  2. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I had gotten my 9 month old rescue a Stuffed Pigeon Plush Doll off of Amazon, as a companion to combat all day cooing, and it worked out pretty well. Here is my question though... "IF" I do eventually get a second pigeon, would he take the real bird as a mate or do I have to "kill" the plush...
  3. General Discussions
    Hello all! I have a female pigeon, and I've had her for about 2 and a half years. She stays in a medium-sized dog crate with perches/ledges to hop on and off from, and I let her out frequently throughout the day to make sure she gets socialization/exercise. But lately I've been wondering if...

    I have a cute pigeon who is rather energetic. He is currently living in this little porch that would normally fit about 2 people. Lots of space for him to run around and fly a bit (it's quite tall of an environment), but I feel like he needs some stuff to play with since my family is quite busy...
  5. Small Talk
    My little rescue, Chupchup, is still with me. Still having trouble flying properly (sometimes I see him/her AIMING for a surface and stops flying about 20 cm before and ends up on the floor). But getting better. I guess this is a long-haul pet now. She has beautiful soft, silky plumage, with one...

    Hey guys! Well, Igg Salad Samwich AKA Samwich is fibally in full remission! Yay! See my other post if you wonder about the sad story.. He is a DNA male of 7 months old now. Scruffy, full of pin feathers and with a two years old child attitude :D Well now. From what i have heard from other dove...

    Hi everyone! I'm new to the forum, so please let me know if I'm doing something wrong--I don't mean to if I am! My husband works at a wildlife rehab center in NYC, and through that job we've both gotten involved with dove and pigeon care. Right now we have one permanent resident, a very pale...
  8. Training and Behavior
    I've had my first pet pigeon for about 5 months. I'm currently trying to find ways to stimulate her mentally. Dogs and cats can have puzzle feeders and toys that can occupy their minds while they are home alone and keep them healthy and sharp. I want to find toys or puzzles that I can give to...

    Experienced dove owners are probably aware of this but as a novice dove owner, I thought I would share. mirror toys seem like the most common and often cheaper variety of toys you could find in a pet shop. For almost as long as I have had Dakota, she's had one of those activitoy mirror/bell...
  10. Products and Equipment
    As promised earlier in a thread, I finally completed instructions for a toy I designed a few years ago. Its called The peck and Yank dove toy. I designed the toy seeing as there are a lack of toys for pet doves. Pigeons can possibly enjoy the toy as well but since I really never had a pigeon...

    Just wanted to share this artwork my pet pigeon did :) I let him go 'freestyle' on it so it is all his own creation. Maybe not quite a masterpiece but proudly displayed on my wall nevertheless!
  12. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello all! I read somewhere (may have been here) that a stuffed animal could be a good thing for a bird without a mate. So I bought Zane a little stuffed monkey. I haven't taken the time yet to really check it out and make sure it's safe so right now it's sitting right outside his cage...

    My on-the-mend pigeon i found outside is now safely housed in a large cage. Hes going to be permanently wobbly, which effects his flight. Now comes toy time. He's basically grounded, but I did put a low lying branch as a perch. Minus swings and all that high level stuff, what could I give him to...
  14. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    I have read about toys for pigeons, but what about doves? So far mine hasn't seemed very interested in playing with anything other tissues (pecking at them). I think I might go to Petco tomorrow and look for some real bird toys that might interest her.
  15. Archive - Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi. I have a pet pigeon in a LARGE cage. He gets several hours of flight time a day, but sometimes, when he's back in the cage, he seems very antsy and bored. He makes a lot of noise and walks in circles. I have dogs and a cat, so I can't let him out all day. (the cat actually loves the...
  16. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    Hey there guys! I recently adopted some pigeons from my local wildlife pound. One of them (a turkish takla) had been found injured, wing partially eaten - bone could be seen - although it looks nicely healed, feathers have grown over it nicely. He just can't spread the wing fully be he has some...
