    Where can I find leg bands for my babies if (when) they hatch? And, if the parents are hatching them, how old do I put them on, and if I get in the nest to put them on, won't the parent's abandon them?

I have access to many grains, as we have a feed mill and make our own horse,bird, chicken feed etc. I am wondering, does anyone know what...

    If you're looking for a healthy treat for your birds, try lentils. It took my birds a few days to become familiar with the new taste, but now they are as popular as safflower seeds!

    Hi All, I want to know more about feeding Garlic to Pigeons. I have read some mentions here about how they like it. Now, what does this mean in practice? One breaks apart a garlic bulb and peels some and cuts it into bite sized pieces? And they may peck at it as the like? I know raw garlic...

    We were driving today and almost hit a pigeion. He wouldn't get off the road. We looked in the rear view and he almost got hit by several cars so we pulled over. He wouldn't get out of the way of someone walking across the road and the guy kicked him. I'm not sure if he got hit by a car, I...

    There is this oh so cute in my eyes little pigeon at one of the buildings I take care of. I started feeding her about a year ago when I noticed that she would take these prolonged dives in the dumpster looking for food and then show up at my vehicle @ lunch time looking very pathetic. We took...

    What is the best food for feeding feral pigeons? The ones I feed seem to favor bread over anything including seeds. I don't know why but they'll go straight for the bread and leave the seeds for later. They also seem to like sunflower seeds the most. I've read somewhere that pigeons are not...

    Hi My wife and I found a pigeon in our driveway this morning. From looking at Sara's pics I would say he is about 4 weeks old, maybe a little less. Most of his wing feathers are grown but he still has traces of down on top of all his feathers. We think he must have been out on the ground all...
