    well, i had them in a cage in my yard, and there war a carabina type lock on the front, which screws on, and when i went to give them some food this morning, and the cage door was open, lock on the ground next to it, and pigeons, needless to say, were missing. i'm so heart broken, even though everyone says they were 'just birds', i just got them last week, and i miss my racing homers.

    I am so sorry about your birds. They are NOT "just birds". I am truly sorry. [​IMG]

    If you just bought them last week, they went back home if someone simply released them

    Were they banded?

    they weren't banded, they were still squeakers. i don't think they'll last too long, they were either white or black and white.

    Thats really bad news, seems like theres more and more thefts happening all the time... I had a bunch of my birds stolen a few years ago, turned out to be a friend and bird breeder who lived not far from me, can you believe that?

    Sadly enough, when pigeons are stolen it's frequently the guy who was in your yard or the person that you compete against.[​IMG]
