Lethal culling. We advocate only 'responsible culling' of unwanted pigeons or doves. 'Responsible culling' is defined as: Taking the responsibility for finding proper homes for your unwanted pigeons. Please do not try to give us your 'justifications' for 'lethal culling', we have heard it all.

Hey,Im currently making a loft which is about 5x5 not including the outdoor rabbit cage that I am attaching to it.I plan on raising about 3 or 4 pairs in it.First would raising rollers or homers for meat be ok?I plan on keeping the parent stock but I really don't need a huge amount of pigeons so butchering them is the best option.I dont want to get kings or runts becouse when I was in poland visiting my grandfather I loved watching all the pigeons flying around in the sky.So if it is,while there raising babies and I open the door to let them fly will only one parent fly while the other is on the baby?And another question,can I keep both rollers and homers in the same loft?Im only going to be free flying them not making them fly distances.Thanks!
FIRSTLY - Butchering them is certainly not the best option, and not something anyone on this board would even consider discussing.
If you arent going to keep the young, why breed ?
Secondly, If you're buying homers, you certainly wont be able to let them free fly. They will most likely return to where they originally came from.
If however you let them breed, then let their young fly, the young will return.

Well sorry about that I should have read the rules,im getting young homers and once you let them breed a couple of times they usually will learn that thats there new home.Please don't think im cruel or heartless for raising animals for food.I do this with chickens and quail too.Its a whole lot better then eating animals that lead terrible lives in cages and what not.I think of it as a way of fresh meat and another step to self-sufficency.Now please will someone lock the thread before I get any other comments.
