We recommend a minimum cage size of 42″ wide, 27″ deep, 30″ high for one or two (mated) pigeons and 32″ wide, 32″ high and 21″ deep for one or two doves.

Can you eat pigeon eggs?

Combined with a richer aroma than chicken eggs, this edible gemstone is certainly delicious enough to make a lasting impression on diners. “Since pigeon eggs are so small, they can’t be used to make scrambled egg.

Can you keep a pigeon alone?

Pigeons do great indoors as family pets. They can also live outside in a predator & rodent-proof aviary but I would never make a single pigeon live outside alone. They are flock birds and to be outside alone is stressful and lonesome for a pigeon. A single pigeon living indoors adopts the people as flock members.
