How late in the season can you allow your pigeons to lay?

When do you separate the Cocks from the Hens?

Any advice is welcome!

Thanks,

Dean

Dean, Evryone may have a little differnt aproach than the other, however a couple of things to keep in mind are.

1. How many birds do you want to raise a year.

2. Raise only enogh rollers you can properly fly and and train.

3. Think about How many pairs you want to breed from, for how long you want to  breed from your pairs to have how many youngsters in a year, (example) I breed from 8 pairs to get 32 youngsters a year, I started Feb 14th and finished June 15th (ish) (example) Gives me plenty of time to fly the young out before bad weather, it is as important to fly the birds as it is to breed the birds.

Technically, Dean, you could breed all year long if you wanted. Every breeder has their own thoughts on this. I've bred as late as October, but as Nick said, you do want to get your youngsters on the wing as soon as possible and hitting October is when the weather starts to turn bad and it becomes more difficult!
