    I adopted a lost male racing pigeon. I would like to get him a companion but don't want to breed them. If he's a rock racing pigeon would he mate with a king pigeon or fancy pigeon? Would the eggs be viable? Thanks.

    At the moment I have a tiny dove cot, made for 1 pair of pigeons. However in the next few months I plan on building a small loft 5'9" high, 4-4.5' wide and 3' deep. (I kept it small so that later on if I decide its working well and I can expand I can build another identical loft next to it) I...

    How does one actually breed a better quality pigeon ? I had attempted to ask the question in a previous thread, "What is a quality pigeon" with little response. My thinking has been if one is not even sure what a quality pigeon is, how then would one would proceed to try to produce one. I have...
