    :confused: Hi all, My daughter has two pigeons who have had a few eggs that they didn't look after, but the latest one hatched today. We were going to let the parents raise the chick but when Bridey went out to check on them, the father was standing on the babys head and the baby was cold. :(...

    Just a little update in the never-ending saga of the destruction of my life by the Mighty PoopZilla: any shred of self-respect I still posess is being systematically demolished by PoopZilla's sex-drive as it kicks into high gear in what must be his sixth or seventh month of existence. This bird...

    Disclaimer: These posts were mostly sort of cut and pasted from e-mails I had sent to someone who shall remain nameless but may have a pigeon named Mr. Squeaks. As such they were written in various tenses depending on the actual chronology of the events, and also on any possible whim I might...

    When I watered and fed day before yesterday I looked for each pij as I do in the mornings, and couldn't find little Snowflake the white dove in the small aviary. Heart in my boots, I found her (alive!) under the table in a basket, where a pigeon had cornered her and pulled out all of her...

  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I got a call from a woman in Melbourne Florida who found a pure white racing pigeon that once belonged to me. I'd like to get it back and place in a new loft or keep it myself. I think this one was given away or lent to someone and was lost. How it got all the way to Florida is a mystery. But I...

    This may be a stupid question, but I have a squab, recovering well from "hip surgery" to correct a severely misaligned leg...he spent so much time in confined spaces during treatment and recovery that the tips of his wings were damaged. He is much better and living in the aviary but can only fly...

    Hi everyone, I'm a new comer to Pigeon-talk (Pigeons in general :) ) I've become "hooked" since a visitor showed up in my yard on Sept. 5. She showed up at our house in the beginning of September. Still comes around once or twice a day to feed and drink with the variety of wildlife I have out...

    Yesterday I brought home my first pet doves. I believe these are ringneck doves, pure white wedding birds. Of course, they are untrained, unbanded, and pretty much just...pretty. They aren't tame. They also aren't in their own aviary yet. I have so much to do, and the chickens are so upset...
  12. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I work in a maximum security facility and am a member of FAUNA. Knowing this some prisoners have handed me a baby pigeon which has fallen out of its nest. I don’t have a lot of experience with birds. I have cared for a few in the past, but I mainly care for marsupials (I have taught baby...

    Hi everyone, I hope you can help me help a pigeon! I found an injured pigeon today and brought it home. I thought at irst it was a broken leg, but upon closer inspection, it's actually thread looped tightly around his foot. The thread had become tangled so tight that he has lost a claw, I don't...

    Hi all, I took Paddy in to live with my flock early July after his life outside the loft didn't go so well. He is a former racing pigeon from Dublin who got lost and ended up at the vets close to death. He was found to be severely emaciated, had a fracture of the right leg and had wounds on...

    Hi :) I got a call from my sister today. A couple young girls in the neighborhood found an injured bird. It was by the side of the road, so probably hit by a car. This is a scary one for me... Wings seem fine, and she is eating well- No visible bleeding, but cocks her head to the side and walks...
