Got some distilled water from Walmart, it's called Sam's.
Read the ingredients and it says minerals have been added. I called the pet store and they said should be alright. I don't like to give my bird anything but tap water. Should I filter out the minerals? Maybe she won't drink if it's not...
So I found a pigeon yesterday (I live in a big city in Europe). I am a very experienced (ex) parrot owner so some things are similar but I have zero experience with pigeons. I did a lot of research but need guidance.
I'm not sure if she was in shock when I found her but she's eating well...
Hello All, I just joined this forum. I have been all over google and found many different ideas about providing water, but the one thing I can not find if pigeons will use the lilttle watering nipples that chikens will use.
I will enjoy using this forum.
Hi gang, I haven't been on since my White winged dove Peepers past away in October. Now I have a problem with my other dove (domestic white) I will tell you her symptoms and then tell you what the vet has done.
Her symptoms are, she can eat just fine but every time she drinks she coughs and...
I'm from Sri Lanka.
I found a tamed (pet pigieon) black pigeon. (I guess it is tamed because there is a metal nut in his leg.
Also I have doubt whether owner has cut his feathers to avoid flying away. I heard some people do this.)
I found it a muddy water pit sorrounded by crows in a...
Planning on just using water from water bottles, but that can get costly. Is it safe to use fish tank water dechlorinator?

I have had a rescue pigeon now for about 6 months. Broken wing. We have taken him to the vet a few months ago, got all the medicines, all clear, but recently he has begun to have very watery poops.
Can anyone give me some help on why and possible treatments?
I was on a walk and found a crow perched on a window sill. As I approached the crow did not run away or even withdraw from my hand when I extended it and almost touched her [I'm going to speak as if I know the crow is a girl, even though of course I don't]. She let me put my shirt over...
Changing Type of Water Dishes (need help)
I had been giving my homing pigeons water from a simple plastic large watering dish (Similar to the bottom of a very large plant bowl with NO BOWL). So just a large shallow dish. This was because I only had one way to keep the water from...
There was a small bowl of water near the pigeon. he was acting curious as i was making his formula. He is approx 14 days old and growing his feathers. He dipped his beak into the water and then shook his head and blew some of the water out of his nostrils. I took a towel and dried off his beak...
I have about 20 adult fantails and a few chicks in a loft, I found recently they drink a lot water, they drink almost 3 liter of water every day. Is it too much?
I know it is not good sign if the birds drink a lot. they look healthy and active, and I treated them on canker recently.
It would appear my birds avoid the bath. I have put a bird bath in their large cage, its an old ice cream tub, and filled it up about 2" with water.
I have seen them drink from it, and often poop in it but have never seen anything to suggest they splash in it.
Is that normal?
young pigeon need some advice
I work at a trucking company where the dock seems to be a nesting area for pigeons. We had some guys in to fix the heaters a few days ago and instead of moving the little guys that were up on top of the heater he killed on and pushed the other off. My...
What does everyone use to supply water to your homers? My method is proving to be ineffective, it's just a bowl that is covered with a hole in the side, it's to small and they drink it all really fast.
