    Recently I rescued pigeon near my home. It was fallen to water pit and surrounded by crows. He was very weak then. I took it home and put into cage to protect from cats. Now he is little OK. I have a doubt regarding how to feed them. I put seeds in his cage all the time. In the morning I put...
  3. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, I'm from Sri Lanka. I found a tamed (pet pigieon) black pigeon. (I guess it is tamed because there is a metal nut in his leg. Also I have doubt whether owner has cut his feathers to avoid flying away. I heard some people do this.) I found it a muddy water pit sorrounded by crows in a...

    So we have had Lois for about three months. We rescued her and made her our office mascot. We keep her in a large cage indoors and have an outdoor enclosed area that we put her in daily for sunshine and fresh air. Here is the problem. We can get her into the outdoor gazebo just fine but...
  8. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi I’m looking for some advice. I was walking home today and a group of youths were standing outside a shop joking about kicking a young pigeon that was standing next to them. I didn’t want to say anything as I walked past as I thought they were joking and that if I told them off it would...

    Hi, I rescued a two-week old pigeon, and he is now about 5 weeks old. He has been living in my kitchen, and pooping on everything! By this age he has lost all of his yellow feathers,eats on his own, and flies around the house. I tried letting him outside on the balcony today, but he flew right...

  12. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi all, About 9.00pm last night, I came across what looks like to me (but I am no bird expert!) a young pigeon, he was wandering in the road with one wing down, we coaxed him off the road but he clearly wasn't right, he didn't fly off and let us go right up to him. I didn't want a cat to catch...

  14. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    One week ago, I had no idea how much a pigeon would capture my heart. On Monday, I glanced out my back doors and saw a pigeon looking in at me. I feed the local wild birds and knew right away that we don't get pigeons in our backyard. When I went outside for a closer look, I saw that it had...

    I have 1 pigeon and a bunch of chickens. I have been leaving my chickens in their coop for now so they don't hurt the pigeon. 1-would it be safe to put the pigeon in with the chickens especially with winter coming about. 2-would my chickens hurt the pigeon? 3-should I leave them separate?

    Normal Molting? Phoebe our rescued pigeon who had surgery last year for xanthomatosis is molting. Is this a normal time of year for that in Central CA USA? I always worry when she molts because she looks ratty and sits hunched over. ? Thanks

    About two months ago we found a young pigeon who was unable to fly and had a pretty scraped up head. We put it in a bird cage and it has recovered wonderfully. It is flapping around a lot in the cage which I assume is an indication of it being of age and condition to attempt to fly...

    Ten days ago I discovered a baby feral pigeon in our barn that had fallen out of its nest. He was a riot, literally chasing me and my daughter all over the barn, squawking all the way! He appeared to be about 2, possibly 3, weeks old. I had absolutely no experience with pigeons but did lots...

    I rescued my pigeon Petey in May when I found him abandoned behind my work. It appeared his parents had been killed by a dumpster. I am not sure how old he was at the time or if he really is a "he", but he was still yellow and fairly big. He has grown into a handsome bird and I love him to...
