  1. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    Do these two look ready to wean? They are 28 and 29 days old as of this post. Also, I would be grateful for any tips and tricks you use to wean your new young birds. I’m new to this as in the past I had just let my babies wean naturally but seeing as how these little guys were born and raised...
  2. Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions
    There is currently a disease going around my coop that has a high mortality rate for younger birds. It causes yellow/white mucus to build up in pigeons' throats, noses, and causes discharge around their eyes. Pigeons have loss of appetite as it prevents the pigeons from eating due to food...
  3. Training and Behavior
    Our young bird season has started,just raced our second race yesterday at 150 miles,and I was wondering if its to late to split the cocks and hens and motivate them little by little by letting them get together on basketing night and when they return from race and then splitting them as I get...

  5. Training and Behavior
    Hi I am looking at starting to keep racing pigeons and was wondering over a training season if you will lose more young birds than you do yearlings and then more yearlings than old birds? I have seen people saying they can loose up to half of their young birds in 1 season
  6. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    I had two pigeons, hatched April 2018, not sexually mature yet, and they used to live at a different house and were flown, but never taken out for a toss. I moved, and they seemed to have taken to the new loft well, although they were a little shaky on homing when I took them out, the furthest...
  7. Pigeons & Doves Wanted & For Sale
    I am not racing this year and have about 12 young birds just out of the nest that are up for grabs. Just pay for box and shipping. If you race them, I will provide pedigrees on them after you send me race results. Send me a PM if you are interested. I can break them up into 4 bird units, 6 bird...
  8. I found a pigeon or dove - now what?
    Hello! After a recent pigeon cull at the farm near my house (Cambridge UK), I found two orphan Wood Pigeons. They are now about 14 days old. I'm a new pigeon carer, but have raised 3 Rooks. I've been looking after them since before they opened their eyes (about 3 days?) and they are both...
  9. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    Morning first post on here I'm from England and have just set up my first loft, I've started with 22 Vandenabeeles from a local racer who's had really good results. They're 5 weeks old and I started letting out on Monday by Monday night I had 2 grizzles missing. I've carried on releasing all...

  11. Pet Pigeons And Doves
    Buzzy laid the second of her second set of eggs today. Sadly the second one was broken and looked like sunny side up in her food dish. I separated her and (misnamed)Fiona Jr who just cant leave her alone. I gave her a nest bowl filled with alfalfa and put shredded paper and hay next to it with...
  12. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    I have been raising homing pigeons for 1.5 years now and have been extremely frustrated with how things have gone. I originally bought squeakers when I got into the raising homers and needless to say, when I let them out of the loft they never went back in. After that endeavor, I bought adult...

    Do other fliers mix old birds with young birds when taking them down the road? I have not done this I only take the young birds by themselves 1 mile, 5 miles, 10 miles, 20 miles, and 40 miles. I then release them with my mentors YB 2X 50 miles and once 80 each week until the races start.

    I thought I'd share this story with folks here and maybe get some feedback on what I could do differently with my loft or flight training. This Wednesday I had 6 young birds ready for their first flight out of the loft so having only fed them in the morning, I opened the aviary and let them...

    Pox vaccines made in the US has been stopped. Foy's Pigeons has a 2-1 vaccine for PMV and Pox. Has anyone used it and what were the results? What are all the other racers going to use now that the Pox vaccine is unavailable?

    I let them out at noon and it's 5:00pm and they are still out, they have been flying around my house since I let em out, finally they went up on the roof (2 story) and they've been up there the last hour and a half. They have been fed, I think that's the reason why they're out. If they don't...

    I am loosing over 50 percent of my young pigeons to a disease. All the adults are healthy... lay eggs and raise squabs with no problems. Young birds leave the nest and get weaned.. then independent... still no problems. But a couple months later some of these young birds will suddenly get...
