    Hi guys just a quick question...is it normal for a 2 week old pigeon to flap one wing more than the other? For example, when it’s feeding time or when I talk to him he flaps his wings from being excited, but one wing is always the one to flap more and the other he usually doesn’t use as much...

    Hi all, Is tying the wings of pigeons and doves OK? My neighbour lets his fantail out in the yard, but he has tied it's wings, so it can't fly. He did this after one of his fantails flew away when he let them out. So I just wanted to know if this practice was harmful or not for the birds...

    I have a pigeon who has her three main flight feathers clipped about halfway down on both of her wings. Is there a painless way that i could start her moulting out these feathers so that she can fly again? Or does she have to remain grounded till the fall. :(
