The Pigeon is a 1yr old homer that I bought at a Pigeon swap, my thought is she isn't comming back. Only had them a few Months in loft lockup, to adjust. My Loft is a 8'X4'.

What was the behavior of that lost bird? Did it just take off to the sky and be gone? If so, then, yes, those bird can get lost easily. Those birds in the picture are probably staying.

Now have you observed that missing homers in the aviary many times observing and studying the surroundings? If so, there is a chance it is coming back.

It really depends on your observations. If they decided to study their surroundings, fly back and forth around the loft, landing and taking off, they usually will stay. It is those that just takes off that usually are gone.

The scary thing about rehoming is that you can't be absolutely sure. It is like a coin toss. It stays or goes. And if it stays, it might change its mind in the future and comes back to the original place. It is just that the older the birds are, the less probability that they will stay.

the x owner got his bird back... hopefully if he made it home, I think it is best to start off with sqeakers 30 to 35 days old that have not seen the outside of the loft.

I am a new member. I had a few pigeons, for a little while, back in '69/'70.
I am seriously thinking of getting a few again. I am searching for information and loft designs.

Y'all keep talking like you have seen Mader631's loft. How did you do it? I find no link to a picture of it.

I sure would like to see it.

Thanks.
