I have 38? pet chickens. It's a happy coop. Last summer? 2 pigeons show up. Not unusual since I live in a huge pigeon area in Florida. They stay. They eat. They drink. No big deal. Then I hear peeping. I have a trash bag hanging on the wall in the coop. There's 2 chicks in there. Pigeon chicks. They're huge and their pin feathers are just starting to open. Mom feeds them. Well, I did alot of reading and found out that banded pigeons have owners! So I go to the pigeon store here, and explain all this and the lady tells me no matter where they go they will always come back to my house. Even if the owner takes them. I'm giving her the band numbers tomorrow. She said the babies can't be banded cause they're too old. So am I out of luck finding them a nice pigeon home? And babies with no bands? Help!
