The pigeons.biz/forums/tags.php?tag=chickens]chickens[/url] look very happy in their nice home.

The ducks are just adorable, and the pigeons are gorgeous, as always. Love the story about "stud" muffin. LOL Sure seems to be a lot of homeless kings lately.

Your kitty is just adorable too!

Thanks for sharing.

Thanks for looking, ladies. Yes, the place where the chickens and ducks went is truly lovely and the caretaker is a great one! I'm going to start trying to entice her to build a pigeon enclosure .. no free flying where she is .. way too many hawks.

Oh yeah, a pigeon coop would be perfect. Hope you can convince the owner of that wonderful place to build a pigeon coop.

Thanks for the replies, everyone, and to PigeonVilla for the breed ID suggestions. I think PigeonVilla may well be correct in one of the two suggested breeds. I posted a pic of the bird to the LAPC folks just now and will let you know what they have to say. The bird IS banded .. sort of .. a white tie wrap and a yellow tie wrap .. not too helpful!

PigeonVilla is right! One of the LAPC experts has confirmed PigeonVilla's ID of the red and white crested and muffed pigeon as a Saxon Monk.

Great photos! Tink looks so content. I noticed that Muffin has a dark eye and you mentioned her coloring. Wonder if there could be some Damascene in there -

The red and white one is a Saxon Monk mix, as they do not have crests. Saxon Priests are double crested

Muffin looks like an Ice Pigeon or mix of one. I can't tell if that is ice and stencil, or just an andalusian. It could also be reduced. In those cases, it could be just about any breed.

Nice pix. I'm beginning to like chickens just by your pix of them. The cat looks content with the yellow blanket. Nothing like seeing a cat happy and content.

Thanks, Becky. I think you are quite right on both birds. I will keep trying to get an accurate photo of Muffin as she really is a stunning bird. Muffin trapped into Ellen Walley's racing pigeon loft a few years ago .. is not banded .. and was brought to me because of her very unusual coloration/markings as opposed to being released as a feral which Ellen didn't feel she was.
