I have a rescued un-banded pigeon (I think King pigeon - any ideas?) that was purchased from a gun dog trainer, rescued by someone else (from a situation where he would be used to train dogs), and now is temporarily living with me. I am seeking a good home for him. I am in St. Paul, Minnesota. Please help!!

No gun dog trainers...only good kind loving 'forever' homes please!



On a hot day...

I've had him or her (not sure how to determine the sex? I was thinking a he as his cere is pretty large) for about two and a half weeks now...and yes, he is beautiful! He is confidant, yet still somewhat fearful of people and grunts if you get too close. He's getting more comfortable and confidant though. I really want him to have a good home.

Does he have any health issues? I might be interested in getting him but still not sure. I just got some homers not long ago and not sure how it would fit in with them.

I cannot see any health issues with him. He appears healthy, is a good weight, droppings look normal, eats well, etc.

Are you for sure it's a King???...

I have a King and a Homer... and funny cuz from the top photo it looks like a homer but the one in the tub makes me think King... Do you have a weight on it??

Brian, there are many members who have been successful at mixing the Kings with homers, most Kings are very docile... and very laid back temperment. They have to be prisioners but they are super sweet birds.

I thought that it looked like a homer too but I don't really know the difference:). I am sure that it will fit in good here, if not in the loft it will just be in the house. She is going to ship it to me monday so we will see where it lives in a couple weeks.

No - I'm not 100% sure if he is a King pigeon...but it's what I was told. His weight is 0.56 kg. Can you tell from the weight?

Whatever type of Pigeon he is, I'm going to miss him (though he's going to a great home). I'm thinking of getting this to remember him by: :)

That is a pretty cool light. Hopefully you will be able to have the "real thing" sooner than later:).

Thank YOU... how fun is that... I have all my birds in my bird room... our HOA does not allow LOFTS! GRrrrrrr----- next house maybe! So the light would be perfectly fitting!

Much success to all the travel plans for this little one! PLEASE let us know of his/her arrival!
