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.

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

Faith's Avatar Oh that's not funny Fennie - especially after we read that awful book, The Texidermist's Daughter......Sad

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
