Hi, thanks for that. We dont have many hawks around here. I was thinking more of their ability to fly up to a dove cote from the ground and possibly how they would handle strong winds. Cheers, Pete.

English Modenas can get a few feet off the ground. They are big birds with short wings, so flying is not their strong suit. German or Italian Modenas would be much better.

The modenas in NZ would do ok in a dove cote aslong as not too many cats were around, You do not have to worry about harrier hawks and NZ falcons are extremely rare, I think, considering our surroundings you would be ok to give it a try.

Roller pigeons


Hi, I have just acquired 4 x young roller pigeons. Are they ok in a loft with an open front or should I close it in?
