Our birds are descendents of the "Rock Dove," which is the "Adam & Eve" (symbolically speaking) of all the pigeon breeds known today. We call them "Racing Homers," or "Homing Pigeons," but they are technically "Rock Doves." They are trained to return home to their loft from hundreds of miles away. They are watered and fed every day, which includes clean water (sometimes medicated) and given vitamins and minerals and fed a high quality pigeon feed and grit. The health of our birds is very important to the health of the loft and in keeping the birds healthy; they are treated yearly for several kinds of common diseases that can affect the birds. We take great care in handling the birds and not overcrowding them, which creates stress and sickness. Their loft is there safe place of residence.
