Hawk wise pigeons

Post by trench » March 1st, 2017, 11:25 pm

Now here is quite a statement and quite a sales pitch, found this advert the other day. Would be very interested to hear if anyone has any of these birds and if they actually are hawk wise.

These lofts do have quite a selection of rare coloured pigeons for sale, interesting to know how well they perform !!!

Yes Chris they are descended from the rock dove and I tend to agree with Chunk that it's just the lucky ones that gat away. However I would imagine that as with most animals and birds that some are possibly more aware of impending danger than others.
