Ah yes but this is not the US it is the UK, I am pretty sure the laws are slightly different as I have known people who own crows and still own them they fly of course for part of the year but they come back. I am planning on doing NO magic with the crow what so ever no boxes,bags or harness just a perch.

Any more info?

Hi sperris. Granted it would not be the ideal commercial act but then again neither is Loki's but you know he does well from it.

We're 106 miles from Chicago, we have a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses

I've never really heard too much of Loki outside of his review at FISM. I know of another European act, I forget their names but its a guy and a girl with a Beetlejuice look to them and I know they do very well. As it says in Tarbell and in Showmanship for Magicians basically anyone can do an act but its the performer that makes it real magic.

I had supper tonight with the Game Warden. (Actually he was the speaker at the Exchange Club and sat next to me.) So I asked him about the status of crows. He informed me that they are not protected in anyway. There is open season on them 365 days a year with no limit in Alabama. The same is true of starlings. Crows are not considered a migrating bird.

I have had friends with trained crows. They were smart and easy to train birds. Even mature birds are easy to train. Like doves and chickens, they go to sleep in the dark. I have not seen them used in magic but I have seen them used in animal acts.

Why color a white dove black when there are doves that are black by nature?
Ok so there are a bit lagrer than your odenary javanese dove but they look realy great. They are quite common in circus bird/dove acts here in eurupe. And the same bread is also avalible in white.
Sorry no zebra striped so don't even think blendo dove trick.

Mynah birds look similar to crow. They are extremely smart and trainable. They can tal as well as a Congo. Why don't you try it. I had one as a pet long time ago.
Here is a picture of a trainned Mynah bird:
