Are they fancy or homers, did you feed call train them, were they let out hungry or full, try calling them in with feed. Some time it takes couple of days for them to come back. Try buying a five weeks old, three months that's old but it can be broken in just takes time, patience and proper knowledge before releasing them. Did You buy them from near they could've home back even if they were not flown. My dad sold a pair of unflown five weeks old homers quarter mile away and the guy released them right away they came back week later, they used to sit in nest next to the space between the roof tiles so they could see the outside.

Yes they are homers,, yes I did train feed call them,, yes that day I didn't feed them at all,, but this morning I woke up I went down and check my 2pegion were inside the loft , I guess they got hungry soon they didn't have a choice,,, I'm soon happy to see them inside my loft,,, but the bad thing is one pegion had yellow stuff coming out his month and making a coughing sound,, what is it..? Please dont tell me his deing?

But the other 2pegion I haven't seen them at all since I flew Monday,, could they have a change to come back to me since the other 2 came back,, ? Should I leave the trap door open just incase they decide to pop ? I called the guy I bought them from he said they never went back to his loft,, I really don't know him well,, soo he might be lieing or not,, but I accepted already that I loose them already,, but I still have faith they may come back to,,, soo should i leave the trap door open or not?

Ps thanks for the respond hope thing will be ok soon,,, talk to you soon buddy,, god bless,,,,!

Do preciate the respond,, but no I don't have a photo yet,, but will soon,,, woke up this morning and it look like my pegion he won't make it, but still have faith I hand feed him last night and this morning, but my work is 6 days aweek 12pm til 10pm I am soo busy I wish I have time to look after him,,, I'm soo sad I can't look after him as much as I want to cuz my work schedule,,, hope he be ok,,, I dont want him to suffer anymore,,, sad to say wish he would just past away soon,,,,

Soo losing 3 pegion out of 4, I'm down with one pegion the one return from first loft fly glad his back,, looking healthy,,,***))),,, question is would he be ok alone for couple of days or week??,, til I find and buy new homing pegion. What age should I buy to tame homing pegion? And if would be ok to add them to the pegion I have now? I'm going to buy 3 more to start out with,, hoping if I buy 1 to 2 month old pegion would be good to train them cuz I have one pegion that is train already that would help the young one to tame quicker. What y'all guys think any advice would be grateful,,,!

I live in Atlanta Georgia,, anyone know where I can buy baby pegion that I tame,, thank and bless day ahead,,,,!

Your bird is sick, and if you don't treat him, he will die. He needs meds.

This sounds like Canker..Metronidazole is the med for it.
Do you hand feed him defrosted peas? If not..you have to do it right away, otherwise you will lose him. Canker if not treated, will develop other secondary diseases.

Yes,peas from the market store, untill you buy some, you can pop in his mouth regular pigeon seeds, but small ones; it worries me that the big ones may get stuck in between the nodules and that he already has breathing problem.
Here are some prewritten feeding instruction...

You can hand feed defrosted peas. Run some hot water over them until they are defrosted and slightly warmed. Put the bird on your lap and hold it next to your body. If it helps because you are having a hard time handling the pigeon, you can wrap a towel around it or put it in the sleeve of a tee shirt, with the head out the wrist. This method confines the pigeon without hurting him and makes it easier to handle. Gently open the beak and pop a pea at the back of the mouth and over the throat. It gets easier and faster, with practice, for both you and the bird.
You will need to feed 30-50 per feeding [depending on the size of the pigeon] and every time the crop empties until you know the baby is eating on his own. After a couple of feedings, most squeakers get the hang of it, pick up the peas on their own and naturally transition into a seed diet.
This is a wonderful method for teaching babies to eat because they feel the whole food in their mouth and it’s soft and easy to pick up and hang on to.
The crop is located right below the throat and with food it fills up like a little balloon. The peas make the crop feel lumpy and squishy.

You should use the frozen peas that you defrost and warm under warm running water. They are soft, and less chance of dislodging a nodule. If you keep pigeons, canker meds is one med that you will need to keep on hand. A bird with canker has an excellent chance of recovery. They usually do get better, if treated with a canker med. But if not treated, you will lose him. And it spreads through the loft.
