To get ready for them you need a trap door, I like the small one, and a landing. My landings are 4" boards sticking straight out so it's a trick to attach the baskets securely. Food I like is all seeds no kibble I use Purgran 17% protein with popcorn. The popcorn is smaller than regular whole corn. And they Love the red grit. That is all you need. To train I open the trap and put a carry cage, basket outside and put the food in there for a couple days so they will like to go in. Then I let them get a little hungry and herd them into the basket and put one barb down one up on the trapdoor and put the food inside the coop. Next day leave barbs down. A few days of that and then I herd them outside to fly locally. Let them be hungry for their first flights so they don't go too far. After that short distances in different directions in the car. You will love pigeons because you can take them with you everywhere you go and people are overjoyed to see them and hold them.
