    To make the story short... 3 pigeons came home with 5 of my pigeons after i tossed them approximately 10 miles north of my house.

    I recently rescued a pigeon that was being attacked by others. I called him bonk because he had a tendency to fly into the windows of the cinema. I live in Texas. I began researching his symptoms and they seem to match the paramyxovirus, but I'm extremely worried. I've read he can be pulled...

    Hi All, in need of some help: Walking home today there was a pigeon hanging around on the sidewalk. She actually looked okay, but something seemed wrong. As I watched, it became apparent that she couldn't fly. She was pecking around okay, but if spooked could only fly a few feet. I noticed that...

    I feed my birds a Bay-Mor pigeon feed. They always seem to eat the "peas" first. Are these actually soy beans? I got some non-roasted organic soy beans 2day. Are these OK for pijs?
