  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    I just saved a baby pigeon that was attacked by an aggressive pigeon on it's first flight. I know this wasn't a parent, as I am very familiar with my local feral pigeons by feeding them and caring for the random baby with tied up legs from hair & wire. I had been hearing non-stop squeaks for...

    unfortunately it seems you are misinformed of the purpose of pigeons in dog training. It is my standpoint derived from extensive study of dog training practices and conversations with dog trainers and owners that pigeons are used for site training of dogs. The benefit of pigeons over game birds...
  3. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    So, I've found a pigeon egg - I've done a lot of googling this evening and I "candled" the egg and it appears to me as if it is still a viable embryo. I plan on trying to hatch it and raise to release. I've never done this before. I am an animal lover. I've set up a kind of make shift home...

    Hello there! Soo as the title suggests, I'm a new pigeon owner. I just got my little guy (atleast I think it's a male, not too sure) a couple of days ago.

    Hello all... A baby pigeon was brought to us a while ago and we've been looking after it. It must've been 2-3 days old when we first had it (eyes were still shut but opened the next morning) and I've been feeding it Kaytee Exact formula ever since. It's now a month or more old, just weaned...
  6. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    So, we have a pigeon/dove house. They are homing birds released at weddings, etc. Well, the pigeons were picking on a baby for some reason. I came to the "rescue" but I'm not sure I can save him. They were pecking his head but its not a deep wound. He is in the process of preening his feathers...
  7. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    The man who runs the local MFA told me the other day that I could trap some pigeons that lived there. I know I cant fly the ones I catch, but what about the offspring? If given the chance will the offspring fly off as well?
  8. General Discussions
    My friend and I found a new born pigeon, like just about 5 days old, out of the pigeon coop. We need some advice in how to care for it and what to feed it. We really don't want it to die because we've tried saving some other ones and they died because we weren't ready. :( So please, HELP US.
