    Hi, I recently acquired a flightless pigeon (courtesy of a troublesome local kid with a BB gun) and will be picking up my first chickens (two americauna chicks and two buff orpington chicks) later this week.

    I just thought I'd introduce myself, and this seems to be the place to do it.

    So, hi.

    [​IMG] And thanks for caring for the pigeon. Hopefully it will heal and be able to fly once again.

    Quote:Sadly, no. His tendons are too damaged. The vet says he's likely grounded for life. I talk more about him in this thread if you have insight, I'd love guidance.
