Good Morning! We were just given a beautiful white pigeon about 5 weeks old. he/she still has some pin feathers on head and breast. Presently we have him in a resurrected cage that isn't really big enough, but we don't intend to keep him in it once he is bonded to us. There is room enough to stretch his wings but not fly. We have raised wild pigeons before and one was so tame and bonded that we took him camping. He was free to do whatever and always came in at night voluntarily wherever we were, which was his M.O. at home as well. That was over 10 years ago and we've forgotten a few things. There is both food (seed) and water in the cage with him but we haven't seen him eat or drink anything. We are keeping his cage wherever we are to get him used to us and the new surrounding. He had been in a pigeon house with lots of others. Any advice in our pursuit would be appreciated.
