I got a beautiful white homer/racer today. Big bird, not flying for whatever reason.

Band number

FCC 2008 09766

Never saw those letters before.

It is FCC for sure and not other letters and numbers other than what I posted.
If he is from Cuba, guess I have another one up for a good home.
Oh boy, so many birds...

Gosh, I hope the bird is just run down and needs to build up his strength. Does he show any other symptoms beside not flying, what does his poop look like?

I can't imagine why these owners make it so hard to locate them-if this is a private band,and near impossible to trace??:confused: Perhaps they don't want to be found???

If the bird could only talk.....but then you would need a translator if he is from Cuba. Sorry...couldn't resist.

I can help you with the translation, I speak spanish, so we just need to wait and see if he finally says something :)

I really hope you find the owner or someone that is able to adopt him...

Thank you everybody. Thanks Terry. Maybe he can teach me spanish, I do need to learn it down here.
Makes it two non-flying birds now. The AU bird is not flying either.
I hope they recover soon a I am REALLY out of room. Had to go buy a cage for this guy.

I also received a very handsome Pouter, gorgeous bird and very tame.
If I have some time tonight I will post some pics.

I hope he's doing better. :eek: Please save the pouters to send to me, I've always always wanted some. :D I do love them, but of course any of your birds would be at home, non-fliers, non-tame, blind, bald, whatever; all are loved. ;) Do you have any good thrift shops around you? We have some that are just as expensive as a regular store, but I do have one that I can find things to make cages with when needed usually. Even like the playpen I found for $10, or sometimes they have kennels or even cages. I'm sure you know that but maybe you hadn't thought about the playpen idea, best in-the-house cage I've used so far. I just put some mesh across the top and a board and put another cage over that. Even old, simple desks that are just a rectangle, you can put wire on the front and back and make a box cage that would house a few, and then stack more on top of it. Just things I've done lol that were cheap and utilized space.

Good news on operation loft building: I posted on Craiglist a few days ago asking if anyone had wood they wanted to donate to me and today I got a response from a couple who has parrots and they said they put a bunch of "gently used" wood out front for me to pick up, that would be appropriate for loft building. So I am borrowing my dad's truck in the next few days to get it and hopefully (fingers crossed) it will be useful. Got three boxes of nails last night as well as a little drill just in case I decide to use screws. Now I just have to go wrestle the table saw out of the garage and start planning life with three fingers and a thumb. :cool: Good luck with the new ones.

You are so resourceful, MJ.
Of course I save you the Pouters. I found they are awsome birds and tame.
I have no thrift stores here that I know of, but I know of some in Broward. Never thought I could find pigeon stuff there.

The new white bird is flying and very well too.
