    Releasing rescued pigeon?

    A few weeks ago, I went into our barn to get some straw for my geese. I noticed something moving on the floor of the barn - a very young pigeon. Way too young to be out of its nest. As we have stray cats in the area, I didn't want to leave it there to die. The nests were all very high up in the...
