Ok, our friend at the feed store has pigeons from pigeon king, I think 200 pair. We almost got into pigeon king this year, but glad we didn't because he went bankrupt!! For those of you that are confused, here is some info on pigeon king. You must but a 100 pair minimum to start with. The pigeons are $200 a pair or $20,000 for a 100 pair. There is a 10 year contract. The pigeons hatch their eggs, and then you sell back the 6 month old babies to pigeon king for $25 each. There is a $2000 a month income from 100 pair on average, not counting feed, etc. Well now that pigeon king is bankrupt, those birds have no real value, and most are being killed off. There are many pigeon king people in our area. But this very nice man from our feed store has offered to give me some for free. [He also gave me two hens last week.] I know squat about pigeons, but am willing to learn and would love to have between 10-20 pair. I am not allowed waterfowl, guineas were a disaster, so that leaves peafowl [expensive], pheasants [don't really want any, wild], quail [possible, but veggie head here], and pigeons. I would love to have some. I certainly don't want to cage them, as what is the point of having them. So I was thinking a small house with a wire floor above the ground where they can fly into and eat [pigeon food I am guessing?????] drink, etc. This would make care very easy. And leave a pigeon size opening in the house so they can fly loose and go where they want, raise young, etc. But if they raise young, won't thet mean I will eventually have way too many pigeons? Is this set up acceptable? These are pigeon king pigeons, that come in all different colors, white, black, mottled, blue, etc. Any other help or links would be great. What should I do?
