  11. Wild or 'Feral' Pigeons
    Feral pigeons are the pigeons we find in the streets around houses etc. right? How do you then obtain "feral" pigeons for pets? Is it not illegal or against the national wildlife assoc. to catch and keep wild animals? I think the "feral" pigeons are beautiful, and would love one for a pet...

    I am getting increasingly concerned for a local flock of mainly pure white doves/pigeons. They have lived for as long as the local pet shop keeper can remember in a derelict building at the rear of his shop.
