Sounds like pretty normal pigeon behavior to me. They have to bond before tgey will mate.
Even if they've mated before?Sounds like pretty normal pigeon behavior to me. They have to bond before tgey will mate.
Sounds like male pigeon is trying to mate, while female is not so interested.Hey all,
My male and female mated pair have been acting unusual during this first week as their adopter, and I wanted to ask if you have any insights about their behavior.
The female doesn't like hanging out in the nest. The male spends most of his time spinning around in circles, cooing, and laying low making these deep purring noises. If the female walks onto the nest, the male seems irritated.
Their appetites are normal, and they get adequate time outside to stretch and fly around.
My suspicion is that the male is frustrated and trying to mate. I haven't seen them engage in any sexual behavior since adopting them.
Any thoughts? Would appreciate input and / or suggestions on what I can do to help them cheer up.
