    Yes you could keep a pair or two in this pen. Make sure you get young unflown birds if you want to fly them because once pigeons are flown and know their area they will go back to that place forever thus the name homing pigeons. Pigeons breed readily and fast. It's a very addictive hobby [​IMG]

    Quote:Thanks! Are homing pigeons friendly? How big do they get? If I dont want babies, can I get 3 females? Would they be happy? If they are happiest with a mate, I will get a pair.

    I wouldn't say friendly as cuddly but they will associate you as food provider. Girls will pair up and so will males. You can always put fake eggs under them too or just end up with a bunch. [​IMG]
