Recently had to move pigeons to new location about 300 meters from their old lofts. Have kept the birds in for two months now and opened the traps of the cocks for the first time today.
Result: Straight out of traps and onto roof of old lofts.
I waited until almost dark a few came back around the new loft but disappeared again. Went to old loft, opened trap and let birds in but only half of them were there. Took them back to the new loft and fed them and locked them in. Have no idea where the others are and have looked all around for them but sure they will appear over the next day or so.
