I went to a flock swap at a feedstore today. Been wanting to go for a while but never remembered. I got the chance to go alone and that was probably my first mistake. Many beautiful birds but I didn't like the prices or I had to buy a rooster that I didn't want. Bought a rabbit as an "oh! It's so cute and fluffy" purchase. I didn't plan on going into the feedstore but they had advertised as having a petting zoo inside. Curiosity killed me here. I went inside and as I was lookin over their stock I saw pigeons. Wasn't impressed with them but they planted a seed cause I knew the hubby one day wanted some. I got to the end of the cages and there was this one lonely pigeon. The rest had already been sold. I kept staring at it. Wrestling with the "omg I would be so dead but wouldn't he love it!" goin round and round in my head. I brought it home and hubby is happy in his own man of few words way. Lol So fb peeps think it is an old German owl pigeon. But it has a colored tail that in the standard doesn't jive. Also it has feathered feet. What are your guesses? And sex of the pigeon? Hubby really wants to know this. Yes it has a green tag on its leg. Will learn what that means shortly.
