Need birds for training.....  

Estimable Member

Hi all. I need a resource for pigeons or quail for training my new Llewellin pup, Zez (that's the little guy in the picture). Had lots of connections/resources up in the Adirondacks. But, not so down here in NE Tennessee. I live in the Johnson City/Kingsport area. Anybody have bird resources in my neck of the woods?

Call your local 4H club president. Tel him you will pay 5 bucks (pretty much the going rate) a bird for barn pigeons. Have a coop ready as the kids may load you up.

Before I retired from commercial training, I was buying around 200 birds each spring from the 4Hers.
