By saying having a call what are good ideas for a call? I heard put split peas in a Gatoraide bottle and shake it, so that's what I do when I feed them I just shake the bottle like ten times then feed them

That seems to be the most common call in fanciers lofts where it is easy for anyone to duplicate if a fancier has to leave someone else in charge of his loft.

 

Then again there are almost as many different calls as there are fanciers I come to find.

 

I just assumed you have homing pigeons because I can not see why anyone would want anything but.

Pigeons are super smart and can identify people from one another the same as you. They will only do this for the ones that tend them on a regular basis.

 

Over time your more aggressive birds fly to you for the LION SHARE and the rest of the flock end up at your feet waiting for spillage.
