Renee, hoping this is not but I did wonder. I checked ST quickly this am but could find nothing in the short time I was on there.
I agree. I had one that lived to be 14. She's been gone for some years now and I miss her every day. Because of her, my interest in pigeons was renewed and thus began all these years of rehabbing 'trash' birds. If only folks really knew what they were missing, by denying themselves the opportunity to embrace Pigeons, Starlings and House Sparrows rather than destroy them. Poor deluded people.I belong to starling talk, and for some reason its not posted anywhere on the site, I got an email and thats how I found out about it. Reti, I asked if they could be shipped and they cannot. They need food more and don't have a crop. I suggest if anyone can help to email sharon the email address is on the first post. Believe me, I LOVE my starling, and it does take a few minor adjustments but nothing that can't be done. Cat food is there main source of food, and egg laying mash that chickens eat. They sing, and some even talk, mine crows like a rooster. If anyone has a chance to have a starling, its one of the best pets I've ever had. I just received my first 2 pigeons from Reti this week, and my starling loves them already. I can't believe what a joy it is to have a starling my starling's name is baby, and I let him go after I hand raised him, not knowing any better, before I found starling talk and for 5 months he was free and he was coming back to me almost everyday wanting food living in the chicken coup, thats why he crows like the rooster. You can't help but fall in love with starlings, they are so personable, so clever, so funny, I LOVE THEM!! I offered to take one or two if someone can get them closer to me. min
