can you share the steps you took to get them to come when you take them out to fly....

Daryl...thanks for providing the information on this subject. These are some very nice looking birds. I'm sure anyone interested in Valencian Figuritas will thank you for taking the time to give us such an informative post.

There so dang cute and small. I know somone who has some and he told me to watch his birds at a show because he had to go and one had feather on his eye so i went to grab it. And i thought i would squash the little thing. They are so small they could almost be a baby for a indian fantail or yet alone a giant runt.

Feed for Figuritas


Do to being a small bird with a small beak is there any concideration with feed compared to larger birds like Homers and Frillbacks?

mine eat the same feed with no problems... but they do seem to like the popcorn instead of the larger whole field corn...but they will eat it... think of how small a wild dove is, and the big honking peices of corn they eat with no problems...... just don't spoil them or they will pick and choose, just like any other pigeon...lol...

just to add, make sure the feeder is not too tall and they can reach in the middle of the feeder to get at all the grain...some of mine have to stretch and tip toe to get at some of the seed in my feeder...Im going to change it out with an open chicken type feeder with the roll bar on the top, so they can see and get at the feed in the middle.
