    Just to update one fact I have heard that in Taiwan a pigeon sold recently for around a million dollars
    Check out the link:



    P.S. Then again it could have been the same bird in "CANADIAN DOLLARS".

    If true, that would beat the record I was familiar with, which I think was a racing homer sold for around $130,000, which I think beat a previous record of around $75,000.

    Hokum, I don't mean to hijack this thread, as this is irrelevant, but I notice how the guy in this video holds the pigeons in this video, and they are calm. My squeakers are not so calm when I hold them. Is there a special way to hold them such that they will be calm? Can I do anything to make them more comfortable around me?

    Excellent. I am glad you say they are naturally aloof, as that has been my observation with my squeakers, and I was hoping there wasn't anything I have done to make them afraid of me. I have been putting a large tub of water in there for them from time to time so they can bathe and enjoy, and they love it! It's fun to watch them enjoy things like that.

    My white German racers were extremely clingy and would follow always on or underfoot if I was in with them or them out, one round followed our truck for miles when we went to town stopping on truck when we did and as got to busy area they went home. I kept them fed healthy etc, they just loved me for some reason. I've had roller lines like this too, where some roller lines and Homer lines always cagey etc hated attacked me.
