    I have in my possession a rescue pigeon who is quite flightless. I've already told his story in these forums (you can find it here )

    Since he and I likely have a long future together, I'm interested in taming him as much as I can. Trouble is, I don't know how.

    Can someone please lend me some words of wisdom from their experience and/or expertise?

    Failing that, can anyone direct me to a good guide online, or perhaps some good book titles?

    It just takes time and patience,handle it as much as you can and food is a great motivator.Safflower seed and raw unsalted spanish peanuts are a favorite.
