7 Rescued pijjies * 4 Have a Forever home


I just wanted to share the seven pijjies that came home with us from our rescue mission yesterday.

Tipper, her husband & daughter drove up from Tucson (about a 2 hour drive) this morning to adopt a pigeon or two. They left with 4. *Wink*

I first want to say what a pleasure it was to meet them. Kim came by & was able to meet them as well.
Thank you so very much for offering a special home to these delightful birds & driving the distance to pick them up.

Here are the new members of Tipper's family

My name is Mesa


And I'm Gilbert


I'm Isabella & I have an injured wing


They call me BIG RED & I have an injured foot

And here are the 3 that are looking for a wonderful forever home.





My feathers are kind of silver


We've got a great view of the lake, lots of sunshine & fresh air & sure enjoy watching the outdoor pijjies

THi Cindy,

Thank you for taking the time to share these darling birds with us[after your busy day, we appreciate you going on the rescue trip and helping find homes for these lovely birds. They certainly must be enjoying the room and board, as well as the scenery.

Thank you Tipper for offering homes to 4 of them. I'm sure they will make a wonderful addition to your bird family.

Cindy, that is so wonderful that a good home has already been found for four of these little ones. They are so pretty and look very calm too.

Tell Shi I think the one whose feathers are kind of silver would be a great companion for Mr. Squeaks.

Hi Cindy,

I haven't caught up on the background to this, but I am so pleased 4 pigeons have found a good home.

The picture of the pigeons in their individual cages suprised me, the two on the left are in exactly the same cages that we use in the stage between intensive care and chinchilla cages. I like them because they are both roomy and decorative.

Cynthia

And I caught those lovely red checkers with my bare hands. In person they have a soft, opal color overlay on the red. Makes them look pink. And the silver, he looks like an angel in person. Such a lovely sheen on those checkered shoulders. He has feathers all the way down the legs, plus short silver muffs on his ankles that will grow in nicely with care.
The red bar looks a little plain in the picture, but he was so lovely he really stood out in the crowd.

The pijes are from the thread above.

Tipper and family now have the red with the bad foot and the checker with the bad wing. I'm glad they decided to take those guys, they will definately have a good home. Those two pijes were snuggled together after transport from Marys. It was adorable!

The silver one is really pretty.

Unfortunately, due to a previous engagement, I was unable to meet Tipper and her family! Cindy told me about the visit and I was absolutely delighted that they could take FOUR! Cindy's plan, is IF the others are not adopted, they will join her backyard flock. Since they ARE ferals, we do hope they aren't going to fly back across town! They have pijie paradise HERE, so I doubt if they will!

Unfortunately, IF and WHEN I ever get another pij to join Squeaks, he/she would not be able to fly. My apartment is not set up for a flying pij! MUCH too dangerous!!

Since seeing how Cindy's Malio reacted when she had a squeaker, I would not be adverse to seeing if Squeaks would be willing to feed and be "daddy" to an orphaned (not able to fly due to injury) squeaker. Since he definitely goes into daddy and mate mode, I would not be surprised if he would "adopt!" Time will tell...

The Glendale "project" is not finished...updates will be posted...

I wish there were some place we could transfer the flock to. There would be no problem collecting the majority of them. If you just look like you're going to hold out your hand, in a second you are surrounded. They don't seem to have any concerns of being captured. They're just hungry.

* That's a distant thought. There are several other avenues being considered.

** Well, actually, I do have one right now that probably won't be releasable, can't fly due to a wing injury, that will be needing a home soon.

*** When a baby is still being fed by the parents, there's no way to know if they will fly or not. When they get to the flying stage, they're usually self feeding or getting close to it & will soon be ready for release, if there are no problems.

A little update.

Tipper sent me a message that they had a safe trip home (I greatly appreciate that ) & also sent me the names they have choosen for the birds, so I'll edit my original post to identify who's who.
