So about a month ago my city swooped in and gave me 24 hrs to remove my 7 2lbs hens or they were going to take them and dispose of them themselves. I do so love my city now.
Anyway, I rent a building downtown and it opens into about 1/10 of an acre of back alley/lot. In that space, on the building next to me is a couple of old old air conditioners attached the to side of the almost abandoned building. In these rusted out and falling apart air conditioners there is a thriving covey(?) of pigeons. Does the city remove these birds who are much much nastier and annoying then my girls, or even have the air conditioners removed because they could fall on someone's head? No. My girls where much more of a problem. Blah
So here's my thoughts. These guys are used to me, they are very pretty, and the city won't remove them. I can easily get up there so I am considering going up, removing all the eggs, and then collect fresh eggs daily.
What do you think? How well do pigeons produce anyway?
