How can you train older birds to stay around a new loft? I know everyone says it is risky, but what is the best method to increase success?

Hui, whats the type of pigeons that you keep ? Homers, hi flyers, fancy ?

Homers may be risky as many experienced pigeon fanciers have pointed out that there is a good chance they return to their original place. Apart from the homers, in most of the other breeds, the male tend to stay back if it has a mate at the new home.

you can if they are rollers, tipplers,or tumbler pigeons. If your talking about homing pigeons you risk death to them as they most likely will take off one day and get lost and starve to death or get disease. If you want homing pigeons you need to get young birds 30 to 40 days old.

My Grandson was given these Homers and we are not sure of the age. Maybe we will give them back to where we got them.
