    This is Ellie Mae! She hatched on May 15. I can't believe how fast she's growing. Whenever I go near her, The father just jumps up and moves away, but the mother will flap her wings and lunge at me LOL

    Here are the parents

    Thats so cool. I hope she looks red with that frill on her neck and a fantail, that would be awesome. Her crop is huge when she's young. I want pigeons now. Thnx for the pics.
