Salle - any news on the dove?

How is it? Any news?

My news is that Jose and Happy's baby seems to be doing well, but I don't think the other egg will hatch - it's been too long now.... shame.

Salle de Bain's Avatar Hi Faith,
Yes it says No. 39 on one leg and then there's a long number on the other leg. Will try ringing it tomorrow. Didn't know that racing pigeons could be white! I just assumed it was a pet from a dovecote somewhere. She/he has no fantail...

Anyway, I am so taken by the beauty of having a white bird in the garden, I've ordered a book on doves and how to build a dovecote. I have a feeling that my bargain Lidl jigsaw will be out soon Very Happy

Faith's Avatar I doubt if it is a racer, though it could be. It's more likely a bird used for wedding/funeral releases or just a pet whose owner has put their tel no on the ring.

White birds are quite magical but think carefully before you get a dovecote - it's not quite how you imagine it to be!

Salle de Bain's Avatar Tell me more Faith!
Is it hard to keep doves?
I did have a friend who had to climb a ladder and remove eggs everyday. she said if she didn't do that she'd probably get 100 doves a year >
