and crane his...

    Hey guys. I'm planning to adopt 3 little fledglings later this month, and I want to know what kind of cage I should use. Its going to be indoors, and I'm leaning towards a ferret cage for sizing and shelves. What dimensions should the cage have for 3 pigeons? Thanks.

    I have been fostering a pigeon with paralyzed legs. It is my first time fostering a bird hence i'm completely clueless. The vet says that he might have touched a power line and the current cut off blood circulation to the legs. He has suggested to give drops of omnacortil and massage with an...
