I wonder if they can live with chickens? Will they fly away if we open the coop door?
I think they are beautiful and I would love to have one or two.
I will watch and see if you get any advice.
All pigeon want to home, will stay put ,unless racing homer then they will want to home back to there old home..
Roosters or mean hens will sometime try to kill pigeon. Fantails would be easier for them to catch ,but most other breeds would be able to stay out of harms way, unless right out of the nest.
