  3. Show Pigeons
    Hi, I'm looking for more information on American giant Rumblers, I've been having a very hard time finding anything! Are they good parents or do they need pumpers? Do they fly well, or are they like giant runts? How is their fertility? Any show breeders in America, I haven't had any luck...
  4. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    My very first homers arrived yesterday. I have 4 pairs, and 2 squeekers. I will probably have lots of little questions over the next bit. So lets start with: when I read 1 and a half ounces per bird, is that by dry measure ( like a measuring cup) or by Weight? The Prisioner breeders, do...
  5. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello all, Just joined the forums and although I have a lot of questions, many are being answered just by reading what's here. What a wonderful place! I have been pals with Cosmo for about four months now. He's an all-white ring necked dove with black eyes. I'm assuming he is male because the...

  7. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    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...

  9. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi all, I just brought home my first pigeon. I was originally planning on getting one in a week or so as I didn't have any food or grit, but I found someone who had to urgently rehome some of her pigeons. Since my cage is pretty much set up, I brought home one of them, with an emergency trip to...

    Hi, my name is Sootlet and I just recently joined the forums and this will be my first post so I hope it's in the right section.

  11. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi all! I'm just about ready to look to adopt a pigeon. However, I have some questions. I'm not the most "bird savvy" person, I like them but don't know much about them. I owned a couple budgies and cockateils when I was younger, but that's about it. So, I bought two cages for the pigeon(s) I...

    So I'm just getting into pigeon keeping and I have a bunch of questions. I figured maybe it would be best to post one thread here rather than like five or six in the seperate forums. First, I rescued a pigeon from my work. It was trying to drink water from a small puddle on the floor and didn't...

  15. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Last year I had planned to get a companion pigeon/dove but was unable to at the time. Now that I am able to, I've been doing my research (binge reading). So I'm planning to have her cage in my room as it's the safest (and quietest) place in the home that still gets sunlight. I have a large...
  16. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi! Ok so, I'm 13 and want to do animal behaviour at Uni. I've got a dog , cat and fish however I really feel having a bird (dove) would be really beneficial and fun. So the most space I can give it is the size of a large metal dog Crate, my dad called a local breeder and we were told that an...

    I have been doing much reading from this site and some YouTube guides but I have a few questions and some conflicting statements I'd like to get some input on. I plan on having a pigeon house pet rather than a homer or racer. Regarding gender, is one more territorial than the other or have...

    I have a 3 yo pigeon approximately. I rescued her when she was downed by a hawk. She is attached to me. She has been laying eggs. I left her egg on her so called nest with the idea she might not lay another but she did. I took the second egg away. I let her lay on the egg for 3 days and took it...
