What Is A Male Pigeon Called?

A male pigeon is called a Cock.

Male pigeons are easy to confuse with female pigeons as they are the same size and they also help to incubate eggs, sharing the job with their female partner.

If you do manage to work out that a certain pigeon is male, you now know that the correct name for him is Cock not “boy pigeon” or similar!


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.
