Racing Pigeons

Postby philbrand » Mon Sep 14, 2015 12:18 pm

Hi ,
i wonder if anyone can help. :?
I am thinking of relocating to Andalucia in the next year or so but as a keen pigeon fancier am looking for an area that still has a strong racing fraternity.
My searches on the web have proved fruitless so any help would be appreciated.
also I believe that there are restrictions on keeping pigeons such as licences etc.
Thanks in advance
Phil

A word of warning - there are hunters about and a specific hunting season for Palomas - migrating wild pigeons ... a remarkable number of domestic, homing, wild "pigeons" rock-doves, turtle doves etc also end up shot at that time of year.
Your "loft" will also have to be cat-proof and fox-proof, depending where you end up - in town or in country. Try your ayuntamento first, and if no joy try the Guardia Civil Seprona division which deals with all things environmental and animal - permits, exploitation, etc.
some web pages for you from a google search

this is from 2010:

Unfortunately most of the sites in Spanish are all to do with hunting pigeons :thumbdown: , not keeping, rearing and racing them - sorry! :oops:
