Meet the handsome and mysterious Puck.
Our pigeons are the masters of what we like to call leisure art. You'll find that they are extremely talented at the simple things in life and are very good at napping, laying in the sun and bathing.
Puck is great friends with all the other pigeons in our care, they are very flirtatious birds cooing gently to each other and love a good snuggle. They're hopeless romantics!
Domesticated doves and pigeons like human contact. They are quiet and peaceful, and make wonderful pets.
Pet pigeons and all types of doves have a subtle appeal due to their special characteristics. Most have a pleasant voice. It is generally a 'cooing' sound and most have about four or five types of calls. The strut of these adorable birds is accompanied with head nodding.
A dove and pigeon diet consisting of a basic commercial mix, supplemented with greens rich in minerals, is generally regarded as suitable. Greens can include such things as lettuce, endive, chickweed, clover, watercress, and spinach. Some fruits are berries, apple, and pear. For smaller doves and pigeons you can use a budgie or canary mix. The smaller birds will also enjoy millet spray.
