    As you know, for a while I've been wondering what could possibly be wrong with my Moody goose. At first, people suspected she was slow to grow, and therefore she was smelly and low weight. Then, it came to genes... Could she have been, instead of an embden, a roman/embden cross? And perhaps...

    A local flock live under a nearby bridge- A neighbor must love pigeons, because she often pours large bags of birdseed under the bridge, so those pigeons never go hungry- Can you suggest a food that is both healthy for the feral pigeons, yet will help them plump up so they can endure the cold...
