Free ranging during breeding?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 

Can I free range my pigeons during their breeding season? I let my pigeons out every day around 10am and there out all day till 6pm. Will this interfere with them laying there eggs? I just saw them mating on the roof. So should I lock them up or can I keep flying them and they'll just do there thing and lay there eggs. They've already built their nests.

 

Thanks in advance!!!!:)

If you are not afraid of predators I would say no problem.

Hope this helps,

Check out this link leads to a Video interview on me and my grand daughter done by a local TV Station on our WHITE HOMING PIGEON loft:

If you are not living for something;

You are dying for nothing.

No problem.... so long as predators don't get your breeding adults.. then you would be left with orphaned chicks.

I would like to add that the most dangerous of predators would be hawks, if you have those in your area i would suggest you lock them in till breeding stops
