  1. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi all, I have a pet pigeon I rescued a little over a year ago. We enjoy each other's company and I love to let him get his exercise around the house but I hate the poop. I've tried numerous times now to have him wear pigeon pants/diapers and he hates them since he doesn't like being handled. He...

    I have 2 six month old (assumed) males, and we recently upgraded from an apartment to a small townhouse. It is pet friendly so of course, a lot of pet dogs and cats roaming around. before we moved, since the weathers getting better (I live in the UAE), my parents said my birds would live...
  4. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hello! I adopted a moody male pigeon that is unlike any I've had before. At first I kept him beside a cage with one of my other pigeons for a week (usually works for me to help them get better acquainted this way) then let him in said cage. He's been very aggressive since I received him, but...

    Hi. I hope everyone is keeping well. Can someone tell me is it possible to race young birds from the south in say a 250 mile race then as yearlings race them from the North in a 500 mile race and then the following year race them from the South West at a distance of 1000 miles? The birds...

    Hello! I have two pigeons who live in the eave of my current house that I will be moving out of in a few months. I have been feeding them for the last year and a half and spend a lot of time with them. I really adore them and am sad at the thought of not seeing them anymore. I will probably...

    I keep a small flock of (now 12) white homing pigeons as pets. When I let them out to fly they only stay in the air for a 2 or 3 minutes then come back down to land. They will take off again a few times, circle the house about 4 times, then come back down again. Also they don't go very...

    Hello, At what temperature is it too hot to fly the racing pigeons? In SoCal, temperatures reach above 100+ but i want to know when that cutoff point would be. Is 85 degree or 90 degree weather already too hot? Please help.
  9. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    I had two pigeons, hatched April 2018, not sexually mature yet, and they used to live at a different house and were flown, but never taken out for a toss. I moved, and they seemed to have taken to the new loft well, although they were a little shaky on homing when I took them out, the furthest...

    Hello, I am from South Korea, and I adopted a white pigeon last week. So he must be about 5~6 weeks old. Though I have been growing him by myself for only a week, he is pretty tamed that he climbs onto my finger or my shoulder when I stretch my hand into the box where I put his nest...

    I have been trying to find a map on the computer that is easy to use for flight distance. I did not think it would be that hard but everything I have found is very hard. Any suggestion would be wonderful! Thank You!

    Hi All. Fairly new to this. Have 11 homers I got as chics back in September. Have been loft flying them several days a week, always come home except those lost to hawks. Took a 1 mile down the road today to do my first road drop. Took 5 birds, all paired with mates back in the loft. Released...

    Is it possible to dominate when one works 50 hours a week. Liberation point is to the West. I work North Northeast of Loft. I could definitely toss from my work truck on the way to work from time to time. Full disclosure I don't own any bird yet just doing research until I get them. Looking for...

    So, around August I obtained a 2 week old racer squab who we named Marble. I was hoping for a girl, my last pigeon was male (poor boy died of cancer too soon), and I really didn't want to have to worry too much about the aggression a male pigeon displayed. Low and behold, Marble is currently a...

    Hey there! I'm new to the forum and to pigeons so ANY advice is helpful for me in this thread! I'm interning at a nature center that has tons of different animals but a few months back we received a non-releasable pigeon. I'm told that he was placed in with the song birds at first and swiftly...

    Hello pigeon and dove people! I have a chinese spotted dove male. His name is Naps. Naps has been raised by my wife and I since he was around 3-4 days old. We found him in a rosemary hedge after a storm. He has since bonded and fixated on me with wing-flipping things, building nests in my...

    Hello all, Just joined the forums and although I have a lot of questions, many are being answered just by reading what's here. What a wonderful place! I have been pals with Cosmo for about four months now. He's an all-white ring necked dove with black eyes. I'm assuming he is male because the...
  19. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    I have been raising homing pigeons for 1.5 years now and have been extremely frustrated with how things have gone. I originally bought squeakers when I got into the raising homers and needless to say, when I let them out of the loft they never went back in. After that endeavor, I bought adult...
