I was given a young homer who is probably 18-20 weeks old now. I have had him for a couple weeks. He is MEAN! He pecks at my hand, and makes his warbling coo sound while doing it. Are they always mean? If I got him a friend will it help? Right now the thought of letting those wings grow out sounds nice- "mean bird...fly fly away..", but I digress..I would purchase a friend for him if it would help.. Or if someone who has a flock of these somewhat near me would be interested in him, I would even do that. I just need to do something because getting pecked by a pigeon every single day is not something I feel like doing. I don't know anyone who sells homers, so I don't know where I could get him a mate. What he really needs is a seasoned female who could whup his tail feathers into shape and right on down the 'pecking order' ladder.
