BB’s LOFT: Homing Pigeons – new feature for families visiting the farm!Jeff Bondy
Our 8 x 8 x 6′ high loft sits in an old brooder house here on the farm; housing a small flock of pigeons that visitors can see, touch, and release. Together we learn about these amazing, intelligent birds.
Noted for their ability to fly long distances, they can reach speeds of up to 90 mph. Our breeding stock came from Northstar Doves near Lacombe, AB. We now have a small number of mealys, pies, and gray bars – beautiful, as well as brilliant.
