Although not a chicken. The Texan pioneer is a meat bird. My goal here is to introduce you to the world of the squabing pigeon. We will cover my life with the birds. And go threw a step by step process of keeping the birds and housebentry. I am no grate writer as you can tell so just bare with me.
I am putting the article here because the eating of pigeon has become taboo with a lot of pigeon keepers here in America.
People soon for get how the utility pigeon helped them survive in the hardest of times ( the grate depression).
I am not doing this to sell birds there is always a demand for the Texan Pioneer. My goal is to introduce more people to the hobby of keeping utility pigeons.
In this thread I will cover how I house the birds. How I feed the birds, and how the birds are direst out for eating.
This will be a step by step process and I will work on it as we go. So ask questions if you want as we go.
Today was long, and I lost two Buff Coatchens to the heat it was a 104 degrees here today so I am beat and tried. The pigeons love the heat and cant get enough of it. I will start with some pics of the lofts tomorrow. And after I show you the birds and cover general care of the birds. We will butcher some birds this weekend. And I will post lots of pics to help us along. ( I will be posting pics of the butchering process so here is my WARNING.)
For now here is the great breed that I keep, the Auto Sex Texan Pioneer.
