    if a person had a slow producing giant breed, would it increase production to take their eggs & put them under a pair of captive wilds or homers instead? would the foster parents be able to raise the giant breed chicks to eating size effectively?

    Yes, I don't have utility pigeons but I have heard good reprts about using hommers as pumpers.
    It all depends of the foster parents abilitys some do better then others.

    how common are the "gay" pair bonds? how good are they at fostering?

    Homosexual pairs are common when there's no other choice. They will raise the babies like any normal pair. For the best results, put one egg per foster pair.
