    I have a pigeon that flew into my chicken coop one day and has decided to call that area home. So far the roosters and hens don't mind it and I really don't have a problem with it being in their but can someone tell me why its there. And why do ducks hate pigeons I also have a male duck that tries to attack the pigeon whenever it can. (you don't have to answer all of the questions just tell me why the pigeon is there).

    How nice for you to have a new pet pigeon.

    Is it tame... does it have a ring or leg band? I may be a lost fancy pigeon.. or lost racing homer.

    It will live fine with your chickens.. and eat their food. Its a good idea to buy some mixed pigeon seed for it too.

    If its a lost racing pigeon.. it will rest and fatten up.. and then probably decide to fly back to its loft... or it might like it in your coop and stay. If it stays a long time you might like to get it a mate......
