Ok so if you get both breeds try not to fly them together cuz if you fly them together the high flyers will get a bad habit of flying low with the homers. If you get young homers don't let fly right away let them sit for 3-4 weeks in your loft. If you get adult homers don't fly them cuz there is a grait change that they will fly back to there previous owner. Now training them is not so hard but I'm no expert maybe some one hear will help you with that.

my friend cire345, the pair of pigeons I bought were from the same stock where I plan to build my loft. Just a few meters away from his. How then would I train my pigeons assuming I get adults? If I get youngsters, would they be swayed to go to my seller's loft which is in the same backyard where I raise them. I am very very happy that a good soul gave me backyard space to take care of my pigeons because I live in an apartment and municipal laws prohibit me from breeding and racing them.

Hi caloy
If you get youngsters, they should stay in your loft. If adults then there's a 50/50 chance that they'll go back or that they'll stay. I have two lofts right by each other and i sometimes swap a pair or two from one loft to the other. So far only one pair went back.

So if the adults have a 50/50 chance of getting back to their original loft, there is 100% chance that youngsters would stay on my loft? Or if not, how would I get them attracted to my loft? How many months or years must they be inside to tame them? Are there factors like only releasing the male to force him to get back to his mate? Or shall I always keep my loft clean? Or must I not miss feeding time? Thanks.

If you keep the youngsters in your loft for 3-4 weeks they will stay there. Just on the last week trap train them and you should be good.

No offense meant but if you keep youngsters 3-4 weeks inside the loft, there's a big possibility that they will get lost because their flight feathers are complete by that time. What I do is when they are in the loft for a week or less, I trap/train them during that time and then let them out (or put them in the aviary) to acclimate and get used to the surroundings until they are able to loft fly...
