When I was young (8,9,10 years old) I wanted to see them buggers fly and come soaring back to my shanty loft. It never failed, homers, rollers, tipplers, they all made a "b" line back to the place I got them from. One has to remember the homing instinct of every type of bird, wether it be a robin or a homing pigeon. There is nothing you can do about it.
As I have said to many a pigeon flyer, you release a bird and he/she thinks sod it "i'm going the other way".That doe's not happen! All bird's want to get home.Point in case, in the summer I put my finche's outside.A few of them eagle eyed buggers got out, checked out the neighbourhood. Next day they were hanging around the aviary like glue. I'm rambling, but it just reinforce's my awe at these wonderful animal's.Bottom line,I agree with Lucky T. Breed a few round's. Let them fly with the satisfaction you bred them.
My mentor told me the best attribute you can have with pigeons is patience...he is right.
Just my opinion. Carl
