    My sister used to live in San Francisco. Every Chinese New Year there would be hundreds of King Pigeons released as part of the celebration. Then they would end up lost on the streets or getting hit by cars, since they weren't really wild and didn't know how to cope. My sister was always scooping them up and taking them to Animal Control. They would be inundated with the big white birds. Since Chinese New Years is in February, you may or may not find some Kings at the San Francisco SPCA or Animal Control, but it couldn't hurt to try. Not too long a drive from Elk Grove.

    Google Mickacoo pigeon and dove rescue. They are overflowing with King Pigeons needing homes. Their website willl say something about having to take classes before adopting, but thats not for pigeons. They will ship birds,

    Look at WWW.Louisiana Market Bulletin.com there is a Pigeons title, ONLY Mr. Ray Vidrine in Washington La. will ship, his birds start at $5.00 each but R young birds. Don't buy from Foy"s Pigeon Supply or Strombergs Pets.com as U will pay $145.00 dollars 4 2 young UN-mated pairs.Also see Sacramento California C.L. Farm & Garden, Mr. Bobby Hue has Utility White Kings for only $10.00 dollars, and HE WILL ship. Get your boxes from WWW.boxesforbirds.com Mr. Mike & Sherrie Owens, they R Christians, & tell them Mark in Mobile Ala. told U 2 call. U want breeder age birds so that U can breed immediately so U can get some young birds coming fast. Send me a private message here. Foy"s only sells U young birds too.
