I am thinking about adding pigeons next year and I have been doing research on them. And there are some questions I can't find the answers to. And before I ask any of them, I apoligize if some seem like they have obvious answers or if they seem silly. I am used to chickens. I raise, show and breed SQ chickens. I also like having them as pets. Also I don't know if this will help you answer any of my questions, but I am wanting to get fancy breeds. How well do pigeons do with snow and cold? I live in Indiana and played on build little hutches with an attached flight pen. We have some pretty ruff winters so I wanted to make sure. Can I keep multiple females with a male, or would it be best to only have one with a male? Can I house multiple females together without any males? Can I house multiple males together without any females? If I only have a male and a female together will the female get overmated? Ideally I would like to house in pairs. How much housing area does a pair need? How big does their flight pen need to be? Is there any good pigeon mixes at Rural King or TSC, or should I just make my own? How much feed do they eat? I would like to show the pigeons I get so, I am going to be getting from good sources. I show my chickens and know what to look for in chickens, but what do they look for in pigeons? IS there a SOP for pigeons? Can pigeons get lice and mites like a chickens could? Do they need bedding? Would sand work? What should I use for feeders and waterers? Are pigeons good pet in general? Like I have some chickens that would love to be your best friend until they die and then I have ones that don't want a thing to do with you. Is that how pigeons are? Are they easily tamed? Do males or females get aggressive like roosters sometimes do? Anything in general about pigeon behavior? I would love to see pics of your set ups. Including feeders, waterers, housing, flight runs, feed mix, and anything else that I need to see. Also if you think you have any information I need to know to raise pigeons, please let me know.
