    I don't know if anyone will be able to help me or refer me to someone that can. A couple of months ago I started feeding wild pigeons on my balcony (I stay in an apartment on the 2nd floor and there's a Church next to me with trees where they stay). They got so used to me feeding them that I'm...

    Hi there i have three white doves. When they were young i would let them out and they would just hang around my roof and nearby. Then one day they flew off and didnt come back for 7 hours.

    It's very annoying :( . I got a pair of nesting pigeon doves on my balcony and every so often one of them perches high or low and starts up with these ugly annoying growling noises. And for way more than a few minutes too. While growling it seems to be hunched over a little and blowing air into...

    Feral pigeons are the pigeons we find in the streets around houses etc. right? How do you then obtain "feral" pigeons for pets? Is it not illegal or against the national wildlife assoc. to catch and keep wild animals? I think the "feral" pigeons are beautiful, and would love one for a pet...
