    Hello, A city pigeon started coming to my balcony with her male mate a couple of months ago. I was feeding them regularly and everything was okay untill the female came with a string tied between her feet making her unable to walk. This happened about a week ago. The pigeon was becoming weaker...

    Hello everyone, I've had my Sverdlovsk blue-grey mottle-headed for about a month now. I was told before I adopted her that she had an unusual coo, a low woo-woo-woo (that sometimes trills up an octave into what sounds like an alarm?). Lately, I've noticed that in her sleep, she makes the typical...
  3. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello all! I found a young pigeon three days ago. He (or she) seems to be a fledgling, maybe about a month old, I'm not sure, he still squeaks and doesn't seem to have grown all his adult feathers yet.

    So I'm really wondering if I ever should have gotten into pet pigeons. Is everybody else's experience just a bottomless well of tragedy? My last two 'pretty pigeons' - the ones from the first batch of 9 - let their chick die last night. They've been good parents. They laid two eggs. I added...

    Hi all, We found Talula, an adult pigeon just sleeping & unresponsive with only energy enough to stand. There are no apparent fractures or any evidence of trauma nor broken anything. I couldn't leave her out in that parking lot besides our apt building as she would've been struck by a car...

    My little diamond dove, Honeydew, seems to have night terrors. Anywhere from between two to five times a night, she frantically flutters around in the cage for about ten seconds. Does anyone know what could be causing this? It doesn't bother me, sleepwise; but I do worry about her hurting...
