I am looking for pigeons to train my pup with. This will be his first season. He is doing really well but I want to give him every advantage I can. Is there any place that I can purchase a dozen to get started. If not I will buy a trap and go this route.

I get my training pigeons through a local tranier(he does alot of upland)and always has a good supply.I would suggest getting with a decent sized local trainer and see if they can help...

Yel-lab,
If you live close to a larger city, try a pest control or animal control company. I work for a large nylon company and we had trouble with pigeons nesting here and there. Poisoning was out of the question so they set up live traps. I talked to the owner of the animal control company and he supplies me with as many as I want for free. They are not hurt so he just holds them for me until after work. He gets them all over the city and he's glad I take them off his hands.
