If you have 20, you might as well have..........I'm afraid to think about it!

Do they get along well together? Or are they separated? What do you feed them? Do they make much noise?

Maybe you train them to use a litter box! Whistling

Do they let you handle them?

They get along fine! The new rollers will need their own coop, just because they can eventually get let out. It's a 2 month process though before they can fly here in their new home.
I feed them the same wild bird feed that I feed the wild birds in the feeders...so no extra expense.
They aren't noisy...just a lot of cool cooing going on, especially when they're happy, or excited, or just because. I find the cooing very relaxing...like a cats purr. Maybe I'll take the camera and make a pigeon noises video next time I feed them. Big Grin

They're pretty tame because they were being groomed for show. Every night if they stay out past dark I go out, pick them up, and put them to bed.

What funny birds!
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.
