I have three homing doves that have been together since hatching (last January). They all flock together when flying. All are females. Two tend to snuggle together, the third is the odd 'duck'. The loner and one of the pair have always fought, but they are becoming more aggressive with one another. Twice now, one of the birds has drawn some pretty serious blood. The first time it was on the neck (pulling feathers and causing bleeding). The second time it is two fairly serious scabs/wounds closer to the leg. I noticed the latter when the injured bird refused to fly, I think because she is just stiff. She is my best flyer and had always been the most eager to be out and about. When they fly together, she is also clearly the leader. Lately she has been very reluctant to fly. Yesterday was the worst. I opened the cage and two took off. The last one just looked at me. I dumped her from the box, and she stood on the asphalt and just stared around. Then she ran under the car to hide. Even when I started the engine. Finally, I scooted her out from under the car, I tried to pick her up, but she took off. The other two birds were circling for her and I saw them flying off together. I will obviously not be flying her until she's fully healed - it's clear she's sore. I would have driven her home yesterday if she had let me pick her up. Any suggestions? The serious fighting has been fairly new. And what I don't understand is that the injured bird is the most aggressive. I am pretty sure it is another pigeon that is attacking her, not the hens. I was thinking about getting another dove but I don't know if this will make things better or worse.
