    Today my mom found a baby pigeon and we decide to help it. We put it in a box with a old shirt to keep it warm and a little water dish but we don't know what to feed it or how old is it. Please help? She/He fell out of the tree next to our backyard and is scared :(

    It has been several months, since we found Spock. I will post some new pics. We built him an aviary outside. We can now leave the door open and he comes and goes from his house. He loves my husband and sits on his shoulder or head when ever he is outside. He never leaves our yard and enjoys...

    Have you ever used a mirror to identify the sex of the pigeon? Does it work? I just read that if you show a male pigeon a mirror, he will attack it. But a female will ignore it. That makes me nervous, because the pij that I thought was female (and Im hoping is female!) just attacked a...
