You never know what you will see around here. This is one confused chicken. In fact this is one peculiar looking chicken, too...
Oh, it's Peter Pigeon.
Peter has led a very confusing life. A number of years ago, he arrived next door during a storm which left him injured and rather bedraggled. My neighbor rescued him and nursed him back to health, but told him he could not invite pigeon friends to visit.
Peter decided that the grub was good and the company was fun, so he stayed. He is the only pigeon around here, but he isn't really lonely. Every spring he helps a couple of morning doves build a nest. He even helps feed the babies when they hatch.
He was a little distracted this week, though.
He flew around the coop for a while. Well, rather like a maniac because I was bigger than a chicken - but he calmed down when I opened the door and sent him on his way back home.
Kind of missed having the pigeon in the chicken coop today, but I think he prefers the roof top anyway.
Hope you had some fun fly your way this Funtry Friday!
