    I got some liquid vitamin drops from the pet store and was putting them in my doves' seed cups. I was changing the seed daily so the seed wouldn't get gross from having the liquid vitamin added, but I noticed that neither of them was really touching their seed! (They have millet too and I also...

    I've built a tall training perch and I've got a target stick and clicker ready to start training. I occasionally give her millet and veggies in her cage. Strangely enough she will attack her millet spray and eat what's left on the floor in her cage unless she's on her high perch (which then she...

    Hello. I'd like to start training my ringneck dove to perch on my hand when I ask (mainly so I can get her off my furniture without having to poke her, and to get her into her cage at night). What would be good treats to use for positive reinforcement? I heard that they like eggs (boiled and...

    Hi everyone, I was wondering if any of you have found a treat that fancy pigeons go for who are being fed by hand. I would love to feed my birds by hand, but so far have not found anything they pick up on as special. I have tried canned corn, but no luck. Any ideas or proven treats that you know...
  8. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    What can I get to give my homers a little treat here & there? I read somewhere that they like unsalted peanuts, so I grabbed some a wally world yesterday, what else do y'all give? And do I just put it in with their feed (I feed purina pigeon chow checkers)? Or should I put it in a separate feeder?

    My little Tesla is 6 weeks old now and starting to fly a little, he can get on lower tables and counters now and can climb from the floor to my shoulder. I love the little fellow :) I have been looking into ways to keep him busy and entertained. He loves Parsley but spreads it all over his...

    Is there something pigeons in general find absolutely irrestable? Like how cockatiels and most other house birds go nuts for millet. Im trying to coax one of my not yet trained homers to come back to the loft. Hes being very stubborn and has taken up residence in my tree.

    I have a feral pigeon that was rescued last month and given to me. She has splayed legs, which are not fixable. I had her legs taped, for a long time, so I assume she is too old for them to fix. She is young, a few months old. Enough of background on my Poppy, and to my questions. Question one-...

    Well I finally have my pigeons so they will fly to my arm from across the yard when I hold it out but I want to be able to give them better treats that just their old food. So does anyone know of any good treats that are good for pigeons?

    Hey, everyone. I'm brand new to the forum, and brand new to pet Doves as well. A woman was selling her two lovely birds as her child is now old enough to start banging o nthe cage and scaring the birds. I took the pretty things off her hands, and am so excited about them! They're a male and...

    Hi there, I have a homer pigeon and a collard dove, both have been rescued in the past and been too injured to release back into the wild. Everytime I come into the room the pigeon flys down and sits infront of my plate wanting to eat my food, eventually he ends up standing all over it and then...

    I have heard of people giving their pigeons treats occasionally and using treats to help train them, such as spanish peanuts. I was wondering what you all give your birds as treats or if you even do.

    Hi; I happened to see a post by a member who gives his pigeon dried cheddar cheese for a treat, and the bird loves it. I'm still looking for some kind of training treat - Willie apparently doesn't do the peanut thing. Does anyone else give cheese? What kind? I asked my vet, and he didn't...

    Being new and only having the basic guides to go by I was wondering if any of you give your birds treats? Aside from the prescribed, High protein, vet approved diet, do you slip your birds any treats by hand? If so what do you give them?
