PostSubject: adopting unreleasable pigeon!   Sun May 30, 2010 10:00 am

im adopting an unreleasable (male) pigeon for my female pigeon who just lost her mate to a racoon. my pij is blind in one eye so i cant let her out except for in my room so it would be nice for her to have a companion that is also handicap.

They would be hiding under a deck, porch or even high up in the trees. Did the mom look like she was a nursing mother?
This is so horrible, all around...I'm heart broken. I'm so sorry Anne. I wish I could make is better.

Anne...there are probably 2 babies. The mom has them hidden under a deck, crawl space...someplace dark. They may come out of hiding, after dark, if they are old enough to do so.

I am so very sorry Anne. What an awful tragedy to happen. I can not imagine how terrible you must feel.

Adopting another disabled pigeon for your bird is a good idea. However, I would introduce her to him very slowly. She will realize her mate is gone so it might take her some time to adjust to a new male.

Please take care of yourself.

Again, I am so sorry.

ive looked all over my property and my neighbors and cant find anything i even use a ladder to climb up trees.. also itll probably take quite a while for someone to come up with a handicapped pij that needs a home so that should give her some time... although i feel so bad they were so close... they were actually brother and sister too

Anne, I know this might not be the right time for you to be making a decision on a new bird. However, I have a young small female with a missing eye that I would be more than happy to give yo

Her name is Una. I rescued her last December. She is now approx. 6 months old. You can read her story.http://pij-n-angels.forumotion.net/feral-pigeons-and-doves-f3/feral-baby-with-injured-eye-t866.htm?highlight=baby+with+injured+eye

She is a tiny little girl and very sweet. I love it/them I love it/them Sometimes two females together make wonderful nestmats.

Take your time making any decision and let me know.

Group hug

would getting her a female friend help as much/ more with keeping her happy than with a male? males can be kinda pushy and agressive.. muffins is very sweet but will peck at anything that come up on her blind spot. do you have a picture of her?

also i talked to my mom about it and she thought it would be a very good idea to get a girl so the cooing wont be as loud in the morning since they'll be in the house.

I think getting her a female companion would be perfect.

Read her story Ann...

http://pij-n-angels.forumotion.net/feral-pigeons-and-doves-f3/feral-baby-with-injured-eye-t866.htm

I'll take a picture of her, email it to Charis and hopefully she will post it for me.

To my knowledge, two little females together do wonderfully.

Hi Anne, I haven't had a chance to get Charis' advice on how we should proceed, but I promise you Una is yours.

I know yesterday was a terrible day for you. I hope you are feeling better today.

Anne...........I do not trim any of my birds nails.

I tried it once........I caused a bleed........It scared me to death.........I never attempted it again.

I really have to get together with Charis and make arrangements to get Una to you.

How is your other bird doing without Oreo?
