So wild, yet so tame

Education & Behavior • 1,826 views

I have always been fascinated by the duality of the pigeons and the strong constrast between their wild behavior outside the loft and their tame behavior inside the loft, with the fancier.

Education & Behavior • 2,821 views

I was impressed by the fact that there were no losses and 50% pigeons scored. I was also really impressed by their relationship with the fancier. You happen to have a few tame pigeons, but all of them? Brilliant. I assume that most good racing pigeons are tame, or at least don’t fly around and hide like crazy when you enter the loft. And no, I’m not talking about education and time spent with pigeons… I think it’s all in the genes, some pigeons lines are simply wild no matter what you do.
