I have recently got some homing pigeons and I know very little about taking care of them. I know the basics like food, water, shelter and how to use them for training my dog. I have experience using someone else’s birds. But I am not sure about breeding or if there is any special care they need? I have a good size loft with nesting boxes and I know I have at least 2 males out of 6 birds. Is there any type of bedding (like straw) I need to put in the nesting boxes for them to nest? At what age do they start breeding and is there any type of special supplement I need to give them? If there is a good web site I could go to get info that would be great or even order supplies? Thank you for all your time!
