  1. General Discussions
    I was just wondering what the normal sleeping habits for a pigeon are. My Pidgey seems to really like sleeping when I'm close (for example he sleeps on my desk when I'm doing schoolwork in the evening. But he prefers to sit down, put his beak in his crop and puff those feathers a little. He...

    Hi there, I discovered your forum all the way from South Africa :) I have some questions - please help where possible. We found a very young (rock pigeon?) outside this morning after a heavy storm last night. I have gone to the pet store and picked up the correct food; the baby is being kept...

    When I first got my King Pigeon I had converted more than half a bedroom to be his indoor aviary. It's 7 feet in height, 6.5 feet wide, about 5 feet deep so.. for one bird, that is plenty of room. It was asked of me by my in-laws that I also have a cage. For a while, I would put him in the...

    I've introduced a new pair into my loft, while there isn't too much fighting when I'm watching, the problem is at night and early morning. Between 23 h00 and 4:am I can hear cocks making coooick sounds against each other. If this normal or I should separate the couples ?

    I brought home Dakota, an 11wk old ringneck dove on Feb 15th. Her cage has a red "privacy blanket" which for most of the day is draped on top of the cage, against the back wall, and on one of the sides facing a hallway. At 10pm I turn off the living room tv and some of the lamps, and cover her...

    Kunju is a little laughing dove rescued from my cats and then developed PMV symptoms. As a result of this, he can't fly normal to the front like supposed to. Rather up in the air and to the back without any control where he wants to go. I'm keeping him in his own cage about 1 x 1.5 m and the...

    Hello, My pigeon Philly has been sitting / lying down a lot lately (in the position pigeons commonly sit down when they're sleeping or nesting). I've had him for about three years (he was found with a broken wing that rendered him non-releasable) and he lives with me in our strictly indoor...

    Hi all, I just noticed my pigeon Bird-Bird doing something that looked like repeated swallowing while he is sleeping. He wasn't opening his beak wide or anything -his throat was just moving slightly (a bit like if he were chewing or inflating it). Does anyone know if this is normal? Thanks...

    Yesterday I started the conversion of my kids' abandoned playhouse into a loft. It is going to have four sections: Roller Breeding Area, YB Roller Area, Homer Breeding Area & Homer Flight area. There is a flight-pen/aviary on the front of each of the breeding areas converted from the "front...

    When it's Coalie's bedtime, he goes into a big basket with a tall handle. A towel is draped over the handle so he calms down sooner, with the lights out. Rick went to bed, and just before he fell asleep he mentioned that Coalie might be thirsty. A while later, I remembered this, and thought I...

    Hi guys, Re-Peeper, orphaned as a fledgling, is not doing so well. After a course of Spartrix last week and a dose of Moxydectin Plus on Monday (thanks Feefo!) she seemed to be coming along quite well. Not so today. She's not eating on her own, but pecking at seeds then dropping them. She...
