    We purchased an oriental frill a while back, and he finally got all his adult feathers in. He lives in the house and adores taking showers. He'll start off using the towel rack as a perch, step closer and closer to the spray, then plops down and struts around your feet as he rolls and flaps in delight. Showering was really boring and not at all cute before pigeons. Does anyone here have a house pigeon/house pigeons?

    Yes, at a time where I used to rehabilitate! He sounds so sweet [​IMG] Does he have a name yet?
    I usually gave mine tubs of water in which they squabbled (pardon the pun) over though occasionally they would also get a shower. My personal favourite was Muppet who used to lift up his wings like a human to let the water wash out his "wingpits" [​IMG]

    Yes, but it's really, really geeky. His name is Hoople (because frills are sometimes used as droppers, and the long nets called hooples used to be more commonly used with them).

    Aha, pun is pardoned. And that is adorable! Got to get rid of that bird BO. XD I'm guessing you got ferals in through rehab? I love watching them in our area. They are completely amazing fliers, and seem so full of character.

    Hi Punk-a-doodle!

    Sounds really cute, I can just picture it! [​IMG] I myself have two house pigeons; 1 giant runt and one show king.
