Yeah they are battering against the wire when I whistle at feed time. 

I left one of the breeder boxes open and there is now 2 eggs in it 😂🥚

Can you lock a pair in the box? You won't be able to easily rear youngsters with the adults on rations and you won't get the others back in if you feed a lot.

 I've found dogs like pigeon eggs too 😉

Out in the settling cage tonight. Had an hour out and all back through the Bob wires to be fed. 

One was called tucker but it escaped after 2 days and disappeared....so the white hen you gave us is tucker2. Then there is boggle and the big cock bird is vulcan.  You know what my wife is like,

Next time the rest are going up throw one of them as high as you can and keep the other 2 in, once you get one flying then add another etc. They get unfit or out of practice and just don't want to get

Wheat as a main feed when flying.

Couple days theyll get a condition seed and or a pigeon mix .

 

Winter I usually feed breed and wean. Plenty of protein 

Dont forget grit and mineral
