Well, when he or she was a baby, we took him from his parents because he was having some health issues! so we played with him a lot, and then we saw that he like parakeet food a lot, so we put it in a cup, and we would hold out our arms, and we would let him fly to it. that's how we kinda did it! but just play with your pigeon a lot and let him get use to you. and you will get it! it's pretty easy! thanks!
