Does the bird have an injury on the chest?

I don't really know. I can't tell if he's picking his feathers out or if that's how he looks. Since i don't know or didn't know what kind of bird it is, I couldn't compare a picture. Thanks for your concern. Now you got me worried.

Looks exactly like my Oliver and Fran. They have a frill on their chest and head. They are Satinettes.
Very sweet birds. I call them baby dolls.

I had seen fantails before (and wondered how the heck they manage with those tails) but never expected so many other "fancy" breeds.

I also never realized that common feral pigeons were "different" from racing pigeons - I always thought all kinds of pigeons could or would "home" (led by the difficulty of discouraging ferals when they want to roost or nest in places where we don't want them)...

I get a big "d'oh" every day I read here... what I know about pigeons could fit on the head of a pin with plenty of room left over for angels to dance :rolleyes: ;)
