I have just over 50 right now, will get up to 100ish by fall. I keep them in a traditional kitbox.Nice birds. How many do you have in your loft?
Are rollers all that you raise? BTW, how far from home do you go to fly them? Do some of them decide to fly home instead of into your KIT?
WISHING YOU BEST,,,,,,,,,and,,
I assume you are using homing pigeons. With that said, having food in there 24/7 is acceptable except during training. Feeding 2x a day is the best method and when training, you take them out just before feeding time, whether it be early morning or late afternoon.Can anyone who raises pigeons tell me if they can have food left in their loft like quails or do they HAVE to be fed 2 per day. Could be a vacation killer ;-). I am wanting them to fly back to the loft when used for training, distance would be no more than 1/4 mile. So far everything I read says that they need to be hungry to fly back to the loft and not sure if I am up for daily feedings. Thanks for any answers to a research query!
