I'm in Blairstown, NJ and I have about 22+/- pigeons mixed in with the chickens. I do let them all outside together on a nice day and the pigeons love to sit up on the roof of the house. They all come back in at night just nicely. I keep them just because they are beautiful. Sometimes I sell a few but I usually end up buying more than I sell! I have mixed breeds. some helmets, one homer from auction, pied, feather-feet, fantails, white Kings, and who knows what mix! They are just for fun so who cares what breed! I do have one, Victor, that hatched out partly blind. He can see enough to eat and drink but not to fly or defend himself from the others so I have him in a cage in my room. I tried to find a home for him but no one wants an absolutely gorgeous dark fantail with white feather-feet that is blind! Anyone interested in lightening my workload and providing a home for Victor? I originally named him Victoria but he is definitely showing masculine behavior!
