  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    **Title is supposed to say hand raising. Auto-correct >_> I raise homing pigeons and somehow the pen got opened while I was gone. My adults all went out for a good fly. The reason I don't let them do this is because, predictably, one of the females never came back. I reasonably assume a hawk...

    I'm curious if anybody has ever experienced this before. In my 10+ years of having pigeons as a hobby, I have never seen this happen. First off, I have an old cock bird (Leon). He is a handsome guy. So handsome, in fact, that he has three mates. One of his mates (Halogen) laid a clutch; these...

  14. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi everyone! I desperately need some advice. We were nice enough to allow feral pigeons to roost and hatch on one balcony of our apartment since we had no idea of the mess, dirt, and poop they'd create. Our mistake, but oh well, that's life. I've waited for the squabs to be old enough to fly...
