The price of pidgeons are going up. Im selling mine (trapped as well as white racing homers) for $4.00 ea. Becouse of the Bird Flu scare/threat, depending on how one views it; this will have a big impact on the rise of all bird prices.
I have caught them in a barn with a dip net. Caught about ten in 15 minutes. I only take 10 at a time to leave plenty of breeding stock.
We were going to have a live bird shoot with 4-5 trainers last Saturday, but the guy my friend normally buys from was completely out. He said the tower shoot people were taking all he could catch and paying $4 per bird. The normal price was $3.
