How do I teach my newly purchased birds to stay at their new home. All birds are about one to two years old and where purchased from lofts over one thousand miles away. I'm wondering how long I should wait before I can expect them to return if released to fly, or do I have to wait for babies to train and always keep the adults in the loft?:rolleyes:

If they are homers they will or might try to find their pre home, so letting them out is a gamble. it is best to start with young birds under 40 days old. If they are tumblers or tipplers or rollers, they need a few months to get adjusted and can be flown just around the loft.:)

ok, the homers are prisoners, the rollers can be let out after a few months, loft flown only as they might get lost if taken away from the loft.
