I have started a group for UK pigeon rescuers to identify each other and identify resources:


and a website containing a list of Wildlife Hospitals, sanctuaries and vets in the UK that will help pigeons and doves. There are also details of postal testing services on the website:


All UK pigeon rescuers (and anyone else who wants to be involved in UK rescues even from a distance) welcome..please share your knowledge of pigeon friendly vets, wildlife hospitals and sanctuaries!

Pigeon Force is a small family run business owned by Daryl & Julie, who are based in Leeds, West Yorkshire,

This location is ideal as it is central to the Uk and close by to all major motorway links, M1, M62, A1 etc.

Daryl is a 4th generation Pigeon fancier and is the son of David Thornton who ownes and runs Uk Pigeon Couriers which are based in South Cheshire, some of you who may have used Davids courier company before may already know Daryl as he helped launch Uk pigeon couriers back in January 2009, both companys are going from strength to strength.

Whilst using Pigeon Force you can be sure that your birds are in the safe hands of experienced handlers and that any pigeons kept in our holding pens are looked after like they were our own.

We also carry a full Defra type 2 licence which is carried in all our vehicles and can be produced upon request.

Our vans have vents to the rear which keep the birds nice and cool during transportation.

We now have a new pricing structure which you will find very competitive, if not the cheapest.

All boxes needed for your pigeons are free, if you would like to buy some extra boxes we charge 40p per box, these can be purchased direct from the driver, "Subject to availability"

Prices are for England

£32.50 for up to 6 birds + £1 per extra bird

Prices for Scotland

1-6 Birds = £35 then £1 per bird

If you would like to contact us please feel free to do so

You can also visit us on Face Book search for "pigeon force" and join.

Please note we operate on a weekly booking system , but are able to fit jobs in sooner subject to availability,

We are always looking for feed back and would be greatfull if you could leave it.

Yours in sport

Daryl & Julie

We use Retford Poultry.

Whether they (or others) use droppings and/or swabs for testing will depend on what you want them to test for.

Give Retford Poultry a call or check their website.
