Is short flight training possible?
Hi. I am very new to pigeons. So new, in fact, that I do not yet have any pigeons. My boyfriend and I have been discussing the possibility of getting into pigeons as a hobby we could do together. And possibly as a side job.
We have been looking into flying white pigeons for events. However, living out in the country we know there is a problem with hawks. To eliminate, or at least lower, the loss to hawks we were wondering if there was a type of pigeon that wwould do well with short flights. Maybe they could be trained to fly to a kit box in the parking lot from the event or just a mile away from a release point?
We would love any advice you could offer. Or maybe we are just out of luck lol.
