Pigeons

Well I have found out that most people know what a pigeon is..but few have seen a baby one..sooo here we go
These guys are about 2 week old and UGLY!!! Baby pigeons grow so fast that by the time I add another post they will probably look like adults. Now for the big surprise...here are the parents

Yes..they have curly feathers. They are know as frillbacks. I think they are neat looking birds. This is MAMA


This is POPPAFinally here is a close up of the feathers on the wing..I will post the babies again in a few days. I have another pair of a different breed sitting on an egg so I will try to take daily shots so you can see the difference a day makes!

Momma had better get with some aerobics, Poppa is quite the handsome regal looking fellow!

The pictures are amazing. Birds are so sweet. I have 2 cockatiels that were sitting on 5 eggs and then 4 eggs but neither set hatched.

Oh, I love pigeons very much. I raised a pair of babies when I was little and it was so much fun! I also used to rescue lost/injured pigeon babies. You're so lucky to be able to raise them.

I love the frilly-ness of their feathers. So pretty!
