Yes I did. I loved birds all my life, I used to keep parakeets and finches. But, at one point in my life, our financial state was really tight, and I couldn't afford them
So, I trapped some feral pigeons in our neighbourhood, fed them right, and cleaned them right up. They were great "pets", and some became lunch too.
I never worried about desease, because if you know what is what, it's safe enough.
That was a L O N G time ago, though.
