Tamed pigeons raised with cats and dogs obviously don't have a fear of them.
You should have seen the ruckus when my pigeon tried to land on the back of my Airedale....!!!!!
I was running and screaming, the Aire was snapping, and the pigeon was sitting on the fence thinking WTH is all the commotion?
Too funny---- afterwards.

LOL, yes it's funny afterwards, lol! My cats tolerate the birds, but I can't turn my back on them for a moment - instinct always trumps logic

TT,we have Hawks here in the winter and my heart breaks every time he gets one of"my"Pigeons,but there is not much I can do about it,just hope the Pigeon died quickly.
Of course it's different with yours,you brought them up from babies.

Yeah if mine were more wild, they would be perfect canidates for release. Well, at least they will have a long life (15 yrs or so) here than they would outside (2-3 yrs or so)

New Pics!!

Ozzy and Diva are now just over 2 months old They are absolutely gorgeous birds They are now cooing, which is completely awesome

Do, here are the babes:

Diva in front, Ozzy in back; Ozzy showing off how beautiful he is; Ozzy sitting with hubby as he plays World of Warcraft.

They got their first nail trim yesterday - went very well without any issues (yay!). Now they are sitting with me, preening and fluttering about the living room, lol.

TT, it is so nice to see the babies again.
I used to sit around with a towel on my shoulders to keep my shirts free of poops and claw marks.

OMG, I can't believe I missed this whole thread

That is so sweet to give Ozzie and Diva a chance in life, all lives are precious.
