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.

It doesn't matter what type of pigeon you fly numbers will be to your advantage, like 15-20. And of course they wont be flying until they are trap trained and trained to come to a feed call so you can get them in the loft. Lots of reading and learning to do before you invest. The right loft and training method is crucial to keeping them safe and healthy for your business to become profitable. All the info you need can be found here. Good luck.
