    They don't require any extra care than any other pigeon breeds [​IMG] They are a fancy breed so they won't fly much, but they can be let out to fly around the loft.

    Thank you do they require any special food, and can they be tamed easily?

    Mine gobble up peas, although they do handle the smaller seeds more easily. I feed my pigeons Brown's mixes, but it isn't found locally for everyone. They can eat the same stuff chickens and other birds eat, from wild bird seed, to pellets. But with Satinettes, if you want to feed pellets, it's probably best to give them crumbles since their beaks are so small. Cracked corn isn't the best for pigeons but it can be fed, and whole corn is too big for these little guys. Like I said, the biggest thing I've seen my Satinettes eat were peas. It's funny to watch them try to eat peanuts though [​IMG] I break up some for them so they don't feel left out.

    Satinettes are sweet little birds, and the boys are quite proud of themselves. They make great pets [​IMG] Since they aren't made for flying, they are easier to tame.
