About using y/b homers for droppers - I do not know if it's a good idea.
Homers are faster flying birds than tipplers... I prefer to use non flying
pigeons as droppers and I still clip their primaries lengthwise (I cut the
feathering along one side of the "feather stem" on about five-six
primaries). That guarantees the birds will not fly up and they make a lot of
clapping sound when they chase the grain on the roof top. Have you noticed
the clapping sound attracts tipplers down too, not only the movement on the
roof top?

When speaking about droppers - you are welcome to have couple pairs of my
Botoshanis but you will have to pick them up. On Aug 19 Mr. Fekica may stop
over on his way to his vacation place - maybe you want to time your visit to
meet up here with him?
