Look what decided to join the flock! A pretty, pretty
rat bird, I mean pigeon!
Isn’t he/she lovely?
She’s obviously someone’s pet, since
rat birds, I mean pigeons, don’t look this good in the pigeon-infested city. She is muffed (feathered feet), couldn’t fly, didn’t mind me picking her up.
“Didn’t mind” be a matter of interpretation, since she doesn’t talk.
Only the chickens talk.
Juuust kidding. You hope.
I put her in the coop near the food and water. She hung out all day while the chickens free-ranged. She wasn’t in the coop when I put the flock to bed, but the next day she was back.
Since then, she’s been happily living in the coop. When I let the chickens and turkeys out to play, she just hangs out on her perch, watching everyone run around. No apparent desire to fly the coop, so to speak.
I did some stumping around the neighborhood to see if I could find her owner. So far, no takers. I suppose I will have to get her a separate cage, but if I do that, I will need to get her a friend.
Like I need more animals.
Yay for rat birds!!
