    At least I think it is a pet. It doesn't look like a Phoenix Ratbird, nor does it act like one.

    It let me pick it up without any hastle, and was content to hang out in the coop/run while the chickens and turkeys free-ranged.


    Thoughts? Comments? Suggestions?

    I am betting it is a pet, but since you can't keep pigeons in Phx, I am not sure how to go about finding the owner.

    For sure a pet bird ,not a wild one. Not for sure what breed it is. I love the beautiful yellow coloring! It might work to list it on the farm and pet sections of your local craigslist.Proably didn't come from very far away. You may have some neighbors with "hidden" birds!lol

    It doesn't have the right head shape for a WOE, but I would say some kind of tumbler most likely. Very pretty! Does it have any bands on its legs?
