    I recently visited my local animal shelter and noticed two very beautiful pigeons that I seriously considered taking in, though I am curious about their breeds. Both were brown-over-white, and seemed very close, almost like mates. However, they were each of different types. The first had a very...

    Several weeks ago I thought Horace might be moulting but only a small scattering of feathers appeared and I thought it might be because it was her first moult, but in the last week the feather loss (big and little) has increased. She is eating and flying and I'm not concerned for health reasons...

    I don't have much experience with birds, but am naturally good with animals and have become a new pigeon Mom. I found this little wild pigeon baby who had apparently recently fallen from his nest while still too young to fly. Boom, he lands in the middle of Times Square and hasn't a clue what...

    I'm the proud new owner of a 3 week old baby white homer pigeon. The breeder said I could feed it bread moistened with milk 2 times a day, but now I've read on this board that milk isn't good for pigeons. Would cream of Wheat softened with water be ok to feed it? Thanks for any help!

    But, I think I will have to take Jake and Jennett back to the feed store where I purchased them. They were both adults when I purchased them, and I hopped they would tame down. However, such is not the case. Also, They are Runt pigeons, so they are the size of small chickens. They crap outside...

The potpourri has definetly been put away and I need to buy stock in the papertowel/tissue industry. He is flying in the house now-just short jaunts but I guess he can't take to the air...

    I've posted here a bit about my pigeons, but still haven't asked this question... Does anybody have any tips for taming captive bred pigeons? I have been handling the babies frequently to try to tame them, but how do I go about taming the adults? They seem to tolerate me just fine, and get...

    Hi, we found a pigeon on our deck whose mother died close by. We thought he was injured somewhere so we brought him in to recoup. Now, He/She won't leave. We put it in a big cage with food and water which it loves. It really enjoys being with us. My son found it and it loves him too. We have...
