    I apologize if I am posting this in the wrong section or incorrectly, but I was hoping on some information on finding my pigeon a mate! I recently got her from a man with over 200 BIRDS, and he did not tell me much about her. She is a few years old. She is with my 2 cornish hens and 3 female quail, but she mopes all day and seems lonely. How can I find her a mate? Thanks!! xxx

    Bird swaps, craigslist, local newspapers are all good places to search for birds.. Best of luck!

    If they guy has OVER 200 birds... why the heck did you only buy ONE?

    Go back to the guy and get a few extra. Then let pairing up begin naturally.

    Haha :) I wish I could have bought them all, but my parents said no more pets! Lol. That won't last long.
