Some features of birds
At cultivation of the described birds it is necessary to consider that they are strongly tied to the nest, the partner, the house where they for the first time were born. If the baby bird became on a wing and took off from the nest, then he can be the whole day far from the house, but for the night will surely return.
If the owner accurately did not allocate to couple of bakinets of the place for гнездовья, then birds will twist the dwelling in any pleasant to them the place. At the same time they use any improvised materials. When pigeon laid eggs and sits on them, it is almost impossible to transfer a nest to other place.
It is necessary to consider that the female of bakinets can put eggs almost whole year. Even fading, it often artificially delays process of loss of feathers, and then takes down egg. It is necessary to clean a nest in time, to strenuously feed pigeons, then the issue will have good health.

The young pigeon makes the first progress during the game, for example, sits down on a tail, previously clapping wings, and then again passes in years. Then it begins to carry out somersaults. The owner should not interrupt it and, whenever possible, it is not necessary to allow it to stop a training independently. Gradually time of fight will increase. The shortest term of training of a pigeon – about 15 days, but everything depends on a genealogical bird. Most often trainings continue within a year.
It is recommended to monitor (whenever possible) flight of the pet , especially in the period with the end of summer to spring of the next year as during this period pigeons are attacked by hawks. The trained pet can easily leave from a predator, having applied "column" with clicks, somersaults and horizontal fight. Usually in a year in claws of birds of prey from 30 to 40 bakinets perish. Therefore fans should fill up the dovecots nearly an every year.
