    My very first homers arrived yesterday. I have 4 pairs, and 2 squeekers. I will probably have lots of little questions over the next bit. So lets start with: when I read 1 and a half ounces per bird, is that by dry measure ( like a measuring cup) or by Weight? The Prisioner breeders, do...

    Hey guys, first post :) nice to meet ya. Anyway, I'm a high school student in the DC area, and I would like to get pet pigeon(s), but my mom has allergies.
