My new birds have really been fun having since last Thursday morning. I have already got them used to my whistle and food container shaking. They know I'm about to feed them when I start whistling. They all perk up and sit waiting to get to that food. This evening, I am going to begin training them to the trap. I've read so many good instructions on this from this and other sites that I feel confident in beginning. My plan is to put them through the traps 3 or 4 times this evening depending on how they respond to it. Then tomarrow, do it all over again, then the next day the same. Then next week we'll go the next step of training. This is fun! I can hardly wait to start their loft flying training. I do need to change their food a little. I notice they like some of the grain and some they don't. I've got some pigeon feed coming in along with pigeon grit coming in this week. They have been eating great and drinking well. They all seem to be very healthy and content at this point. Wish me luck.
