    I have a large shed style coop with 4 hens and 1 rooster. A friend asked me if I could take her barn pigeon. He was was stepped on by a horse and has broke his wing and unfortunately her facility is too busy and has too many horses to house him.

    I am looking for advise on whether a pigeon could live in a large coop with a large run, given he can't fly?
