Keeping homing pigeons for pointer training.

Anyone here keep homing pigeons for training pointers? I’ve been doing some research and I’m looking for more resources or personal experience from people that do this since I don’t know anyone that does.

I’m looking to get 15-20 birds so that I can train my single dog and probably loan them out to a few friends as well. Buying quail all the time is real expensive, but my dog (a rescue so getting a late start) needs to see a lot of birds.

Homing pigeons

General info:

Pigeons spawn commonly in villages and less commonly in forests. They make cooing sounds and have a two variants: common grey and rarer white, in breeding(later explained) there is 50-50 chance to the baby's color depending on it's parents colors respectively, upon death they drop 1-2 feathers. Pigeons can tamed using seeds of any kind and perched on shoulders like parrots. they can be bred by feeding two with sweet berry activating love mode.

Homing mechanic:

When a tamed pigeon is fed with any type of seeds, it sets the block below it as 'home block'. Home block can be changed by feeding again. Similar to the bartering mechanic, when given a written book item, it's skin get a note attached to the leg and it start to fly quickly to the home block, when it reaches it stop there and can right clicked to get the written book.

Bird cage item:

Bird cage is a new item used to transport birds(parrots and pigeons) easily. Similar to capturing fish and axolotl with a bucket, you can right click to capture a bird and right click to free it. Makes life easier. Crafting recipe:

Feedback/ideas are welcomed.

Edit: MadoctheHadoc's idea, you can also give pigeons to carry and transport a bundle.

How do you make a homing pigeon fuck off?

I realise that sounds like the opening to a joke, but alas, it is not. Really hoping someone on here knows about pigeons.

On Tuesday morning, we discovered a homing pigeon on our first floor window ledge. It had tags on its ankles but we couldn't read them. Rang a homing pigeon information place and they said that sometimes they need to rest for a couple of days so to give it water and bird seed. So, fine, this pigeon with ankle tags can use our window ledge as a hotel. No problem.

This was fine. It spent two days asleep on the window ledge. Occasionally it would have a look around but it was fine. We named it Pierre the Pigeon and let it have it's rest.

But now it's got some energy back, it's just flying from one room's window ledge to another and back again. It's tapping its beak on the window. My dog is going bonkers barking at it every 10 minutes. There's bird crap all over the window ledge. I've had enough of the pigeon now.

How the fuck do I make a homing pigeon fuck off?

UPDATE: Pierre the Pigeon has finally fucked off. We held out on getting a crow, we held out on Pigeon Pie. We resorted to politely asking him to piss off and closing all the curtains to shut him out. We're crossing our fingers that he does not leave a glowing review on pigeon trip advisor

Handsome homing pigeon visitor. Hung around for 30 min. Tried to come inside a couple of times. Left him some water. Felt like I was able to communicate with him after watching the documentary The Dooman on BBC Scotland. Lol Probably better than I could with someone from Greenock.
