PostSubject: Hey you, the cute chick, Pick Me!   Fri Jul 29, 2011 6:08 am

I'm having a fortunate oppurtunity to attract myself a mate All I have to do is get Freeda to like the cat travel box. Too much, just passing the trash yesterday and there's a pigeon nest.

Cindy was sayin that Freeda will pick a mate and go live were he is, I'm not totally sure where she hangs now but when she comes to eat she's always alone. So I'm thinkin she's still single, born in early May.

I got the nest by the window, on the floor, all I do is add some sticks? Btw, she comes in to eat, not letting me get too close yet, got to do some bribbing?

I live alone and was almost considering a small dog, so far so good with Freeda, a wild pet bird that comes and goes as she pleases is more than I can ask, I think, I'll definately out live her and my last dog was bad enough.

Got any ideas, or should I leave things be?

Sticks in the box is a good idea, and yes, bribing too! Gotta wine and dine a girl, right? Wink Chopped raw peanuts and shelled sunflower seeds are very appreciated as bribes. It may take some time, because when pigeons come across them for the first time they may not know they're food. But once they get the taste for them, they LOVE them! They love cake crumbs too (not chocolate), but that's junk food! That's too funny
Then all you've got to do is bow to her and dance around a bit! (Wish I was a fly on the wall...) ROTFL ROTFL ROTFL

Although pigeons in the wild often only live for 2-3 years, those who are cared for can, I believe, live for 15-20, so you could have a pet for a very long time there.

I thought I posted this. Replies don't come to my inbox automaticly, I'll try and remember to check the box.

A little dance? I can get the sunflower seeds and some sticks but how do you dance with a bird with two left feet? Laughing

How about some romantic cooing? The sound track on here would be excellent for some convincing, yes?

Right now I'm nothing but a sucker, she comes for supper, leaves me with the dishes, and flies off to where-ever she goes, one thing, she don't poop when she's eatin, so no real messes.

There is an option at the bottom of the thread (right side) 'Start watching this thread'. Click on that and you should begin to get notices in your email that a reply has been posted. Smile

Yes, the sound track might help, but there are coos of several different species in there, and I don't know how she feels about foreigners... Wink That's too funny

Then all you need is somethig like this:

I tryed the sound track no her and she didn't lookup from her supper. If i had a speaker for the box, well the party would be on.

Then I dressup and do the chicken dance for a pigeon, Embarassed

So far nothing is working, humm, I think I'm having a dejavu. LOL

ps. can you point me to a sound track? one like when the male is cooing in the nest. thx

That's not the easiest thing to find, funnily enough, as they usually stop if someone points a camera at them. In our sound track, the first sounds are from wood pigeons, which will probably sound strange to Freeda.
There's a male pigeon cooing here: http://www.pigeonangels.com/t2745-elmo-in-love-funny-video?highlight=Elmo but it's only a little bit, and the sound isn't that clear.
But you don't need to worry about playing her the soundtrack from another pigeon, because if you want her to bond with you she needs to become accustomed to your voice, not another's. So it works fine if you speak to her softly (they get startled with sudden or loud voices), bowing your head to her, at the same time that you offer her something nice to eat. If she doesn't have a mate yet, she may in time decide to accept your offer, and move into the nest you made for her.

PostSubject: more progress   Wed Aug 03, 2011 12:45 pm

Freeda was here early yesterday and she stayed until quite late. When she was in she was checking out her box, standind on it, i don't think she's been inside yet, but thewre was one of the sticks on the floor, She found a roller on my exercise contraption that she used as a perch so all in all feeling at home. She warmed up to the shelled sunflower seeds so could be my love food. Should start a separet post, no?

That's very encouraging! cheers Feeling great

It's really up to you, if you want to start another thread. This one is perfect to talk about your developing relationship with your pet pigeon, but you may want to post in 'Pigeon Behaviour' about anything that puzzles you, or in 'Chitter Chat' to talk about all sorts of things, even if they aren't about pigeons (I hope you'll consider posting some favourite pics in 'Give Us Your Best Shot'), etc.
Have a look around, there's lots of information and fun to be found!

It's great that Freeda is getting more comfortable around you and her surroundings, Grant. cheers

My plan has been had by Papa pigeon.

Today I see Papa raiding my nest. At first I thought it was Freeda, they look identical except for the size. I'm watching and he's taking my sticks to his house, or her house, she was in the nest fixing the sticks. So then Freeda shows up and Pa was in my nest, well Freeda looked perplexed. So Freeda gets inside and Pa is lookin to get in too, seems he doesn't like her coming in, to eat even. So I'm like Papa no, and I think he understood me, and went down from the sill.

Looked kinda like Pa was going to move into my shack too so i stood it up and out of the way, so no more persuading Freeda for now. Winter is cold here so she might have a change of heart by then.

Pa sounds like the typical male with a nesting mate.
If he sees a gathering of twigs, etc., he's going to take advantage of the situation and take them. Kind of like one stop shopping.

Once Ma and Pa have made their nest and eggs are in place, I doubt he will go looking for any more materials.
