    I have this 2 year old. His name is Jimmy. Homing pigeon. He follows me everywhere.head to the bathroom sink when hes ready for a bath. He loves dropping in on customs, just an over all curious bird. And he let's me know when he's pissed. Usually after I'm gone a few day

    That's awesome. I think birds are great just so noises! I assume a pigeon would be much quieter.

    Jimmy is a Homing Pigeon. He makes a lot of noise when he gets pissed , tell him to get back in his cage.

    Not pets but I've seen a snake skin under a stack of lumber in my shop, but never saw the snake. Wasn't a big one so no worries and it was after mice, I'm sure. I had a black snake around the house for a long time. We named him Henry and he/she was fairly friendly. We decided to just accept each other. It came back several summers. The girls even got used to it.

    BOOGER!

    Booger.jpg

    His real name is Kal-El, (don't ask) but I call him Booger. And he's not my dog. He belongs to my woodworker friend that I rent my shop space from on the same property.

    He's a 1-1/2 year old Black Mouth Cur. He Literally jumps out of his skin to see me. Follows me everywhere I go, and brings me balls to throw for him. And he sticks his nose in everything I do. You can see that from the picture!

    What concerns me is being surprised by a dog while I'm running lumber through a jointer or table saw. Having a cold nose hit my leg while my hands are near a running blade is not good.

    A friend of mine rigged up a strobe light that would come on when someone entered the shop door. That kept him from being surprised while the machines were running.

    Yup, I gotta yell at him to get away from me when I'm turning, but He's learning.

    I have to run Jimmy off. He likes to sit on top of the big drill press when I'm turning.

    I still fine it hard to believe that , even though very few , customers will not come in the shop if they know he's out of his cage. Majority think he's really cool.

    I'd Love to come and see Jimmy! You see my profile pic don't ya. My personalized license plate is B1RDMN
    At one time I had 12 pet birds in my home. I only have one now, not the one pictured though.
    The only one I have now is a Red Factor Singing Canary, Bright Orange. I named him Sherbet.
    He sings up a storm.

    James I've had birds sence I was in grade school into college. I've always had an affinity for birds. My Grandmother's neighbor in Edison NJ, When I was a kid had an Aviary half the size of a quonset hut in her backyard. She must a had a 100 150 Parakeets. The birds were mesmerizing.

    Don’t mind the snakes as long as they are not of the poisonous variety...had a red rat snake that liked to hang out in the garage but haven’t seen him in awhile.
