yes mate pair up easy can rear there own young no problem i only used to rear one per round to keep my numbers down  ,, they need a bit of space and a bigish nest box they tend to stay together when there sitting and rearing ... they dont fly to far but will go out onto a board i had a little flight added to the side of the loft i used to put nesting material in there to keep em busy i`d feed em in the flight as well to try n keep em fit they are lazy sit around fookers but good fun to keep ...

Go for it. I was given my first pair off a local fancier nearly 35 year ago. I really like them. Easy to keep, don't need feeders and some lovely colours.

My experience of them was much the same. I was only a teenager when I had them and used to wean the youngsters and chuck 'em in with my racers. The racers used to shoot off on a fly around and range well out from the loft, the Modenas would never go more than fifty yards from the loft before they'd either came back or landed on a neighbouring roof and sit there looking very pleased with themselves. I had a big, old dopey Gazzi cock bird that you could pick up anywhere he was, inside or out, and I used to use him as a dropper on race days. I really miss the pigeons. 

mine used to walk rather than fly .. i`d like some now but i like my holidays to much and would`nt want to burden anyone with feeding em

Do you fly them out rob ?do they bring other pigeons back to the loft. ?

 

I fly them out mate yes. When I kept them in the past I picked up a few stray birds with them and they also used to bring back my missing rollers. 

 The ones I'm flying now im trying to catch ferals with and they have brought a few back but not into the trap box yet,  im hoping that changes once the breeding seasons kicks off. I had a feral squeaker with one last week.
