    Hi Everyone, A while ago we adopted a baby pigeon and he is now I think about 7 weeks old. I *think* he was about 10-14 days old when we found him. Anyway, today it seems he lost the plot :( He has always never minded me handling him and he is allowed to fly around the house for a while...

    Hi, I just got a new young pigeon last weekend. Not sure of the gender yet. But it is about two months old, not full grown. I just wondered how long it take these birds to get use to me and get a little tamer because every time I put my hand in the near the bird it wing slaps me and pecks at my...

    I went to sit and talk to Dory this afternoon. Her and Scooter are on eggs. AGAIN.....:rolleyes: So, I talked to Dory for a while and then when I cut the camera off, I heard Scooter. He was SUPPOSED to be on the nest, but I guess he couldn't stand to hear us outside their little loft and not...

    Meet Rooster, he was surrendered to our rescue two days ago after being found on the side of the road. The woman who found him took him to the vet, who determined that his wing was injured some time ago and was healing in the wrong position. He also had a wound on his scalp, which is healing up...

    Ive got a Dove that I have had for years, now have an injured pigeon. The pigeon has been in a cage for about a week and was getting frustrated I think so I let him out to stretch his wings. Flew straight over to where my Dove was and where her seed and water is and started flapping his wings...

    I hesitated posting or showing this video because it seems so hostile. I have never experienced such unbridled hatred from my hand raised runt pigeon before. My interactions with her have always been much more "demure" than this. I'm sure it was the new video camera that caused her to get so...
  13. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    I have been reading through some posts. When I came home from work tonight there was a pigeon sitting by the stairs on my porch. I left for a few hours and when I came back he was still sitting there. I could not bear to leave him all night. So I filled a box with shredded newspaper and put a...

    My friend Barry called me today to say that he had picked up a pigeon that was just standing fluffed up in a corner. He had no difficulty picking it up. His last rescue had only lasted a couple of hours in my care and he was quite anxious about this one, hoping that it would be OK as he had...

    So, Pecky (small, 3 months old, and a girl, i think), and Baby (bigger, about 6 weeks old, and a boy, i think) are still not getting along together. I have been leaving Baby in the bathroom with Pecky during the day, and keeping an ear out for any squeaking noises (which means Pecky is hurting...

    Thought I'd start a new update thread for those of you who might be following Loverly's recovery. He continues to do well. He now has about six or seven tail feathers and one wing feather that has grown out. There are many more feathers poping up. His leg and foot are covered in the pictures as...

    Hi all, I have a bird (originally rehab but she stayed because she was tame and bonded with another unreleasable bird here) who about a month ago was egg bound. Her initial symptoms were standing with a "hump" in her back and not eating much. On examination, an avian vet was able to palpate an...
  20. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Hello, fellow Pigeon Folks, I made an observation today and thought I would put it out there to see what you guys think. At my usual feral feedings, about ten out of the sixty or so pigeons insist on landing on me to get there grains. The others are not afraid of me, but do not seem to...
