Actually, none of them are 2009 birds. The ones with yellow bands are 2004 birds from Foys. The one's with blue bands are 2005 birds that I raised from the 04 birds and I used to fly for awhile. The only red band bird I have is Slip, who's a 2006 bird, but I didn't get a good picture of her. You may be mistaking the red snap band on Honey for a permanent band. Some of them are really 2004 birds, but banded with old bands. LadyBird is a 1996 bird that was given to me by another flier.You have some absolutely beautiful birds, did you raise all the 2009 ones yourself?
And I saw some with red bands and blue bands... what year are they? I only started last year so I've really only seen 2008 and 2009 bands
Pigeons in the wild, will usually live 3 to 5 years, tops, but in captivity, pigeons can live 15 to 20 yeas, if well cared for.Ladybirds older than I am!
