    Sorry for the newbie question. I'm writing a screenplay on Homer's and trying to clarify some things. Can pigeons be re-homed at all? And if someone were to buy a champion homer, is there any benefit to keeping it? Doesn't it already have an established home? Could it still be used for...

    My husband and I found a stray, banded pigeon in our community garden. She is a lovely bird, some other forum members told me she looks like a roller pigeon. I have been advised not to release her back into the wild as she will likely not survive. She is healthy and only about one year old. We...

    Hi, please forgive any ignorance as I am very new to pigeons. I recently found a weak racing pigeon in my garden, and after taking care of it for a few days we managed to capture it and report its ring number.
