    Does anyone have any advice for weaning a young dove onto seeds who does NOT want to be weaned? :rolleyes: Fijit the Collared dove is a month old now, and is even less interested in seeds than he was 2 weeks ago! I have been trying to get him to eat a seed mix that has various small finch seeds...

    Fij the dove will be 14 days old at the end of this week. Is it necessary for me to start mixing seeds into his formula (Kaytee Exact), or should I just wait until he is fledged and ready to start eating seeds on his own?

    I eat a lot of pomegranites....and I discovered they are huge fun to share with the pigeons and the little birds outside. Slice one in half and place on a small spike bird feeder. The little guys love digging out the seeds and it's pretty funny. Your whole yard will be filled with little red...

    I tried a search. Uhg! I caught a pij last night that has been hanging out on the edge of my roof for two days. I put him in a carrier and noticed one of his droppings looked firm but has seed in it. I did not have any food in there at the time. He is eating and drinking today but looks to...
