Holding my new white homing doves?


My doves are 35 days old...will it make a difference either way if I start holding them? Will it make them more secure? Or does it really matter...my ultimate goal of course is for them to just make it back, I'm not racing them or anything like that, just want to do this for fun.

Don't make them people friendly. You want them scared of the right things when you let them out. Being white makes them a target to predators anyhow. Making them tame, will only hurt their survival chances when you let them go.
...If you're going to keep them in an aviary, then go right ahead and make them as friendly as you wish.
