Title: Pigeon Business similar to Gamebird?
Post by: OngBoCau on May 29, 2006, 08:44:38 PM
I was interested in propogating pigeons for commercial meat & hunting outlets. I've trapped wild pigeons in the past for Buddhists to do prayer releases, but trapping rates have plummetted. I've found some willing buyers in the fresh-kill farm trade & the bird dog training industries with interest in buying birds regularly.  In Texas, we have poultry licensing requirements for production of edible birds.
Are the production concepts & licensing requirements the same as for quail/pheasant/chukar business?
Does anyone have links where I can find out more?  Thanks!  Chet
