    Hi guys. My pigeon is now 13 days old and he’s doing good. I just have a question, he will sometimes stretch his neck up and open his mouth then go back to normal. This usually happens after/during feeding. It’s not a constant thing it just happens sometimes and I really don’t know what it could...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi everyone, I'm currently looking at getting a pet pigeon and I think I would need some advice. I have done a lot of research on pigeons including their behaviour and attitudes however I still have some concerns. 1. I was wondering if pigeons are okay being indoor pets. I don't mind the...

    So about 2 years ago I found a pigeon, who was just getting adult feathers (I know nothing about pigeons btw), in the cold. She couldn't fly or walk and was sickly looking. Basically I've been taking care of the pigeon for it's whole life and is perfectly healthy now. She hasn't showed the...

    Hey all! I'm getting a ringneck dove very soon- already purchased everything aaa! And i was just wondering. As of now, I have the cage in my room, but I'm not sure if it is safe there. My room happens to be right next to the kitchen, and tends to smell like whatever I have just cooked. I can...
  5. Wood Pigeons & Others Not Native To North America
    Hi, I live in the UK, Nottingham area and much earlier today I saw a young Woodpigeon that (from my limited quick research) I believe is around 17-19 days old. No Woodpigeons have nested in our garden this year however I still frequently see adults resting in much taller trees around the area...

    I did my research and would like to add a couple of pigeons to my apartment, but still have a few questions. 1) I don't plan on ever releasing them outside but I do want to let them out each day in my apartment for exercise. I understand indoor birds should have access to Vitamin D3 to absorb...
  7. Performing Breeds
    hey there, my question is: if you were a novice fancier and just got 4 young preforming birds would you stock them without letting them fly so as to breed them and fly their offspring? or, would you fly them to prove them and run the risk of BOP attack, skying out, or flying away...

    Hello! The pigeon in this image has been living in my balcony for 2 weeks. It uses to fly away for short periods during the day, but it is always coming back for food and sleep. Can you tell me something about its breed and gender? I suppose it is a female.

    Good day to all ringneck dove breeders I’ve been breeding for two years now. As you know ringneck doves will never stop breeding on their own (or at least mine won’t) and I want to breed only once a year with specific breeding pairs. I was hoping someone could direct me to a website, a link on...

    Hello pigeon-talk community! I have been flying my young toghie tumblers more and more recently as their flight times increase, but I encountered an unusual problem last week. While flying one day, all my bird disappeared for about an hour and then came back. At first I thought a hawk just...
  11. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    I was thinking about someday starting racing too but first I want to know if it is expensive to do. I tried using google to figure how expensive it is but anything I search that has to do with prices and pigeons just comes up with a bunch of things about "Bolt the most expensive pigeon". How...

    Hello. I'm a little worried about my ringneck dove. I got her/him (not sure yet) this afternoon and I have yet to see the bird relieve itself. It has been almost two hours since we left the pet store. I'm wondering if it could be the stress of the move causing the dove to hold it in. Is there...

    WARNING: Long explanation ahead for I can't seem to stop myself from writing I'm a newbie here and to owning a dove so I hope you don't mind my newbie-like questions. :) Okay, you see, I have a female Ringneck dove that I named Sweety Bird who I got at the age of about one year and she's...

    Pigeons like to fly in flocks. My question is.... when they are flying in flocks, is there like a leader that always fly first and lead them places? I haven't let my pigeons fly yet, just curious....
  17. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    Just getting into pigeons, and this morning I woke up to find my first egg! I have no background of the lineage of these two. Male is a homer and hen is a birmingham roller. What color/s would these two birds make?

    Do these two pigeons look like racing pigeons to you guys? I have a feeling that they might just be rock pigeons. The previous owners were selling them in a group of racing pigeons but I never asked if they were racing pigeons. Both of their body masses are big, especially the male (B.L.K)...
