My poultry club had our big show over the weekend, and what a show it was! It wasn't huge, a good medium sized show (456 birds), but the quality of birds was outstanding! Well, as typically happens at this show I sell a few birds, and try very had not to buy any birds. Well, I stink at the second part! Last year I brought home a pair of Black East Indie ducks. I've always loved the East Indies and I have three now after picking up another one about a month ago. Sooo...fast forward to this year. The show is wrapping up and I've been very good and only sold birds. I'm chatting away to a friend and fellow exhibitor while taking some pictures of the grand champion pigeon. It's a pretty little oriental frill. I commented on how pretty she was, but that my favorite was the bronze archangel. Well, no sooner was it out of my mouth than he said he had a pair I could have since he was getting out of showing them. Sooo....my resolve crumbled and I now have a beautiful pair of Archangel pigeons with maybe another on the way. I've seen pictures of these birds on the web, but the pics don't do them justice. Has anyone ever raised pigeons and chickens? Will they get along with each other? As a chicken lover have I gone to the dark side? *lol* Cheers, Urban Coyote P.S: Ok, I have to brag a tiny bit. My rosecomb pullet took reserve grand champion in show! WooHoo!
