Hello: I am new to this pigeon hobby-a "self-retired" racing pigeon adopted our family in the last few months, and he is now fed on corn and will need to be moved when we buy a house in a couple of weeks-he was injured (tore a claw off) last week, but luckily he is still eating and flying and is...
Hello forum users.
Please excuse me as i have absolutely no experience of pigeons, racing or otherwise. For about the last 10 years i have had an idea for a childrens book featuring racing/homing pigeons. But due to working full time it has never got past the thinking stage. But now, we have had...

Heck no, I don't think you're a rat. That was just in the movie. "I think people should mate for life, like pigeons."
Is it taboo to use old AU bands as extras. I decided to join a racing club this this year although I have had homers off and on through out the years I have never raced. A friend gave me some good birds . I have 4 pairs to start with . I bought 20 bands to start with, but I have about 20 "92"...
I got a call today that there is an article in the January 28, 2008 issue of
Sports Illustrated written by Chris Ballard. As I read a few lines into the article, it became very apparent that the writer had no interest or love for pigeons.
From my perspective, the article was a hachet job on...

I know a lovely person named Jen, who has brought me some of her rescues in the past. She rescues various pijies, some who were ill or are disabled, in her apartment. The six that she brought me were in excellent health, happy, well-adjusted pigeons who are thriving and obviously very well...
Hi I am not racing yet but i hope to eventually. I was wondering if you have to be in a club to race? What you need to race? Also Where you can find out about pigeon races that are going to happen? Thanks in advance for your answers.
Well .. I've been keeping a secret .. haven't even taken pictures .. was waiting until banding day ..
Two of my SENIOR rescued racing pigeons hatched a baby this past Tuesday (Nov. 27). There were two eggs, but the second egg didn't hatch. The parents of the baby are a 1993 SLO bird (the Mom)...
Hi Just wondering if there is anybody who know about Grain Farmers in Mississauga/GTA area. Buying grain from walmart is getting expensive, so I thought that may be buying directly from a farmer or in bulk would be cheaper.
If no farmer any other suggestions.

It's as if they're homing in on her.
For the third time in a year, an exhausted racing pigeon fell to earth in Cheryl Mosco's Lawrenceville front yard well...
I have a very concerned wife. She thinks I have lost mind with my new interest in pigeons. I came home with three 3 week babies. Now she has worries about the family getting bird flu or other avian diseases. She (and I ) has thought of wild pigeons as "nasty" birds and carriers of multiple...
Ok...I've had my pet pigeons long enough now to know that I am hooked on pigeons & will never return to being pigeonless. And I think that sometime in the next year or 3 I might like to get more "serious" and try a performance breed in addition to my beloved mishmash of pet birds.
But I want...
We found a pigeon in our backyard that needs help. He has bloody droppings and is barfing up seed. He was so docile that my husband was able to walk right up to him and pick him up and put him in a box with no effort. He is not resisting, AT ALL.
This pigeon is banded, and when I located the...
