|Comment||GOOD ON YOU STACIE I really impressed getting a reply in about an hour (all the way to Australia) We dont have luxuries like avian vets in this part of the world so your advice is much appreciated. Our visits to America in past years should have prepared me for such good and immediate service. Cheers Peter Bewg|
I can answer questions related to health, care, behavior, and breeding. If you have an emergency situation, please take the pigeon to a veterinarian with avian experience. Unfortunately, I do not know much about actually racing pigeons, but I have shown exhibition king pigeons. *To learn more, visit my blog:
I have raised pigeons for over 15 years now. I got started in the hobby by rescuing an injured feral when I was 6 years old and successfully rehabilitated him. From that feral, I actually realized that pigeons were great companions and I had dismissed any previous misconceptions I had heard about them.
I have focused my attention to the show king although I do have a few racing homers, utility kings, and MFC helmets. I no longer breed and show my pigeons at the moment, but I would like to continue with the hobby.
