How to Effectively Train Your Racing Pigeons

1. The importance of patience and perseverance in training

Effectively training your racing pigeons is essential to maximizing the performance of these birds in pigeon racing competitions. We at the Laboratoire Colman have a wealth of experience training racing pigeons and would like to share some tips to help you achieve the best results.

First of all, it is important to understand that training racing pigeons requires patience and perseverance. It can take months or even years to get satisfactory results. It is also important to note that every pigeon is different and may react differently to training.

2. Accustom pigeons to fly away from their loft

One of the first steps to effectively training your racing pigeons is to get them used to flying further and further away from their loft. This can be done by releasing them at increasingly greater distances from their loft until they are comfortable with flights of several miles. It is important to note that this should be done gradually to avoid stressing the pigeons.

3. Ensure a good physical condition of the pigeons

It is also important to ensure that the pigeons are in good physical condition before training them. This can be done by feeding them a balanced diet and flying them regularly. It is also important to protect them against pests and diseases to maintain their health.

4. Mental training of pigeons

In addition to the physical training, it is also important to take care of the mental training of the pigeons. This can be done by exposing them to stressful situations, like loud noises or sudden movements, to get them used to reacting appropriately.

5. Importance of good recovery and sleep

Finally, it is important to ensure that the pigeons have good rest and sleep. This can be done by providing appropriate sleeping conditions, such as a quiet, dark place, and ensuring that they are not disturbed while sleeping.


By following these tips you should be able to train your racing pigeons effectively and achieve the best results in pigeon racing.
