    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...

    Ok so I raised willow from an egg. I did everything while raising her. It was literally all me. I thought for sure we’d have a strong connection and I was excited for it. She’s 4 months old now and she literally has hated everyone for the last few months because of pigpen puberty. Now she’s in...

    Hi guys so I’m gonna try to make this as short as possible. So I raised my girl from egg. She was hand fed for over 7 weeks and we were bonded. She loved her head pats and she loved getting attention in general. Once she turned about 2.5-3 months old, she just started not liking me. She’s 4...

    Hello! Today I took in a pigeon from a vet clinic that was due to be euthanised today because they couldn't find a carer, so I stepped in and brought her home. She's very underweight, and I suspect she has some kind of fracture to her wing as she holds it up and a little bit out, it looks quite...

  9. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    There is a feral pigeon that I feed occasionally. For the last week he has had a swollen eye. It started off pretty bad (he was unable to open it) but seems to have got a bit better. There is still a big lump on his head and seems to have stopped going down. He shows no signs of pain or...

    Hello to whomever lays eyes on this sincere request for help, I found tonight, in our garden, a mature pigeon laying as if crouched and unable to fly away. It appears to have broken its wing, and seeing as cats frequently roam our neighborhood and garden during the night, I took it in. I found...

    Dear friends, Has anyone ever used Ideal pills (Versele Laga) - these ones: https://www.jedds.com/shop/ideal-pills-100ct500ct/ Are they safe? Are they good? I purchased them out of curiosity and never gave any to my pigeon because they look too big to me. Just now I found them again, still...

    Is green pigeon poop sometimes normal to happen? His poop looks normal most days but the odd day it’s a bright green, and today I noticed it’s green again. He’s acting fine and eating the same. I have vitamins coming for him in the mail. Should I be worried about this or is it normal to happen...

    Today I found a pigeon at work (Lakehurst NJ) who was too weak to fly and almost unresponsive. It looks like it has an eye infection as well. I contacted the secretary of the club on its band and they do not have a record of the owner of that bird. I am currently waiting on a response back but...

    Hi so I have my pigeon out of his cage today and he just cuddled up beside me and is laying down ready to go to sleep but his feathers are puffed up And I heard that can be a sign of sickness. Is it normal for them to puff up when sleeping/resting? He’s acting fine otherwise

    Hi so today I noticed my 40 day old pigeon started randomly getting shaky. I was sitting on the couch with him and I could feel him shaking at times. He’s never done this before and he’s acting totally normal. I heard they can do this when excited, is that true? It happened a little bit after I...
