the old lady gave me some frozen, fresh killed pigeons. i broiled them, salt n pepper. so much better and fresher  than chicken meat. some people call pigeons and doves rib eyes in the skies. they got a steaky texture. haha

Used to eat quiet a few in the late 70s when we lived in the ghetto of Richmond..Old Victorian home that was broken up to several apartment units. We just trapped those pigeons in the attic..

cools. I've raised pigeons before and what a lot of folks don't know is that they are some of the most cleanest and healthy birds despite being called flying rats. they are not like sea gulls and ravens that will pretty much eat anything that looks good. haha pigeons know what to eat and what not to. they know which pond or stream to drink water from. aside from them pooping in residential areas, they are very intelligent creatures.

I've never had pigeons before. But I have had doves and quails. I prefer them over chickens.

My flip friend is a flyer. He would fly his bird and they would bring back a bunch of other wild ones. 

I asked him why he doesn't do it more often cuz free meat is free meat right?  Well he told me that he did tried first but his prizes would ended up getting diseases from stray and died.  Same same with covid.  Spreading germs is no joke.

that is true..even wild birds carrying diseases or rats getting into the pens or lofts can spread diseases to the pigeons. haha then there is the worm problems and mites and ticks...only eat healthy pigeons or chickens. i made a raised loft for my old lady several years ago. I secured it with high quality chicken wire with only 1/4 inch opening...i don't know if she keeps up with the sanitizing routine i showed her once...but a few worms in the pigeons intestinal tract and ticks here and there won't hurt if anything...lol s

Little wild birds are even more tasty compared to chicken...shhh hhhhhhh!  This little kid didn't know any better but little tiny bird drummies are mouth watery savor.  Plus having a sligshot will always mean, something gets shot.

The real villain is looking at you.  The last hero was just not true.  If everything works out in the end.  It's because all things make amends.
