subsection 5.2) Grooming

Pigeons

You should gently brush your pigeon's feathers once a week to remove any dirt or debris that may have accumulated on its skin. You can use a dry towel to absorb any moisture and you can use cool water and a mild soap mixture if the feather has an oil build-up. After you've washed the feathers, pat them dry with a towel and let them air-dry overnight so their feather will be nice and fluffy again.


subsection 5.3) Playing With Your Pigeon

Pigeons are fun to play with, but if you have multiple pigeons, it's always best to have two people for this. One of you should be on the outside of the cage holding the top while the other person is inside.

To get them out, just open the door and let them fly out. You can then close the door and do it all over again until they're all out.

This might seem hard at first, but once you've practiced a few times it will become easy and your pigeons will love when they get to go out for a little bit.
