I have a new best friend and just wanted to share! Homer was hatched 9/6 with a little one who did not make it. He is the result of my egg swapping experience with spirit wings-a racing homer! I must say he is the brightest baby I've ever met. He is bold and fearless and a very quick study! He is my absolute first homing pigeon so don't have anything but fancy pigeons to compare. I love each and every one but this guy takes bird intelligence to a whole new level. Are all homers like this or do I just have a one in a million?
