Often still flying long after they should have reached their lofts and safety, the racing pigeons may become disorientated and as a result become lost. A lost, or stray, pigeon will be weak, dehydrated, tired and in need of food and water. Sometimes they go into different lofts.
In case of such happening, ie you find stray pigeons in your loft, all you have to do is contact the owner, whose identity you can obtain from the leg ring of the bird, who will arrange and pay for all costs involved in getting the pigeon from you.
The Chennai Homing Pigeon Fanciers Association (Ring Prefix - CHPFA) had issued the ring, the number would be of the form? example CHPFA 10 9876 We thank you for caring.
