    Default Why are these pigeons white?

    Am I ridiculous for thinking someone might own these? Is it common for them to be almost completely white? They've been sitting above my garage the entire day, they haven't even moved, I don't know how many days they were there before I even noticed them.

    You're a very lucky guy as those two are of the very rare (around here) Alaskan Tundra Pigeon variety. Keep some feed and water out for them as the snow cover in some parts of the city makes for slim pickings for them.

    They're albino crows. Just smack them with a shovel.

    Well imagine if instead of writing that letter to the editor, she just posts on a car forum for car enthusiasts. That's Kritafo.

    Pretty sure their American Robins. I heard lots of American Robins spread herpes, so keep your distance.

    I spotted a flock of these guys (probably 20 or so) earlier this week around Strathcona. I initially though dove's because of the color, but they flew and looked like pigeons.

    Guess Speedog answered the question.

    My suggestion;

    Instructions


    -Preheat your oven to 500F

    - While the oven is preheating, take the shit hawk out of the
    fridge and pat them dry. Coat with lard, olive oil or butter
    and salt generously. Set aside at room temperature while
    the oven heats.

    -When the oven is hot, get a small roasting pan or cast-iron
    frying pan and set the winged rat in it. They will want to tip
    over, so steady them with cut pieces of the celery stick. Try
    to prevent the diarrhea beast from touching each other to
    speed the cooking process.

    -Roast the tyson chicken in the oven for 10 to 18 minutes.
    The lower end of the spectrum will give you poop troopers
    that are juicy, succulent and a little pink on the inside --
    but pale. The higher end of the spectrum will give you a
    fully cooked, browner squirt bird, but one that is at the
    edge of being dry. Your choice.

    Please provide review

    Those look to be courier and only show themselves when the Assassins are about to launch a campaign against the Templars.

    Am I crazy to say that "regular" pigeons can be white ? This doesn't seem unusual to me.

    Can you take a photo of them with a banana for size comparison?

    Spoiler:

    You're not crazy. Feral pigeons, domesticated pigeons, white pigeons, rock doves, they're all the same species.

    To be fair to Mar, they could indeed be someone's pets, I'm sure in a city the size of Calgary there's got to be a few pigeon fanciers that let their birds roam at will.

    You want to see my banana?

    They were gone when I went to work this morning but back again when I got home. Then I went to hockey and came home, they're still there. I might throw some seed down tomorrow to check if they're banded.

    On a more serious note, there can be led pigeons that are white or mostly white but they are not the norm. Same goes for pinkish rust colored pigeons.

    They're obviously homing pigeons, you're sitting on a goldmine. Put em in a breeding pen and sell squabs on the side.
