I found one a few years back in the sand dunes at West Kirby, I managed to contact the owner but he didn't want it back, apparently if they don't come back even one time they're permanently on the naughty step. Luckily I found a nice chap in Rock Ferry who kept pigeons and agreed to give the poor birdie a good home.

If it didn't make it home it is just a pigeon, and the person whom it belong to would have no use for it. Don't think they see them as pets,sad really.

Thanks very much for advice. A very kind gentleman has collected her and is going to look after her.

They make good pies, but you need more than one!

If it has a ring, it will have a number which identifies the owner, you can report it to http://www.homingpigeons.co.uk/lostpigeon.htm who will sort out returning it.

The racers dont want them if they cant find their way home easily - returning them would result in wringing their necks instead of ringing their legs. If released immediately , they will still try and get home , but when they do its curtains ! Ive heard from rescues that they believe the best way to deal with them is to remove ring, cage for 3 weeks and feed well . After that time , they are released, food left out every day for a week , by which time the homing instinct is all but gone, the bird hangs round a bit for the easy food , and then when the supply decreases and stops ,goes off as a wild pigeon .

Thanks Venice. I think the guy who collected it is going to try something like you suggest. Very sad but it is good that there are caring people around.
