    I can understand why heavy breeds, or fancy breeds with extra feathering and strange shaped bodies can't fly much...... BUT..... How come some normal shaped light breeds seem to only want to fly to get from A to B, many don't even seem to want to leave the coop / loft.. and will fly straight...

    Hello! The pigeon in this image has been living in my balcony for 2 weeks. It uses to fly away for short periods during the day, but it is always coming back for food and sleep. Can you tell me something about its breed and gender? I suppose it is a female.

    Hi All, I am very new to pigeons. I picked up a few from a guy today do you know what breed they are? Are the ones without the feathers in the back females? Do you know if I can get them to breed? The guy told me they were cull birds? Not sure what that means.
  16. Training and Behavior
    I was wondering if it was okay if I kept two breeds in one loft? I was thinking of a homer and a fantail, both adopted hens. I've only heard of people keeping multiple pigeons of the same breed... :confused: I don't want any fights for my future birds because of their differences, haha.
