    Hi there I am new to this Forum. PJ is a now three month old pigeon that I raise since she was four days old. Where ever we went PJ always came along no matter if it was at the beach to relatives or friends homes. She loves going for walks around the block with the dog. Within the past three...

    I see posts where especially new flyers are upset about losing birds to hawks and can't watch there purty birds loft fly thru the winter. I quit naming my birds due to it. I lock up mid Oct. and start loft flying Aprilish. I started spending my winters preparing for spring. First thing I do is...

    This is my first post although I have read a lot over the last few months. This has been a very helpful group. I bought 8 white homing pigeons in April, they have multiplied to 22 since then. I fly them about 3-4 days a week by opening the loft and letting them out. They never go very far...
  7. Adoption Forum for Pigeons
    Hello! I'm looking to adopt (or purchase, but I'd prefer to adopt if at all possible) a solitary white pigeon as a companion animal. He or she would be kept indoors. I'll admit that this would be my first experience having a bird, but I'd done quite a bit of research and pigeons seem like...

    Greetings PT, I'm new to pigeons, I picked up what were suppose to be homers. After a closer look I wasn't so sure. The bigger (cock) weighed 13oz, the hen weighed in at 12oz. Thanks.

  10. Loft Designs
    I have gotten new birds here and there to add to my flock over the past year. I was wondering if anyone can tell me if the birds will ever be able to venture outside the loft and return back? If so, how long do you think it will take for them to be able to do so? I have heard from some...
  11. Training and Behavior
    Hey fellows ! I am relatively new to raising pigeons so I want to relate some of my experience and ask some questions: Regarding the training, mine, after being "jailed" in a loft outside for 2-3 weeks seem to find their home easily after being released without any training needed. They seem to...

    Hello, we just learned of this hobby and have become fascinated by it. We have purchased two aviaries and are fitting mini lofts for the birds to live in. We will be building a formal loft in 2016. We are trying to see if anyone in the San Antonio-Hill Country-Austin areas (or surrounding...

    I'm a wildlife rehabilitator in Houston, TX. I have two rescued pigeons with bands. The first rescue has a blue band that reads "Sociedad del Buchon Gaditano, 2013, 203." This bird looks like a pouter. The second bird is very young and has a red band reading "Bandit, 15/03." Both birds are...

    Pigeons acting strange tonight I have 25 homers and have been loft training. They have been flying together in a group now for a few days. Never flew them yesterday because of a very strong wind. They haven't ranged yet. Let them out at about 5 oclock. They didn't seem like they wanted to go...

    A friend needed to film a "Process" for a Films class in College. He decided to film the morning routine of a pigeon racer. Something not many people have the chance of seeing. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=neqEuWQsB1c
  18. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Hi Everyone! I've kept hookbills for years and I've always wanted a pigeon! Despite how common, I love them and would love to raise one at home. My confusion though is where and how does one get a pet pigeon? Is Strombergs a good place to get pigeons from? It seems weird ordering a living...

    What is the difference between a roller pigeon, and a homing pigeon? I recently acquired a female roller, and she has paired with my male homing, is it okay to breed them?

    So my gradfather Doug Gallacher (Lofts in Highland Ca) was a racer for 30+ years, very serious and successful one too. He is still alive but aged (89) and I have a request but first I hoped to reach out and see if there is anyone here who know him. I knew many of the racers he raced with Ed...
