From the

Diary as of 8/10 – 8/18/08

8/10 – 8/17/08 – I was gone for a week visiting my family. But of course I left food and more than enough water… They had two of these big green bathing containers on the balcony floor – it was still quite hot.

Emma had laid another egg – which strangely disappeared on the same day – this time I kept it in order to make a fake egg…

Back again I realized that Willy and Joey looked awful – they have started with their moult. Their faces looked totally screwed up – real holes in their feathers  😯 . It looked awful – totally ragged. Poor guys…  (Btw – this process is still ongoing as of Sep 20 – in the meanwhile faces look “healed” again but Willy has big “featherholes” in his neckfeathers still. Now you can see that there is not much flesh on a little pigeon’s throat. So how can you kill them to eat them????? 😯 😯 😯 Joey looks better in the meanwhile – not as ragged as Willy)

Although the following photos were taken about 2 weeks later there are still the missing feathers visible – at least their “rotten” faces are back to being beautiful again and Willy has his shower cap fully back….
