My Pigeon flock!

    This spring, in April, we got pigeons! We started with four and now have 13. Tomorrow we will have 14, as one will be hatching tonight or in the morning! They are mostly Birmingham Rollers, with a few others.

    This is Marco, one of the two first baby pigeons we raised.

    This is Cloey, she is a crossbreed baby that we have had to hand raise because her parents were having trouble caring for her. She is super friendly, and will do just about anything to get food! She is just finishing feathering now, so soon she will be gorgeous!

    Somehow these pictures didn't get in order! This is Cloey, just a few days old.

    And this is Tauriel and Susan, the younger siblings of Marco and Taylor. They are quite a bit larger than this now, almost fully grown.
