This is the third day that I have let the pigeons out into the world. This time all 8 managed to leave the loft. They flutter around a little but are still mostly just hanging out on my roof and doing very short flights. It does seem as though they want to be together. One will fly back to the aviary to seemingly encourage the last 2 to join them on the adventure. It doesn’t take long and it works. Sally and Xavier were the last 2 to find their way out but when they did they seemed strong and confident. I am doing everything I can to be patient and let them do what they need to for now. Once they start cruising the skies and are a little older I will start correcting their behaviour and try to limit how often they hang out on the roof or anywhere other than the loft.
