    Hi everyone, Was just wondering...kind of an academic question... Does anyone now whether Mourning Doves, and Ring Neck Doves, can be disposed to pair up to produce viable offspring? If say, a Ring Neck Hen and a Mourning Dove male were to find eachother in the same surrounds and felt the...

    Hello, I am madanesor, I am new here, and just looking into pigeons as pets. I am not sure though- first off, are they freindly, affectionate? Do they like to sit on you? Or are they more to watch, and not interact with? If you buy one, how do you teach it to come back home if you let it out...

    Well, Pidgey's being mean to me and making me post a thread... :rolleyes: Dumpty has something wrong with his feathers and he's plucking them out on his breast. 4 of all of the feathers that he's pulled out had what I at first thought were worms inside the quill. It wasn't a worm, just a...

    I noticed this ever since I got Roger that every once and awhile he would sneeze repeatly ? It's not constant but once a day, I noted when I was pigeon observing in the park some would do it too.... Is this more like we do when we blow our noses ? Just to clear out the breathing passage ?

    It as been four years that I enjoy online friends here. But this morning, I met a member who is also in Montréal! Auroraborealis was present for my breakfast with the feral pigeons I feed in a park every morning. I was so happy to meet her, for real :) We also went home and she met Tigeon and...

    Hi Everyone couldn't stay away. I am in Australia currently and my Mum in law needs some advice. She has a 1 year old Parakeet and he is healthy and as happy as ever but she is concerned about the fact that this little guy does too much piddling. Now I would say take the calcium away and...

    I've had some problems with Canker last summer and now again this summer in the Wild Flock of Mourning Doves who visit my backyard feeders. To make a long story short, I have quite a few die last summer. I took one deceased bird to my vet and they diagnosed aspiration as the cause of death and...

    In addition to our 80+ pigeons we have six ring-neck doves, five of which are rescues, one we raised. Three of them I adopted just a month ago. I came downstairs to make dinner around 6:00 the other night, looked out the sliding glass door to the patio and saw (so I thought) one of my pied...

    overall do Pigeons cost much to look after as pets? or are they quite cheap with the food being simple seeds, peanuts and water if there is a big cost, it must go towards a loft, as they can be costly but what about the other things such as pigeon toys (treats) and vets (healthcare)...

    Hello All, I'm new to doves, but I have noticed that my dove's droppings have changed. They used to be small spheres. But now they look like long, thin strands of spaghetti! Each dropping is one long, single strand. The color is a little greener, but not much. My dove is a little...
