squeaker

  1. General Discussions
    I hope this is the right place to ask this. If not, I will gladly move it to the appropriate place. I accidentally allowed pigeons (Peggy and Pappy) to lay two eggs on my fifth floor condo balcony. Pancake and Ploppy hatched well over a month ago, but I did not pay close attention to exactly...
  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I have a young pigeon that is a little over a month old. She (or he) is a bit peckish and bites us all the time. She doesn't seem to tame, and even the offer of food doesn't help. She keeps inside of her cage all the time, and won't come out on her own. When she is taken out her only focus is...
  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I've been taking care of an abandoned squeaker I found at the park the other day (approx 1 month old). He was having trouble picking up seeds by himself, so I tried to help him. I also supplemented nutrition via syringe (we have young pigeon formula), which he definitely didn't enjoy. This...
  4. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hello everyone! Grateful to this pigeon community I have a little baby, just getting her feathers... about 10-14 days old. Her leg is splayed - straight out to the side, and slightly at an angle UP towards her wing, with her toes getting stuck in her wing feathers. I have never had a baby...

    I found an injured pigeon and am trying to rehab it. It might not be releasable. When I found it, it's wing was injured and it had feathers pulled out around one eye. So something attacked it, probably a hawk, but it didn't finish it off. It couldn't fly so I took it home with me. It was a...
  6. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hi, I found a squeaker out of nest early about four weeks ago, she was doing well, learned to fly, eating well, etc., and I thought she would be ready for release. But then a or two day ago, she became lethargic, and yesterday or day before stopped eating. Someone suggested it might be high lead...
  7. 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. He was on the sidewalk, I brought him home because I didn't see the parents nearby and there...

    Here is a photo of our poor lost Chloe. We only had her for a couple of months and lost her to circovirus. She was very pretty and loved and will be missed. Am having trouble posting a photo. Will keep trying. Chloe was really beautiful.
  9. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    We have had Chloe (new name finally) for several weeks now, after adopting her from a breeder. She was so scared she wouldn't eat for days. She loves to eat and drink out of my hand now, nibbles my fingers, and is fascinated by everything especially looking at herself in a mirror. She loves...

    Hi. I'm Matt. I'm 7' tall. I'm glad we had our introductions. I checked the sticky threads but they almost all go to dead links or forum posts leading to dead links. I can organize that for you later if you like. Three days ago I opened a closet that my girlfriend's cat was interested in to...

    Good news! Yesterday, Crista and Ymir's eggs hatched, and I have two new baby squeakers. The family is growing, for sure. These are my first squeakers, so wish me luck!
  14. General Discussions
    I've got 4 squeakers that I can't get to go into the air. The go up a few feet, land on the roof and then come back to the loft and stay there. Should I hand toss each one, one at a time? I had a flag and they were pretty much unimpressed with me.

    Does anyone know abou how long you have to wait befor handeling a baby pigeon, and how many days the baby will learn to eat on its own.....how long can you keep a week old baby pigeon away from a parent?:confused:

  18. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    I have a squeaker who is pure black. Not a single white feather on him. His nest mate is a tortoiseshell. Their parents are both tiger grizzle, and mostly white. So is this pure black baby spread? I've never had one turn out to be completely black. Is spread recessive, kind of like recessive...
  19. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi there, Two days ago (Saturday) someone brought in another feral squeaker to me at work. It was starving, dehydrated, lethargic, couldn't stand, had really watery and green poop and was very sleepy. I actually was not sure it would make it. I warmed it up for about half an hour and then fed...
