For Valentine's Day I bought twelve white doves to release after a nice dinner with a lady, as a romantic gesture, along with rose petals and a violin player. I got the doves awhile back and the box was small, I guess, and well they sort of turned on each other?
Two are dead, others are bruised, missing feathers, seemingly feral, some have (very minor) bleeding etc. One has what can only be described as a "darkness" to him, and his eyes never leave me. Even when I close the box, move to a new spot and then open it again, he's still staring at me with his cold, dead eyes. I think he may be their leader?
Anyway, my question is, still a nice gesture or no? I'd hate to be out nine bucks (Also, my friend Gary thinks they might actually be pigeons? And that one is "absolutely some kind of rodent.") Thanks! Really want to make this a special night.
