Pigeon Photo of the Day

This miserable little scrap is Poppet. I meant to write up Poppet's story, but he died last night so the story is a bit like a pricked balloon...... in a nutshell Poppet had been poorly since I first saw him before August even started. Somehow he struggled on - went missing for a couple of days when we had that torrential rain - somehow struggled back and was a real little fighter. But the other night I found him pathetically standing outside the aviary at dusk, so put him inside and he died two days later. RIP Poppet you were a real little sweetheart.

Re:
Fennie's Avatar If your pigeons lived longer, Faith, they wouldn't need to breed so often. But Poppet does have lovely markings. Have you ever tried taxidermy? Very Happy

Re:
Fairy Nuff's Avatar I can't imagine why anyone would want their pet stuffed.
My Uncle had a wildcat that was caught in a rat trap in the barn on the farm stuffed, the taxidermist made a superb job of it and made it look extremely ferocious in a pouncing pose. Uncle H put it on the landing halfway up the stairs but round a corner and took great delight in hearing the screams of visitors as they went to the loo. Laughing
