White Homing Pigeons March 27, 2017 Gretka Domer Leave a comment The dark one and his mate. For three years I’ve raised white homing pigeons. I’ve sold twenty-four and there are twelve left, including three breeding pairs. One peculiar specimen has returned to my flock. He was hatched here but then disappeared for a year, only to fly back into the hen house last fall. His build is stocky instead of slender and his coloring is iridescent black-green-purple, but his wings are predominantly white. He has yet to produce offspring, but he will. If you have a joyful or solemn ceremony (wedding, Day of Peace, or funeral), and your thinking of releasing helium balloons, why not release white homing pigeons instead?
