  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello everyone! Thank you for taking the time to read this. I am an experienced (ex) parrot owner and although some things are the same as far as care goes other things are very different. So, I need help. I recently rescued a Rock Dove a block away from our flat. On Sunday we took her to the...

    I would like to compare opinions about what breed of pigeon seems to be most comfortable with human contact. A breed that is easy to tame.
  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi, i recently put up a post about my agressive male pige and people advised me to get him a mate, wich i have, about 5 days ago i picked up a lovely fantail dove who is a couple of months older than him. The breeder told me that his birds were tame but i guess only to him, i let her relax in...
  4. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hey! This is November-X-Scourge, if you remember me. I've still been rescuing pigeons all the time. My friend found a squabby in the garbage, and raised him (using this forum). He's completely tame. His name is Cooper. His company is lovely, but it's his time to be free. How should I prep him to...
  5. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I have two, one month old Classic Oriental Frills and they're pretty terrified of me right now. They're letting me get closer to them without running, but they're definitely not friendly yet. I've only had them for two days and they were shipped to me. They're also not eating or drinking on...

  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hi everyone, This is my first post on this wonderful forum, so please be understanding with my lack of knowledge regarding etiquette and my poor English. I decided to ask for advice regarding a baby pigeon that I rescued about a month ago. This is the story short. About two months ago, I...
  9. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hi, I am new to this forum, so my apologies if I should be in the wrong place, but we've been adopted by a feral/escaped tame/friendly pigeon, or maybe it is a dove. Looks like a Rock Dove, judging from our bird guide. See attachment for photo. It's been around for more than a week now. It...

    We have a male, imprinted Woodie who we would like to find a home for. He was originally rescued as had been found (or we suspect, taken from the nest) as a young squab and hand reared as a pet by a teenager. once fully fledged he was kept in a small wire cage at night (breaking all his tail...

    Hello all, I am thinking of getting a pigeon. I will be getting a white crowned pigeon (a popular Caribbean pigeon, don't worry i live there so no change in environment) Will a pigeon ever be able to be tame enough for me to let the cage door open while he is outside...

    Any one raised or is raising a pigeon since it was a squab? I have a baby satinettes that are about a week to two old, and I wanted to turn it into a house pet. Train it to fly to me and what not. Any tips, advice or videos?

    I have homing pigeons. I built a nice loft and aviary. I have 6 birds, bought 9 months ago and two babies born about 2 months ago. How do you all tame your birds? I have tried many ways to get them to eat from my hand. The babies are a little better but they all look so nervous and stressed if I...
  15. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi there, I have one female pigeon (who just laid her first egg yesterday!) who absolutely loves my male partner but does not particularly like me (female). She lives inside with lots of trips outside for vit D etc. She used to be very cuddly and friendly to both of us a a young bird and even...
  16. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    Hello everyone, though this is my first post here I have been lurking these forums on occasion over the years. Alas, now I have a reason to post here. Due to uncontrollable circumstances I just cannot provide these birds with the attention they need and deserve. As much as I would like to...

    recently I got some fantail from a famous breeder, these are very big and show quality birds. however I notice they are kinda different from my other fantail. first, they are very tame, which is a good thing. meanwhile, they seems do not show much interests to the opposite sex, most of them...
  18. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    So, I have quite a few questions regarding pigeons, and these question revolve around a specific circumstance. I'm getting married, and I wanted to do a dove release. But I can't afford it, and there's no one in my area who does it anyway. So. There is a pair - obviously mates - of wild pure...
  19. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    Well, it's been 3 months now, and as much as I hate to accept it, I'm moving and I won't be able to give Dime the care he deserves. If you can provide a great, loving home for a tame, personable pigeon, please consider adopting him! I will miss him terribly :( Here is a little information...
