Free range poultry at Loblaws

There was a pigeon swooping around inside the Loblaws on Rideau Street this afternoon.

This was not an advertised special.

As I far as I could tell, I was the only one who noticed it. I've seen little birds like sparrows in grocery stores before, but this was the first time I've seen a pigeon.

Maybe it's time they brought in some hawks or falcons.

Or coyotes. It'd be a change of diet. And think of the sport!

Don't you mean free-range fowl?

Hi Nancy,

I have to admit that I didn't know that "poultry" might not be an appropriate generic classification for pigeons.

But when I look at the definition of "fowl", it seems it might also not include pigeons, because pigeons are not gallinaceous birds.

I apologize to anyone who came to this page searching for a posting on free range poultry.
