Ok, we have adopted a house pigeon. She is 4, was raised by previous human parents from a naked baby after she was kicked off roof of apartment complex while spraying for moss. She is a standard pigeon, like the kind you see flying under overpasses or walking around the parking lots. She is beautiful in my mind. She wears a diaper if needed, she didn't live in a cage but a cat crate with them and was allowed to feed from a giant open pan of food. CRAP food. She uses a large rabbit cage at our house, we adapted it with a roost board, etc.. She does not have free reign of our home during the day(M-Th) because I do childcare but she is allowed out in evenings. I found some homemade pigeon food mixes online(I think on here) and she gets that food. She seriously picks through it, and wastes a lot. She is going through a molt right now. UGH Not only does she look awful but she has littered our house with TONS of feathers. I have tried to get her to eat other things, no luck so far. She seems to have picked me as her friend over my husband. She has never been outside, she thinks she is a human basically so no way she could go outside. I think it would kill her, just the stress alone of being away from her humans. So... any advice or food treats yours like? How often will she molt? My finches barely molt and our chickens and ducks(outside) molt once in the Fall...... Oh and we have had her 3.5 weeks.
