East tn here.. Interested in eating breeds as well. Pigeons hatch and raise quail well. They even feed them, but its nasty watching.

keeping assorted bantams and standard chickens..    pigeons: "white dove release" racing homers, flying flights, flying birmingham rollers, parlor rollers, parlor tumblers, "coop tumblers", Chinease owls.

    Looking to talk to others who enjoy our pigeon/dove hobby.  Also looking to talk chickens, especially black bantam true rosecombs i hope to have again someday, as well as silkies, and...

Wow this interests me.  How much do the squab weigh when you take them for food?  I am raising pigeons just for fun but it would also interest me alot to add some for meat as then it pays for itself. :)  I garden and have chickens. Providing home grown food is a good thing. Right now all my pigeons are just for beauty.  

  I have considered rabbits for meat but not gotten into it yet.
