The day our baby chicks arrived, this beautiful pigeon showed up as well. He must have heard we were welcoming poultry. He has been roosting in our garage at night, in the morning he is sitting on the brooder next to the heat lamp. No bands of any kind, but clearly not afraid of people. If you get less than a foot away, he backs away, but you can pretty much walk right up to him.
Is this some's pet? What do you think? I have already checked out past posts on keeping chickens and pigeons together, so we might try to create a nice space in the coop for him, but I assume he will probably get lonely with out any other pigeons. I keep calling the pigeon a "he" I have no basis for that determination.
Thanks for any thoughts you may have.
