    Hello,

    I would like to have a pet magpie. It would have to hand rear from being a chick so it would be pure chance to spot one that had fallen from a nest. Very quirky and intelligent, they make cool pets.

    Louisedotcom! That is cool, but pigeons are not on a par with the intellect of the Corvid family, still, do you race it? Tell me more.

    Nah nothing like that Originally it was just some random pigeon that I found in the street. I was out shopping and there was this tiny baby pigeon with a broken wing on the floor- Eventually someone was going to tread on it or something, and it would have definatly died out on its own not able to fly so I picked it up took it home and looked after it. Put it into the avery with the other birds whilst he was recovering and gaining his strength and he seemed very happy. When its wing was healed we let him go, but he always comes back, I think he likes us

    Nooo Lou, I didn't name him. But I looked after him and ensured that he wouldn't face an inevitable death; after the RSPB and the local vet made it clear they weren't interested in his welfare.
