Basically if you walk into the room. Or the parakeets chirp. Or the wind blows. Or if its Saturday. She's really timid. She seems calm in the cage I suppose because she has nowhere to go. Given space she runs for cover. She's been hiding under the table for the better part of the past 2 hours. Though she seems comfortable... She's laying down at least.
Well she needs time to habituate to new surroundings. Homers as you well know have different personalities than Olives breed but they appear to me to be great observational learners and do habituate readily to repeated features of their environment. Perhaps if she stayed in her cage most of the time for the first week or so where she can both see and hear what is going on while she becomes accustomed to the sounds, sights, smells and the daily routines of your HH. Thinking of it as an indoor settling cage.:)
I doubt I've added to what you already know. Patience is key.

What good news! And what a great picture! Your taller than I thought FMF! Jk:p
I like the names they look like good pigeons and will hopefully do you proud.
Just in case yall, my real name isn't BP... :D

And no, I don't mind the names. They are good for me! :thumbsup
I think I can just about remember your first very brief post! I'm glad you both had a good day and now thanks to you, FMF is a fully fledged pidgy owner! :celebrate
I haven't heard anything from the guy who's pigeon I released. I'm hoping she has got back OK but he did say there is a possibility she may come back here in a couple of days. We'll see.

Such may be necessary. I just wanted to let her stretch her wings for a bit after spending five days in a little box with her wing taped up. She came out after four hours and went to the cage on her own.
