Billy the pigeon came to us as a stray, so we’re not sure about any of their history or true breed. We know Billy was a pet, as they are hand tamed and have their wings clipped.
We are not pigeon experts, but our research has led us to believe Billy is a juvenile wood pigeon. We are not sure of Billy’s gender.
While Billy doesn’t exactly love being handled, they tolerate it very well and have the potential to blossom into a very loving bird. Billy will let you scoop him up and give him head scratches and will even perch comfortably on your shoulder!
Billy is looking for a home with pigeon or dove experience, or a well researched new pigeon guardian.
