I was ready to turn the flock out the other day and noticed a pair of morning doves amongst the chickens. Of course, they enjoy picking up their scraps and sneaking in for warmth... Is it safe for my flock though? I know several people in the area own doves, pigeons, etc. I don't see them banded. They aren't particularly shy of people. I really don't mind them if they aren't a risk to the flock. Since they free range, the come into contact with sparrows, crows, robins, etc. all the time. None of those birds though have the gal to come into the coop and make themselves at home though!
