Hi everyone,
I am trying to get a hold of some pigeons to train a retriever with but, I don't want to spend 15 dollars a piece for them and I don't wanna buy 50 of them. Can anyone help me out with this? I have not been living in the metroplex very long so I don't have a whole lot of resources. Thanks in advance for any help you guys could provide

Justin

Well...I would prefer a smaller bird like a pigeon. My pup is 11 months old and is having some "interest" issues with crippled birds or anything with feathers that aren't attached to a bumper. How big are the ducks? Teal size or mallard size?

I work in Dallas. I may be interested in some dead ones. I was really looking for some live ones though.

Catch the live ones in the parking garages around Dallas. Just use a fishing net on a pole. Go after dark. They will hold better.
