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 was 4 miles. Sometimes they wouldn't come back at night, even when just loft flying. One disappeared the other night, I assume from an owl, so now I'm left with one bird, who isn't trained very well, as she doesn't always home immediately, and sometimes goes to the ground since I mistakenly fed them there earlier on. Would it be possible to get maybe four or so young birds, and train them to home and trap with the existing older one included? Would he adjust and retrain? Or would he simply screw up the younger birds' training? What should I do if the latter is the likely outcome?

Not a good idea to let one bird out by themselves hawk bait. If he is homing to your loft you should be good as he has not left. If you get some youngsters and let them all out together you should be ok. The bird you have is it a homing pigeon? If not all bets are off.

You don't mention if these are homing pigeons or not! If they are homing pigeons there should not be a problem. If not you will most likely lose them."
