    I saw mention of someone building a loft with no nest bowls at all...just perches. Do the piji pairs stop laying? Do they lay where ever they can and the eggs just roll around, fall and break? Does removing nest bowls stop or effect laying habits/patterns at all? This would certainly be a simple...

    So, I have had suspicions for some time now that Sophie might be a "he" and not a "she"--she does the male bowing and circling dance, etc.--but most importantly, in the almost year since I found her in the park, there have been no eggs. The last couple of days, I noticed she was acting a little...

    Hello to everyone. :) Two weeks ago I bought a pair of homers (4years old). One day later they mated. About 11 days later, still no eggs were laid, the cock escaped. One day later, I bought another cock, and another day later he mated with the same hen as before. Today, after the second...

    It's been awhile since I've given an update on Juliet and Noel -- they are really settling into their home here and their personalities are really showing now. Noel is the "typical" teenager -- full of energy; hoping all over the cage and "calling" every day for time out of the cage. She also...

    Well, my first pair of homers have another set of eggs. Shortly after getting them for my birthday and building them a loft they sat on a pair of eggs that proved to be infertile. They soon sat on another pair, on the floor, which hatched Dec. 26. Those little ones have really grown fast and...

    I found these two doll babies nestled under Malio this morning Yep! You've read that right And now for the rest of the story. I went to clean the aviary this morning & spotted a half (empty) eggshell on the platform perch. I had just walked by Sadie's nest & it was empty. I knew that...

    How in heck do the babies leave the nest when it is 5 feet off the floor? My first pair laid 2 infertle eggs in a high nest and finally abandoned them, which I removed. A week or so later they made a nest on the floor and hatched a pair on 26 December. Those have really grown and are probably...

    Her "nest" that is. Sky would sit in her old "nest" in her old small cage but it took her a week to sit in the new one in the new big aviary cage. It's a pair of my pjs (my thought process here is maybe the smell of me on them might be good towards her liking me more) with just some toilet...

    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...

    I'd appreciate any advise 'cause I have no idea what to do. I was gifted a pair of birds in late Oct. and built them a 6x8 foot loft and quickly threw up a 5 gal.bucket for a nest. I left about 3 inches of the lid on to keep things from coming out. I put in some alfalfa and pine needles and...

    I bought 2 pairs of old german owls and 1 pair (male female hopefully) of gazzi modenas at the Sturbridge Show earlier this year. Currently they're being kept in the basement until I complete their loft. The past 4 days I've noticed 2 eggs on the floor of the cage (a 6ft. long X 3ft. wide X 5ft...

    I'm planning on using cat litter in my nest bowls this winter to try and keep the nests warm and dry. Should I put the litter in the bowls and let them build their nests on top of the litter or wait til they build their nest then remove it and put the litter underneath? The reason I ask is...

    Hi all, i was wondering how can you tell a good racer to breed from, besides the results they have, can you tell from the feel of it and the look of it,. I have birds i want to breed racers from an i would like to breed the best to best if possible. I don't want to breed a pile of birds and most...
