I believe the pigeon we have is a Rock pigeon. Many of you have seen him/her in another one of my threads. It's still a juvenile/young bird, but weaned. All I know about pigeons, I've learned here in the last week+. Can a Rock pigeon be trained to come back to the loft I'm currently building? Not that coming back to a loft qualifies a pigeon as a homing pigeon. I suppose my title may be misleading. I only want to know if a Rock pigeon (assuming that's what he/she is) can be trained to come home. I don't know that I would be so motivated assuming he would just fly away and never come back. I would prefer it be free, than to never be let out for fear of it flying away for good.
