    Well my 2 origanal homing pigeons were flown but the 2 younger ones were just out of the nest when i got them.
    All 4 have been out of the loft for 4 days now and are staying here...

    I clipped their wins for a few weeks and let them out before they were fed and then put food in their loft after they were out and just kind of hearded them in until they eventually would walk into it on their own, now I let them fly around outside and they are still here!

    I was suprised that it actually worked, they now have started building a nest and the females havent left the bowls for a day or so... not sure if they have eggs yet...

    Things may change once a hawk hits the older pair. How old were they when you got them? Also, it will help a lot if you train them to a feed call so you won't have to herd them in [​IMG]

    They are 9-10 months old I was told. I am going to call my friend and see if they were trained to come in or not.
