HI everybody, i live in the bay area and my question is how do you train pigeons to fly over water?
That is the magic of homing pigeons. You don't have to train them how to find home, they are already born with that ability. If they are in the proper condition, they can be released from hundreds of miles from home...be it over land, or over water...and they will come home. The main purpose of road training...IMHO...is not to "teach" them how to find home, but to get them into condition for the flight. If your birds are loft flying for several hours around the loft, then they are in good enough condition to fly home from hundreds of miles.HI everybody, i live in the bay area and my question is how do you train pigeons to fly over water?
