    We found this little guy (or gal) on the interstate, in the city... Any clue what breed, age, and sex it is? His back feathers are torn up, maybe he was used as a game cock?

    "I'm not a boy, mom!"

    Long story short: I rescued a baby pigeon that was found on the floor of my barn a few months ago now. Decided to keep the pigeon, as it wouldn't have survival instincts being raised by a human. He does great and has adapted well to indoor life (though I do take him outside with me a lot!)...
