Lisa Cilley, of Tunbridge, has an unusual hobby. She breeds and trains white homing doves, said the Herald of Randolph. She began with 15 birds, which now number 60 through breeding. Some of her birds are black and white, but she tries to breed all white, the color most requested for special occasions, like weddings, funerals, Memorial Day parade, and the Tunbridge Fair. “I learned to train them on my own…it was really by trial and error,” said Lisa. The training process is 6-8 weeks long. All birds are banded with her phone number so they can be returned if found. Lisa claims that even though they all look the same, they all have their distinctions. Guess ya gotta be there.
