  3. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    So thankful to find this forum! I've learned tons about pigeons in the last 15 hours... Last night I found a white bird sitting next to a closed Dunkin' Donuts (long story). After googling while sitting in my car pondering what to do (I knew I couldn't leave him there) figured out he might be a...
  4. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    Hello, I'm new here (this is my first post). I am asking about the genetics of pied/splash (not grizzle). Is it a single gene? polygenetic? Does it breed fairly true (two pied birds will probably get you babies with white feathers), is it often that you get a baby with white feathers out two...
  5. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    Hello! I'm looking to adopt (or purchase, but I'd prefer to adopt if at all possible) a solitary white pigeon as a companion animal. He or she would be kept indoors. I'll admit that this would be my first experience having a bird, but I'd done quite a bit of research and pigeons seem like...

    I can understand why heavy breeds, or fancy breeds with extra feathering and strange shaped bodies can't fly much...... BUT..... How come some normal shaped light breeds seem to only want to fly to get from A to B, many don't even seem to want to leave the coop / loft.. and will fly straight...

    This friendly guy landed on my porch. He came right to me, i didn't have to chase him. Hes eating and drinking and doing just fine in a cat carrier in my dining room, but I would love to get him home. Emailed secretary at NPA but haven't gotten a response. Should i just let him go? He is...
  11. Pigeons & Doves Wanted & For Sale
    These were bred as show birds. I would like to find a good home for them so Im not asking much for them. Id just like to recoup the cost of keeping them for the year I have cared for them. Asking $10 a piece for four birds, mama, papa, and their two sibs. I want to at least sell them in...

    Found a fancy pigeon in my backyard this morning - appears uninjured but is not flying. Was easy enough to catch - bird is secure with wild seed and water. Bird is all white with a solid black tail. Has a small crest and two leg bands, one band is black with NPA markings on it that appear to...

    I have a bird that has been visiting my feeder daily for the last week. It is banded and the people I contacted said they were not able to trace the numbers. BAND: IPB R 2010 14499 If I can't locate the owner, I thought maybe someone else may want it? I'm afraid a hawk or somethings else...

  17. Pigeons & Doves Wanted & For Sale
    I've got my pigeons, oops babies from when I was distracted and didn't change out eggs diligently (my fault), PLUS RESCUES/REHABS from a Texas wildlife rescue I have taken in doves and pigeons for until our recent move. The numbers have added up (almost 200! :eek: how did that happen?!) so I'm...
  18. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I joined this forum after finding one (and possibly two) white pigeons in a park in Southern California on June 13, 2015. The second pigeon was seen in another part of the park taking a bath and was pretty dirty so it is hard to tell if they are one and the same. Both had the same color plastic...
  19. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    I was wondering why white racing pigeons were white. Is the white a simple recessive mutation where in order to get a white bird they need to have two copies of a recessive gene? Or is the white color line-bred? Meaning is the white trait selected for over many generations until what remains...
