What Is A Baby Pigeon Called?

The correct name for a baby pigeon is ‘a Squab’.

Baby pigeons are squabs until they reach the age of 4 weeks old.

By 4 weeks old they are ready to take their first flight and will be almost as big as a fully grown pigeon (this is why you never see baby pigeons).

Once a pigeon is ready to take its first flight it is no longer a squab but a fledgling.

Dan has been fascinated with pigeons since his youth when he used to feed them breadcrumbs at the local park. With a background in SEO Dan noticed a few years ago that there were very few websites around dedicated to his favorite bird so he set out to change that by starting Pigeonpedia.
