    Well,

    Jethro is huge! He's been out of the nest for a few days now and he's out and about flying with his parents! His Momma has been on the nest and I think she's thinkin about laying more eggs. [​IMG]

    The pigeons life is like the ugly duckling The chickens life is like the pretty baby chick. The pigeon gets beautiful as it grows, chickens get uglier! hope that makes sense [​IMG]

    I cant believe I missed this post! The computer has been whacko lately.

    Thanks, Pixie! Im proud that I kept the parents alive, but they did all of this on their own!

    Thanks, Madison! Uhh, not really, haha! Im sure they could be, but they never did really like me.

    LOL, Jess. You are a brat!

    Yep, Ticks, that made sense,lol. I, personally, think baby pigeons are adorable, but to each his own!

    Hey Mark,

    I only saw these once at the feedstore and that is when I bought them. I did see a pair being shown at a show earlier this year, but I havent seen any since! I've seen them a few times on Eggbid though. Good luck finding some!
