    I want to give my birds a little something different to add to their regular diet . So far I've been giving them a generic blend of seeds / cracked corn etc I got from previous owner . I read they relish peas .... are these the plain old dried peas you see at the market ? They seem hard as...

    Hi, Yesterday while walking my dogs my brother saw a pigeon being attaked by a cat in a school field. We managed to shoo the cat off(with help from the dogs) and I managed to climb a fence to get to him. He flew a short distance off the ground(about 20cm high) but appears to have lost all his...

    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...

    Every now and then I like to take a handful of safflower seed to my YBs just for the fun of letting them eat from my hand good practice. Having tame birds makes them want to fly harder for you. bad practice. You're spoiling your birds and risk overfeeding them and making them fat and lazy...

    Goodmorning! I wanted to update and have just a few more questions. I bought some small bird universal diet food (for Parakeets, Canaries, Finches, small birds) in the pet section not from the garden center. I hope that this is alright to give. Wal Mart didn't have or I couldn't find wild...
  10. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi, I'm new to this forum and have joined so I can alert you to a pigeon escapee (not mine). It's a lovely bird, about the size of a raven, white with black scattered throughout the feathers. All black tail feathers. Takes off like a B-52 -- leisurely at best but once airborne is capable of...

    I feed my birds a Bay-Mor pigeon feed. They always seem to eat the "peas" first. Are these actually soy beans? I got some non-roasted organic soy beans 2day. Are these OK for pijs?
  14. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I found a pigeon flopping around in the middle of a busy street. I pulled over and put in a box. It is bleeding slightly under its right wing. I don't know if pigeons carry diseases. I don't know if it wing is broken. It will lift it up sometimes. I live in North Dakota I always see the pigeons...

    I work in a drug store (Duane Reade for all the New Yorkers here!) and last night a customer apparently came into our store, wrapped the pigeon in a plastic bag, put it on one of the shelves and left. Another customer found the pigeon and told my manager. My manager brought the pigeon to the...

    I imagine some pigeon fanciers are smokers- It may seem a silly question, but how dangerous is second hand smoke for pet pigeons?
