  1. General Discussions
    I had a pair of pigeons arrive on the 24th of this month. And out of the box I heard a small sneeze from the female. But they had just been shipped across the country so I chalked it up to a dusty box. But I am still hearing an occasional sneeze. It's not very often. And she's also finishing...

    Hi gang, I haven't been on since my White winged dove Peepers past away in October. Now I have a problem with my other dove (domestic white) I will tell you her symptoms and then tell you what the vet has done. Her symptoms are, she can eat just fine but every time she drinks she coughs and...

    Hello, I recently acquired a rescue pigeon, who seemed to be in good health upon my taking it. She is very tame and hand friendly, seemingly raised with humans. She is my first ever pigeon and I love her a lot, but despite my extensive research on pigeon care, I am still a bit clueless...

    my white homer Fortunato makes heavy lungy sounds while flying. He fell from the nestbox as a squab, and fractured his leg. (i am just a hobbiest, i dont race them). when he flys, his lungs seem to be affected. it is not the usual "vuh vuh" wing sound either, it is heavy and at night he sneezes...

    Should I be worried? They seem fine and healthy, but they're just sneezing. Any ideas?

    So I recently adopted one the fancy pigeons that happened through the rehabilitation center I work at. I've only been working with birds for about 3 months, and I'm still learning about them. I brought Matilda home last Thursday, as she had finished her medications and had been given a clean...

    Hi, I've had a feral ringneck dove now for a month. I believe he's young but healthy, or so I though. After a couple days of finding him, he would coo and sing all the time, loved attention and affection and perching on my shoulder wherever I went. For the past 2 days he has been wheezing when...

    Just got my 1st two birds that were born March 13th, 2012. I used this forum, reading members posts to start out right, hopefully. Everything has been perfect, I am sure the birds are ready to be released for the first time today and I noticed one of the birds is sneezing occasionally, every 5...

    I am new to racing pigeons. I just built my loft and got 17 birds from 8 different lofts. I have had them about 2 weeks. I noticed some of the birds seem to be sneezing (pfffff, lips tight together, sound not very loud). I think I have a problem, not sure what. Everything else seems normal...

    I'm a little concerned because DeeDee has sneezed a few times in the past couple of days--maybe 2-3 times a day. I'm not noticing any discharge. The weather is changing, of course, and has been hotter (in the mid to high 80's), and there are a lot of allergens. Are doves affected by allergens...

    I have 2 of my YB that sound like they are sneezing. I have had the birds for a couple of weeks and it seems like just these 2 birds make the sneezing sound. Diagnosis? Cure? Please help!

    I've been watching him sneezing or something that looks like that. Is it normal? It's just a couple of sneezes (not constant) and always at night.

    Hi, I've had a white dove four fours years and she's never been sick until now and I don't know what to do. A couple of weeks ago her eye had, what I thought to be, some staining around it, as she jumps into the cat food when my cats are eating. I washed it off and today it has returned. She...

    My rescue Poppet is doing well, but he has persistent diarrhoea and a few nights ago he started sneezing, had a watery nasal discharge and his breathing was a bit laboured. He responded well to Amoxycilin, and all the symptoms except the diarrhoea have disappeared. I don't know what's causing...

    I just got a ringneck dove last week, first I have noticed her kind of sneezing?? Then today I noticed that her beak looks like it might be overgrown, but not like everybody talks about on the forums. It seems to be growing out on the sides. I am very new to owning a bird and am not sure if I...

    Alright so within the last week I noticed Russel has been sneezing a few times a day. I don't see any discharge and everything looks okay otherwise. He's still as active as he's always been. The sneezes are usually rapid and in sets of two or three. Are there some other symptoms I should be...
