Yep, he made it through the weekend thanks to her
After the fox attack she put his cage high up on a stack of boxes in the carport and built a barricade around him with all my tools and five gallon buckets. I could barely see him.
I guess we're gonna keep him through this rainy spell and then try releasing him.....again.
After the fox got after him,y wife had me tie the cage down. We've been opening the door every morning and Petey walls down the drawbridge and hangs out in and around the carport. I finally attracted some other doves to the yard. I hope he decides to go with them.
