  2. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello, my name is Amanda and I work at a veterinary clinic in the interior of BC, Canada. Today when I came on shift I was handed a mandarin orange box containing a fiesty young dove, which I suspect is a mourning dove. Beyond being in the mouth of a cat his body condition is good, though he has...
  3. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    After much consideration I decided to get a dove. I did a lot of research and it seemed a good fit for me. I picked him up Friday the 11th and had him in my lap for a while before I put him in his cage for the first time. Seemed interested in me for a while at first. But after he went into...
  4. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Found a fledgling (?) mourning dove in my backyard, small injury on its back, looks to be healing. Couldn't fly well, but wings look fine. Unfortunately there are many Stray Cats in the area, and although it doesn't look like a bite on its back, if it can't be somewhere safely I am afraid it's...

  6. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi pigeon talk people! I recently became the owner of a lone Ringneck dove. I have had birds in the past, budgies, cockateils and Galahs. But this is totally new to me. He was an aviary bird but not since long left the nest. So he is young but in no way used to humans. I have tamed aviary...

    Hi. I'm new here but need some help please. I have an 8-10 week old fledgling dove that for the last 4 weeks has been continually falling off the Dovecote table and unable to get enough height to fly back up.

    I received an email from a person in Tennessee who had found a young dove with a weak or injured wing. I gave her some basic ideas on what to do. She sent me this email last night: I'm trying to figure out how to post the pdf file she sent... I contacted you earlier today about the dove...
  10. General Discussions
    Hi All Well sadly a nest was blown out of a tree last week and a colleague took in the one chick that had survived and fed it suet pellets and egg yolk. I took it in on Friday and it was rather sorry for itself and in the last few days it has done brilliantly with lots of TLC from me, it has...

    My dove keeps putting her butt in the air and cooing at me. Is she ready to make babies or something, and will she stop doing that? :O

  13. Archive - Other Birds
    Hello, I've been watching a young (not a baby) mourning dove who somehow made it into my enclosed back patio (where I have a bird feeder) but can't make it back out. He clearly can't yet fly very well yet. For the first 2 days, he seemed ok--had energy, was eating, seemed in good spirits. I...
