Hi MikeTyson,
I would turn cage to the left, back of the cage to face the balcony with the sitting girl.
That way your pigeon will be able to see outside when it is in the cage and most important get some sun in the morning.
Cage will be good for two pigeons, but you need another one to keep new bird in until they get used to each other.
3~4 days I to short period for pigeon to get used to new home. Do not let him out yet. If you want let him in you room and be with him. First bird needs to get used to your presence and then you can start taming. When my birds see me coming, they start flapping and showing impatience. I change food, water and talk to them all the time. It is important for you to talk to your birds. They get used to your voice and when you call them they will start coming even later when you start letting them out. One bird is no good if you plan to let him fly. Best is pair. One bird can easily forget to come back especially hen. Usually cocks claim territory and hens stay with them.

Do not handle her. In the beginning you may take the whole cage inside before sunset and feeding and let her out. Do not chase her, wait for dark and then if she does not go inside the cage take her gently and put her in.
When you are feeding take chair and sit by her. Talk to her, be around.
Take a book if you want and read her. She need to get used to you. Do not worry jet for mate. Let her be with you for a month and then you can find her a mate.
You can always contact someone in Athens or Rhodes and ask them to organize you mate. Young feral squeaker will do, if you can’t get other, but you don’t know is it male or female.

Well, Plamenh's got it covered, but I would just like to add: Don't try to catch an adult feral to be her mate; he will have his own territory and run away at the first chance :eek: and she'll go with him! :eek::eek:

Also just sit next to the cag and talk to her. Keep your voice real even, if you like to read...read aloud to her. I always have spent hours with my birds, just being near them every chance I got.

I know for most single animals 8 hrs of human interaction is recommended. I always gave my birds everybit of that.
