While out over the weekend, we drove past a large sign in a person’s yard advertising, “Homing Pigeons For Sale.”
Now The Herd is fascinated with the concept because a Siberian is exactly the opposite of a Homing Pigeon. Release a Siberian and he runs away from home, not towards it. Sibe Quentin was built at Chez Herd for exactly that reason.
The bigger question though – is this a scam? if you buy Homing Pigeons from someone, don’t they just fly back to that person upon release? Isn’t that the whole point of Homing Pigeons?

Missed A Rabbit By A Hare
In a fumble of Sibe Quentin security, Typhoon almost caught another rabbit, though Hu-Dad has kidded him that he missed it by a hare.
Well, it depends on how young the pigeons are. A bird around 32 days old will aclamate to it’s new surroundings & think that this is it’s home. An older bird could be used for breeding but never released, it’s younsters would always stay where they were born & raised. I have raised homing pigeons for 40 years, they are flown out to 500 miles in races, most of the time they will make it home on the day.
