i would like to purchase a baby pigeon not more than 3-4 weeks old
it dont matter how hight the price is, and it dont matter what breed it is.
reason why i want not fully weaned pigeon is cause i want him to be more attached to me.
i had just lost a pet pigeon and instead of sitting here and crying i would like something to occupy my time
i am a veterinary tech and im also specializing in avian care
i just need one little baby, possibly to look like a regular pigeon on the street
if anybody has something simmular please let me know id appreciate it

it can be fully weaned not older than 8 weeks
please im gonna do whatever it takes. i just really need a pigeon in my life.
i know i sound desperate but i really am.
i lost my baby pigeon yesterday and i think in order to get back to normal or in order to go to work i need to have a pigeon
they are my all time pets i love them

goga82, I feel so bad for you, I think I might be able to help you. I just had my first pigeon baby Sept 8. You can see her on the thread "the cutest baby ever" Reti posted them for me so she is the original author of the thread. I have to find out how old she/he has to be before I send her/him. I also handle it everyday, several times aday. I have a few rules that must be met before this can be done. If you go away to college or you decide you don't want him/her then I want it shipped back to me and I want pics and updates at least once a month. I don't want any money for him/her, Just cost of the shipping box and shipping. Let me know. mindy
I'll send you a PM that has my email address.

I leave in Salem, New Jersey, 10 minutes from the delaware memorial bridge and 1/2 hour from Philadelphia

Its up to you, if you want to come here then you can come here. I've been calling her jessica, but she is so huge she could be a male. I've never been on a bus, but I could meet you at the philadelphia bus station. Or I'm sure she/he would be fine being shipped. mindy

I think picking her up will be much less stressful for Jessica. I am sure she will be a spoiled baby and will have a great life.
Babies can be weaned at three weeks of age, so guess you will have a baby very soon.

just one thought i would like to add, you might want to contact wildlife rehabilitators in your area, they may have some all ready imprinted ferals that need homes. i'm sure it would give them great relief to know one would go to such a loving home

She is 15 days old today. Of course if you can pick her up, it will be less stressful for the baby. I can meet by the Walt whitman bridge or the Delaware memorial bridge. It will be sad for me, but I'm glad she will be the queen or the king of your house. But I want lots of updates. This way, I can let sunny and Daddy have another baby. mindy

Mindy.......YOU ARE AN ANGEL.........I was reading goga's posts last night about the loss of her pigeon and it just broke my heart. This young lady is completely devestated by what happened and it is ever so kind and wonderful of you to offer her baby Jessica.


This is such a heartwarming story, please keep us posted.

I have to go replenish my tissue stock.

I have talked to her on the phone and its set, jessica has a new home. I honestly believe things happen for a reason. I mean I have replaced sunny's eggs 4 times since I have had her and then I just decided to let her have one just out of the blue. Its bittersweet for me, my first baby pigeon, but this way sunny and Mr. P can have another baby, and we all know thats what they love to do is have babies. I have taken more pictures today, I'm sure Reti will post a couple to show everyone how much she has grown in just 3 days since the last pictures.

Talking on the phone to her, I can't tell you how happy she was and that whats it all about. mindy

Amal, I personally have never had a bird die from being shipped to me but there are some horror storiers out there. You have to be in lots of communication with the post office and the person your sending it to. Constant!! You only ship on Mon or Tues. and they make special boxes just for birds. The Post Office is the only company that ships birds. Its not easy on the birds or the people its very stressful. There was just a sad story on here last week or so, where I guess the birds were left at the post office for 4 days. I don't know, I don't think we got the whole story on it, but the guy said there was one dead in the box and one died the next day. But from the story I was reading, that is neglect on all parties involved. I got my phone call from the post office at 5:30 am to come pick up the birds. My post office was great. Like everything, there are good and there are bad times. But I have had nothing but good. min
