Yesterday i answered an ad on CL for a flock of free fantails. Turns out that she really meant flock! So I answer the ad and she tells me that they have to go together ALL OR NONE! I say that's okay, not even thinking to ask how many their were. I drive an hour and arrive at her house with 4 boxes. Turns out i needed all the extra boxes, cause her flock was 15 fantails and 7 homer/fantail crosses. I slap myself mentally and start rounding up the pigeons. Her lofts were gorgeous, though. She had two and they were both 40'x20'x20' and completely enclosed and dry. She handed me a net for the fantail loft and i turned it down and just caught them all by hand. I did a few mid air catches that were quite skillful. The homer loft was much more difficult since they were faster and I ended up needing the net for those guys. I love these fantails, their are at least 4 or 5 varieties in their, Blue pied, black pied, a few reds and a couple that I'm not familiar with. They are all beautiful and super friendly birds. I'll have to go through and weed out the ones that don't meet the standard, but there are a few that have some nice potential as show birds and breeders. The homer crosses are pretty cool too and look pretty interesting. I'm pretty excited and I'm thankful that my loft is so large. They all have plenty of room.
