  1. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hello, I hesitated to post this discussion here as my health issue isn't exactly an "emergency" - just a benign lipoma. But I didn't see another health forum so I hope it won't be a problem. So the story here is...... one of my ringneck doves was recently attacked by another pet. I rushed her...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    EDIT: I've come to a decision on the matter. I don't seem to be able to delete my post so I guess I'll ask a more open question: Would anyone care to share interesting stories about bonds between birds?
  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello! I'm in an apartment with wood floors. I've usually cleaned them with vinegar, but recently read about adding vegetable oil to the mix to help keep the floors looking shiny. My ringneck dove gets time out of her cage to explore though, and she especially loves to land on the floor. As long...

  5. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    Would anyone be able to take a dove? I live near Seattle WA So a dove landed in our yard.He's very tame. My bird friend says he looks like a ringneck. His tail is a bit ratty at the ends. She said he's probably been a pet or cage bird. He likes being pet. He will put his head down, make coos...

    Hello all I am Scratchy! (if there is an intro sub-forum on here then I could move it accordingly, although I saw none) I am the proud friends of a white shepherd and 11 chickens. I have always wanted a bird as a pet though. (yeah chickens are birds, but I mean a house bird.) I've owned a canary...

    I recently lost my companion bird, a rescued Eurasian collared dove, to a herpesvirus infection. I miss her tremendously as we shared a close bond and as I will not be able to acquire another of the species (unless someone places another nestling on my doorstep!), I'd like to try finding a...

    I am posting this in the hope of gaining some insight into these vocalizations my female Ringneck dove, Sable, has been making. Sable is almost 1 year old (my husband and I have had her since she was approximately 4 months old). She has been making these sounds more frequently lately, however...

    My new ringneck dove is sick, again. I wormed her, and during treatment she decided to moult. Now, before even finishing moulting, she has laid her first egg this am approximately 12 hours ago. She is now sitting puffed up in the nest, eyes half closed, and her head is twitching; not constantly...
  10. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    I posted my story here: http://www.pigeons.biz/forums/f24/aggressive-male-dove-108930.html Basically, I adopted him as a companion for my female, and it didn't work out. The person I adopted him from can't take him back. He's very cute and sweet, just not to my fragile old female. :[
  11. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hey guys, I posted here a while back that I had adopted a female ringneck dove. She was kept alone for many years at her previous home, but it became obvious once I had her that she was lonely. Between her cooing, trying to be friends with my budgies, and what I read here about doves, I...

    EDIT: I called the lady I got the bird from---she said not only does she feed this parakeet feed that has red food coloring, but she also offers cherry stone grit AND fed some fresh veggies last night. She told me that if it doesn't clear up by tomorrow to give her a call and she will take her...

    Hello all. I have a white ringneck dove that was brought to us over a year ago because she/he (haven't figured that out yet, name is Snowflake) was found in a storage barn being attacked by cats and was obviously tame. She(?) is very friendly and healed nicely and has since been our pet. I also...
  14. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    My recently adopted female needs a mate. She was kept single at her previous home for years, and I know that's not good, but now that she's settled in I can see how strangely she acts because of it. She is obsessed with my budgies and flies to them incessantly...she doesn't care about anything...

    Hey guys, I recently adopted a ringneck dove from a lady who needed to rehome her. The lady told me the dove (named "Kojak") was a rescue whom she adopted about eight years ago, and that she is about ten years old. She said that Kojak (and here's the reason for her name) is bald because she...

  18. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello all. I've had my Ringneck Dove for about 4 years now. Back when I found her, she was just coming out of her baby phase. She quickly bonded with me, and now she's obsessed with me lol. As much as I would like to have her out all of the time, I tend to keep her in the cage a lot cos she...

    Hello! Last night one of my cats knocked over one of my ringneck dove's cages. The dove is perfectly fine and just flew around the room (The cats never bother the doves). Anyways, I have some of those sticky fly trap ribbons hanging from the ceiling and it looks like she brushed one with her...

    So I have this beautiful orange pearled ringneck female dove, and lately in our balcony a male mourning dove has shown up cooing at my bird...and she will return the favor by laughing. The mourning dove will just examine the cage from all sides and gently peck at it..and occasionally fly on top...
