We had a predator attack one of our lofts and kill 7 babies.
Now the adults will not enter back into the loft.
We have cleaned out the loft.
We have left the doors open for the doves to enter.
We have tried to catch the doves (at night) who have all been spending their days and nights on our roof.
These are our flight doves for wedding releases.
If we cannot catch the flock we cannot fulfill our contracts.
Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you all kindly,

I would like to thank Silvio Mattacchione (silvio-co.com) for his advise.
He said that the only way to get them back was to catch them on a dark night and put them back in their loft for a few days.
So -- last night my husband was up on our roof (he looked like the chimney sweep from Mary Poppins -- LOL). He caught all our doves except 3 (which are still on our roof this morning).
What he did was take a light towel and place it over the dove. This allowed him to handle the bird without it being frightened and trying to fly off and risking injuring the dove.
All is good.

One left to catch

Hi, An update.
We got 2 doves last night.
There is one that is a bit stuburn but I am sure she is missing her friends and will let us get her tonight.
We have put out a trap to ensure that this does not happen again.

Also, tomorrow is our FIRST OFFICIAL White Dove Release in Sudbury, Ontario Canada. We will be at the Walk for Autism event. We will be releasing 12 white doves. The children will participate in the releases. I will post pictures for everyone.
