  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi all -- Since my post yesterday, I have adopted 2 pigeons. They are a mated pair, about one year old. I have taken care of many feral pigeons, but this is my first adopted pair, and I have some questions about their behavior from experienced pigeon owners. Having not owned them for more...
  4. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    So I went to get myself a pet pigeon (9 months old) and he's really scared of me. He lets me pick him up but occasionally backs away and sometimes he starts trembling (I approach him slowly, of course). Whenever I let him out of the cage he flies towards the glass screen in my house as if he...

    Hey Everyone, Adopted a pair of albino ringneck doves this Saturday. They came from a local wildlife center where they were housed with 8-10 other doves. Anyway, these doves are not really used to human contact from what I can tell. They were put in a space looking out a large window and put...
  6. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi everyone! I adopted a lost racing pigeon about a month ago. I've been spending time with him and trying to hand feed him but it seems like to no avail. He will only eat out of his bowl and wont go near my hand if I offer him food (or at all, he really doesn't like me and gets angry when I...
  7. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Found a poor bird on my roof and rescued it from cat. It is unable to fly away on own, perhaps was still learning to fly. Folks of pigeons usually pass by my area. Tried to spread wheat rice unpolished in its front but its not eating. Running around away from family and me but not fled away. Not...
  8. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    After much consideration I decided to get a dove. I did a lot of research and it seemed a good fit for me. I picked him up Friday the 11th and had him in my lap for a while before I put him in his cage for the first time. Seemed interested in me for a while at first. But after he went into...
  9. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hi friends :) I have had a pigeon for just over a month now with a bad wing, which is now gaining some strength. The trouble is that she won't eat and I've had to hand-feed to get food into her from the start, as she was so, so skinny and needed to put weight on. She is now a good weight...

    Hello you lovely Pigeon lovers :) About a month ago there was a Pigeon outside my door, in the rain, he seemed in a trance, he was soaked and I thought someone would kick him or a cat might get him so I brought him in. Some years ago I witnessed a young man kill a seagull with one rock to the...

    I got yesterday this baby. He is very scared, always trying to run. I put him on electric blanket, gave him an antibiotic injection. I put him with the beak in water and drank some. I imobilised with a cloth and put some seeds in mouth and ate. He can fly a little. Can you tell me what else I...
  13. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    This is my first dove, and first small bird at that. Just got him last night. He's eaten but shown little interest in drinking water, which I assume he will come around about eventually. It'd reassure me to hear about how everyone else's dove acted when first brought in. Right now my concern is...
  14. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I have some questions regarding how I should integrate a new pigeon to my rescued fantail kiwi. I am going to go to a wildlife rehab tomorrow and put him in with a some of their domestic pigeons one at a time to see if he gets along with any of them. What can I expect in terms of them bonding...

  16. Training and Behavior
    Hi, I'm new at owning doves and such and I got two new ones and had them for only a week. One, which is a ringneck dove, hasn't flown anywhere throughout the week, even when I let it out of the cage. I tried encouraging it to fly by putting it in a high area in my room but when it slowly flew...

    I posted a thread about two weeks ago about my new pigeons. They were all over me, would fly onto my arm and shoulder, and lay with me. Now when I go near them, they fly away. They also fear me when I pick them up and they flap chaotically when I hold them. how can I train them to trust me and...

    Today at around four I was loft flying my 13 birds and they circled around my place for about forty minuets, then about four of the older birds successfully trapped into my loft but just when I turned around I heard my flock take to the sky again, each of them flying their separate ways. They...
