Good Afternoon, I have a pigeon that I have been raising that got scalped as a small squab, so I took him in and I have been caring for him. The idea is that when he is of age I will be taking him to my parents house with a couple other small pigeons his age where they will have a large old playhouse to stay in and can free fly as they please. I did this with another pigeon I raised a few years ago and he stayed around by himself until one day he saw a couple of doves....flew away with them and never returned! Anyways, I am not sure when I will be able to take him over there I got him on easter where he was about a week old and I've had him a month tomorrow. So he is a little over a month old. He is starting to fly around the apartment, he loves to eat peas out of my hand and then he wants his crumbles which he eats on his own, he still peeps and I can tell he is maturing as he is not eating as much as he was last week. His beak is still not fully "adult" like. Although I leave food in his tub with him as well as water and if I am late to his feeding it seems like he does eat some as his crop has some in it, I just don't want to take him too early! Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
