The Dinkster ain't gonna' believe that he's adopted, you know. He's absolutely for certain that YOU are "Daddy" and so showing him those pictures isn't going to do a bit of good. And if we have anything to learn from LucyLiu, he might NEVER accept the idea.

Rallow... can you "coo"?

I thought that I might point out that I have very few feathers, and not much of a beak.

When I found Lucy Liu, like all young birds who fall from their nests she was traumatized to the nth. The few times that weve showed her other pigeons on the window ledges shes taken a quick look, then made a bee-line for her cage. My wife thinks that she is afraid of other pigeons because she assonates them with the days she spent alone and frightened on the ground, before we found her. Ive always thought that this idea gives her to much credit for sensitivity, but after learning and reading about what perceptive and enigmatic creatures pigeons truly are, hay who knows!

Kinda' low on those myself!

Oh, I think they're a lot more like us than you would ever imagine. It's really going to be interesting when The Dinkster gets a little older. She might be a little detached right now but eventually she's probably going to get more and more interested ESPECIALLY if The Dinkster turns out to be a boy. But, that's way down the road at this point.

By the way, I REALLY love that picture of him peeking over the top of his box! You need to add more pictures for us so that we can see the coloring you described.

I think I’ve figured out why The Dinkster has so many different color feathers. (Several shades of gray, white, and a little black.) Seems he’s emulating my beard!

I've added more pictures. http://cbargains.com/dw/d-index.htm

GREAT PICTURES, Rallow! Gee, ain't too proud a dad, are ya!

Dinkster looks like she (don't know why I think "she") will be a really beautiful pigeon! Can't wait to see what she will look like fully feathered. BTW, she won't mind not having a "fully feathered" foster dad at all!

You have done a tremendous raising job! What a cutie!

Will also look forward to the relationship between Dinkster and Lucy Liu! Now, THAT should be veeery interesting...

I'd say that the real "Pidgey" is coming out in the coloring--he's going to be a "red" with a white bib like Pidgey's "bowtie".

Sure looks spoiled though. Bad.

Congratulations Rallow. My favorite is the picture of her peeking out from her little towel titled "Warm and Comfy." Adorable.

Best of luck,
Linda

Thanks very much you guys for all the nice comments.

Yes, The Dinkster is spoiled, but then why not! There are so many pigeons in particular, and birds and other animals in general who get ground up in the human machine, that if a few like The Dinkster can live the good life as a well loved, and spoiled pet, then that can only be a good thing. I am disabled, my only child is out on his own, and I have lots of time to care for my two pet pigeons. It does not matter that he will be no more able to fend for himself than a dog, house cat, or other pet bird because he will be cared for and loved by my wife and I all of his life.

Folks, there are more photos of The Dinkster now and he's looking pretty close to what he's going to be for life:

So, Pidgey, does he look like mama or papa?

He's the purest blend of the two that they've ever kicked out. As you might imagine, Pidgey's a bit selfish (with respect to everything, really) about the genetic makeup of the kids so she doesn't give her husband much say in the matter. He's lucky to give 'em one lousy tailfeather most times.

However, he must have done something right this time, because he got a lot more genes in there than normal. Maybe she's finally softening up some. Whatever. In any case, The Dinkster's going to be a prettier-than-average pigeon.

With The Dinkster getting so much attention, my first pigeon Lucy Liu is getting jealous. In fact yesterday she came right out and demanded that I post a nice video with only her in it. So here it is!

Just saw the video of Lucy Liu


Rallow,

Dinkster has some talons! You better stay on his good side! As you say, he is not one to be fooled. It is great to see he is doing so well.

I just saw the video of the beautiful Lucy Liu. When you hold her beak, it seems she is making feeding motions, pumpng her lower abdominal air sacs to regurgitate food into the mouth of her mate. They kiss, stick their beaks under their wings quite a bit until they are ready to pair, then the female hunches down to be mounted by the male. I have been watching our male Wieteke and his mate Mamieke pairing often for a few days, a week before she lays eggs.

So, have you been looking at lofts for the Dinkster in Gettysburg?
