    Well, the worst case scenario has occurred and my two new Jacobins are both male. I didn't get the DNA test done, in fact I'm still waiting for it to arrive in the mail. I don't think I need a test now (but still willing to do it if needed). A couple of days ago the one I knew was male started...

    Hi, I have a question about how female pigeons usually interact with each other and with male pigeons who already have mates. I have three non-releasable pigeons who cannot fly at all: Philly (boy) and Newbird (girl), who are a pated pair, and Bird-Bird (boy). There is a thee-foot-high...

    Please contact your senators to please vote "YES" on the Feinstein amendment to protect egg-laying hens. We need to have a conscience as a country, and not put profit before the humane treatment of farm animals. These cages are very inhumane and cruel, the chickens cannot even turn around or...
