    Give them time. He is probably still looking for his mate and she may be too young. In most pigeons the pair bond is extremely strong. I always separate my breeders late every summer, and when reintroduced in Feb their joy in being with their mates again is obvious.

    I live in Canada around the 49th parallel My pigeons have stopped breading now and will not start up again until February in a perfect world. Maybe that might explain the reason you are having difficulty with your pairing. Love might not be in the air until spring.

    Yes. Like Hokum Coco inferred it may not be until this spring, but eventually he will want a new mate.
