  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hi so I have a pigeon with pigeon pox. She's had it for two weeks almost and she's quite looking quite lively but the lesions look bigger than they ever have and she's still getting some new ones. How can I know if and when she's getting better?? I'm being very careful with hygiene and...
  2. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    Hello! Rescued this beautiful pigeon we have named "Snowbird." He was all tangled up in human hair and barely surviving when found on a busy sidewalk, but he's doing much better now. He does still have a injury on his one talon (may possibly be something that can be removed, but he gets very...
  3. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello! I rescued this beautiful pigeon I have named "Snowbird" from near certain death. His feet were all tangled in human hair, and he was hobbling along the sidewalk. I freed his feet, of course, and he is doing wonderful, but he still has an injury on the bottom of his one talon. I cannot...
  4. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hey everyone, Wonder if anyone can tell me what the following motion signifies, if anything. Baby puts head down low, straightens legs and humps his back - much like the manoeuvre a cuckoo chick uses to push an egg out of the nest. I first thought this was a pooping posture, but it doesn't...

    Me again, so "Pidge" (yah I know, how original!) who turned out to be a girl, had laid 2 eggs, and as recommended on the previous discussion I had here, I left them. She eventually lost interest and after 21 days, I took them out because she didn't want anything to do with them anymore. I have...

    Howdy -- picked up a pigeon off the street last night. He gave me a little bit of a chase but is/was obviously real messed up. If I had to guess it was a cat that did it. I've got it set up in a little box set under a mesh patio chair that's the best I could put together. It made some poop...

    Heya team, Long time observer, first time poster. My partner and I accidentally rescued a fledgling once upon a time and have been pigeon lovers ever since. We have recently found an injured dove. Definitely a fledgling, potentially 6 weeks old. Has most feathers except under wings. The poor...

Also saw him dropping on his wings when walking on the grass so i caught him and checked on him, he hasn't got any injuries but missing most of his feathers. He...

  12. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Please help! There are about two dozen pigeons that live on my roof —they nest under my solar panels. In all my years, I’ve never encountered a non-adult pigeon. Today however, on the ground, below the nests, was an adolescent pigeon. I thought he needed some encouragement to return, only to...

His poop is dark green and watery. I went to a vet but he wasn’t very responsive, only gave this pigeon an injection...

  16. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi everyone Two days ago we spotted a pigeon in the middle of a road that seemed to not be able to fly. We only noticed him as we passed him on a busy stretch of the road and quickly raced to make our way back to him. He was almost hit by two cars as we were making our way back (one drove...
  17. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi there, I'm an avid pigeon lover who's wanted one as a pet since I found out it was possible! The thing is though, I would much rather provide a home to a rescue pigeon than a captive bred one. I'd prefer a pigeon that had been rescued at a young age as it would be less wild but I also dont...

    Last night I went to take the trash out and there was a pigeon in my driveway. He was just sitting completely still and blinking, he wouldn't even turn his head. I could get extremely close to him but didn't touch him so as to not scare him. After a while he began to walk around and crane his...

    Hi friends! This is not urgent, but if anyone has insight, I'd love to hear. I adopted a feral pigeon from a rescue about a month ago. He/she is estimated to be about 8 months old (we'll be doing a feather test in a few months to determine the sex before adopting a mate). The bird only weighs...
  20. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    A few weeks ago I rescued a feral pigeon that was given to me by a friend who found it as a half grown squab on a busy street in the city. People keep bringing me rescue birds as I seem to have been a parent bird in my previous live and am good at hand rearing and releasing many wild birds...
