I’ve been looking for a few fantails basically since I moved here, but they are not offered up for sale very often. Last night I saw an ad for two pairs of these lovely birds for $40. They were a mix of black and white which I was especially interested in, as usually I only see whites for sale. Today they were dropped off and there were actually five birds, so I got an extra hen for free.
They are definitely much different from my homing pigeons. They do not fly as well and have a comical, though beautiful appearance. I hope they enjoy their new living situation!
