    I am getting into the "White Dove Release" business. I just bought over 80 white homers, and 5 doves. About 25 are adults, and the rest are young birds. They are being kept locked up for at least 6 weeks before I start training them. I am really excited about this and I hope we do a good job with it. My husband’s aunt went in on it with me. She is the business end and I am the bird lady. ( ;
    we have a facebook page already and are working on a web site.

    Do you have a settling cage on top of your loft so that they have a 360 degree view? This helps cut down on losses once you start flying them. If the adultshave been flown, they may not settle in at your place. Upon release they may return to their original home. Good luck with your endeavor.

    I do not intend to fly the old birds. They are retired to the "breeding" pen now. [​IMG]
    Our loft is not completly ready to start training the young birds. We are working on it though. [​IMG]
