I am new to the pigeon talk and i am not familar with the pigeon breed.
All i know, these are pigeon from the park. I am currently handfeeding baby pigeons. I would like to know where to take them. Also, my neighbors about 30 complaints to the Maricopa County enviromental about the pigeons. We took all our bird feeders down and bird bath and quit feeding the pigeons that comes at early am and leave at dark.
How long does it take without food and water will the pigeon quit coming to our property. The baby pigeons parents were poison by a pest control company. They are the one that went door to door to have the neighbors call and complaint about the pigeons on our roof. We would like to get a well known pest control to take care of the pigeon problem. thank you.

Thank you for feeding the orphaned baby pigeons. I will send a message to several of our members in Arizona to see if they can help you find a rehabber.
When did you take your feeders down?
In my opinion, all pest control companies whether well know or not approach pigeons in a similar way and that is with poison.

i found a site -to look up pest control company. http://www.kellysolutions.com/az/searchbyconame.asp
i did not find the pest control company at this site.

i counted 12 babies, still yellow fuzz. and 6 older one learning to feed each other. One is pure white, some brown and other is like gray and white.

the parents i noticed had 2 leg band on both legs and some had one band on leg. some were white, chocolate and the rest were gray. also, there were parakeets, lovebirds, cockatiels feeding on the feeders beside wildbirds.

You actually physically HAVE the babies? Or they are still outside? The parents were banded? That is WAY illegal for them to poison a banded bird! You should and can do something about that, i am sure!

Hello Pigeon2luv.

I'm Cindy & live in Mesa.
There are a couple of us who can hopefully help you out.

Bear with me as I have a few questions that will hopefully expedite assisting you with the babies.

1) Do you have a total of 18 babies?
2) Are any of the babies needing to be tube fed?
3) The six babies that you say are learning to eat, are they learning to eat seeds?
4) Could you click on this link, look through the pictures & let us know about how old the babies are that you have?

Sorry to be getting here late on this one .. looks like our Arizona members are working on this. If there is anything I can do, somebody please holler.

There are wildlife rehabs in AZ that will take pigeons. Dave Roth at the Urban Wildlife Society may be another resource when it comes to publicity and whether the actions taken by the pest control were legal or not.

Thank you for saving all of these babies. I think you officially qualify as a Guardian Angel. Sounds like your neighbors--as well as the pest company-- all need to be taken out back and shot. Hopefully you can get some help from some of our members soon. That's a lot of babies! If this helps, this is the hand-feeding method I have found easiest, for me and for the babies, after I've tried several:

Please keep us updated and feel free to ask any questions at all.

Kim has about 7 cages/carriers that can be utilized.

I'll take 4 or 5 of the babies & Kim can take 3-4.
If any of our other AZ members can take 1-2-3, it would be a great help.

Pigeon2luv, are you going to take legal actions. You should try and ketch these other birds and see what the bands say. They could be lost racers or other fancy birds that got loose from there owner.
