I see plenty of info on keeping diamond doves and other doves with finches, but no info on keeping a pair of pigeons with a canary or finches.
Has anyone ever kept a pair of pigeons with small birds?
I have a flightless pigeon and his mate(neither is flighty), in a small aviary, who I think would get along with a small bird, but want to see if anyone has experience.

I wouldn't. If they wanted to, the pigeons can injure a small bird.
No duh, but the question is would they. Many animals can hurt smaller animals, but don't. Just think of peoples Canis lupus familiaris(Dog), or the domestic wolf. It certainly can hurt someone, but it depends on the breed and personality. Which is why I'm asking if people have experience in this, not just unfounded ideas.
Personally, I kept canaries with parakeets and cockatiels, both of which can hurt a small bird but didn't.

Pigeons hurt each other just because they want a perch or just feel like it. You figure it out. Come back and let us know.
Those aren't unfounded ideas. I keep pigeons and know them. Duh.
