Facts about Freddie (w/ Freckles)

  • Breed: Pigeon
  • Color: White
  • Age: Adult
  • Sex: Female
  • ID#: 7705639-A2013032
UPDATE 5/6/15: Freddie needs a small, gentle flock. She's got mobility issues (stiff, sore legs, suspected arthritis), is timid and has a very jealous mate.

UPDATE: Freddie has married the widower Freckles and they are now available only has a mated pair. Freddie does't like to be handled and will do best either as an aviary bird or with someone who's willing to love her from afar.

Fred is a rare bird- she is a single female! Our pigeon hens usually get mated up quick (and we do have some bachelors fostered that would love to meet Fred) so don't delay if you're looking to adopt a single King pigeon hen. Fred is young, approximately 9 months old. She was rescued after a predator attack, and she had a wing boil that was suggestive of paratyphoid. She has a slight limp, but has otherwise recovered completely. She is sweet and personable around other birds, but is terrified of human handling. She would do well in an aviary with other pigeons.Please apply to adopt

About Palomacy Pigeon & Dove Adoptions

About Our Rescue Group...

Palomacy Pigeon & Dove Adoption saves homeless domestic (unreleasable) pigeons and doves in the SF/Bay Area from euthanasia by providing veterinary care, foster and forever homes.

Palomacy fills a deadly gap in the animal welfare community by saving the lives of domestic/unreleasable doves and pigeons that would otherwise be killed. We're volunteer-powered, donation supported and culture changing! By providing avian vet care, foster and forever homes, we've saved more than 700 birds' lives since 2007. Join us!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We are a volunteer-powered rescue and our birds are lovingly cared for in the private homes and backyard aviaries of our foster volunteers. Potential adopters can make appointments to meet our birds and we are at adoption & outreach events almost every weekend. See our Events page at and visit our Facebook page at for details.

Our Adoption Process...

We require an online adoption application, phone screen & home visit and offer lots of support and coaching all along the way. Our adoption fee is $10/bird and our expectations for adopters are:
-Appropriately sized, safe and uncrowded cage or aviary approved by Palomacy
-Supervised, safe out-of-cage time (if not living in an aviary) daily
-No free flight/uncaged outside time
-Protection from hazards including but not limited to escape, pets, predators, fumes and toxins
-Companionship- lots of your time or another bird's (not home alone)
-Avian vet care if sick or injured
-Compassionate, healthy care that provides for the bird's nutritional (including lighting), physical and emotional well-being
-No breeding, birth control if bird has a mate (real eggs replaced with fakes which we provide)
-A forever home (through sickness and health, for better or worse) with a pet-care plan in place should something happen to you
-No selling, sporting or business use of birds
-Return to Palomacy if unable to keep the bird (This is not desired- we expect that you are providing a forever home!)
