  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    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...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    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...
  3. 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...
  4. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi there! We're in east London, UK. We found this sweetheart while doing a socially distant queue (there are upsides!) I noticed her squeaking and she was hiding on the floor in a doorway very scared, with a slight limp wing (she had full movement but it was hanging very low). A man in the...
  5. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello everyone ! I'm Eva, I live in Prague, and last week we realised that the mama pigeon nesting in my courtyard hadn't come back to feed her babies at all ; my husband stood by the window to spy on the nest and no bird came to see the little ones. After 12h of no parent showing up to feed...

    Hi! Around 7 weeks ago I found a hurt pigeon at my Winodw. I took him in and took care of his wound. He’s been healed and is doing fine now. He’s also very playful. But I’ve been wondering if I should set him free(I’d like to keep him since I’ve got very attached to him, though) because he keeps...

    Hi, Pigeon regularly comes to my garden to eat out of a dish of seeds and some scattered on the patio floor too. However he has a broken beak, it has been like this for months, I saw him once then couldn't find him, he didn't come back, 2 months later he is back every day trying to eat. He...
  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi Looking for advice about a fledgling pigeon I picked up last night in the garden. He looks just like an adult but smaller. He must have flown here with a flock but after all the pigeons left he was still here and sleeping on my garden path. I left him out until about 7.30pm and we managed...
  9. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello all. I have a couple questions regarding our self-rescue, Marigold. I previously wrote of her arrival here https://www.pigeons.biz/forums/f5/our-newest-family-member-117654.html 1) Is there a way to determine the age of a pigeon? just wondering how old she may be. 2) We noticed that...

    Hello I feed city pigeons daily. This pigeon is well known visitor of my place. (His name is Khokhoba) I first noticed hump on its back two days ago and I think it has gotten bigger since that. He eats normally. I hand feed him and his partner most of the time. (please see image below) The...

    Hello everyone, I live in Manhattan and a couple of weeks ago a pigeon couple built a next on a windowsill across from our window and reared one baby pigeon! It's been wonderful to watch and has been around 3 weeks now and the baby has visible gray colored feathers. I had noticed that the...
  12. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    This pigeon has been hanging around our house for a few days. It's stayed in the same area and it's been a hot few days with no rain, so we're worried it is dehydrated and/or hungry. I've googled and it looks like he's not very old? We live in a very rural area so there are a lot of foxes that...

    Hi! It is my first post in this forum, although I was reading these pages a lot in the last year. Last summer I found a lost baby pigeon, of the common grey city variety, and me and my boyfriend decided to raise it. And I have to tell you, he was the best. Joe was a smart and curious bird and I...

    Please give advice! Here's the situation: A week ago, my dad was leaving the house and found a white dove in the alley way! it had a big chunk of feathers ripped from its back and it cant use one of its feet.

  15. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi, i have a pet pigeon that me and my partner rescued when he was a few weeks old wandering outside in the road, but now he is so agressive with my other half (and me also but not as much). I will try to explain as much as i can about his upbringing. He was lovely and cuddly at first with the...
  16. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi, I rescued a young pigeon, something like 3 weeks ago ? He must have been something like 1 months and a half to 2 months, since he still had yellow fuzz. I don't know if i should release him one day or if he's too imprinted. He'll sometimes sit on my shoulder, but he runs away from me and...
  17. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi! Granted it's only been about a day since we (two adults) adopted him. He had been living in an adoption center for a couple of months, which mostly cares for cats and dogs; I was told they didn't have avian experts. Before that, he was picked up on the street because it was apparent he had...

  20. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    The male of my pair of ringneck doves died last month, and the surviving female is lonely. (Our neighbor's cat got in and got him, but I caught the cat before the female could be hurt. I've made sure this can't happen again.) I'm hoping to find a new companion for her. She's a rescue and not...
