The website looks good to me.  Not too busy, no text over pictures (which I sometimes find difficult to read), the menu is straightforward - good job!  Best of luck with the venture.
Don't listen to the money men - they know the price of everything and the value of nothing

Live in a cohousing community with small farm for our own use.  Dairy cow, beef cattle, pigs, sheep for meat and fleece, ducks and hens for eggs, veg and fruit growing

I like the site to, keeping it simple and easy to read is the way, just take a moment some time  to have another look at it again for a little fine tuning .

Hi @vfr400boy.     
A neighbour, in my childhood, was a racing pigeon breeder (also tumblers) and I loved joining my grandfather whenever he went over for a chat and a survey of the latest broods. They (the pigeons) all knew where their home was. 
However I also remember the release of white fantail “doves” at Charlestown Cornwall for the (long-since) recording of the Onedin Line TV series.  There are still a few pure-white fantails to be found at Charlestown dock to this day and my point is that they didn't have the homing gene and didn’t fly “home” afterwards.  I guess some customers won't really care whether your pigeons/doves head back home after their event, but my question is whether you are sure all your pigeons/doves have the homing instinct/ability?  If they don't then I wouldn't personally be happy to engage peoplespigeons.

Good question!
In all the time Iv had the pigeons I think Iv only lost 6 birds , am guessing they ether got lost or a hawk got them , they are all bred from Logan’s and bushart birds ( white raceing pigeons) so they home just as well as racers do , all my birds have leg rings on with my phone number on
Even tho all my birds are pure white I can recognise individual birds and know who will be were in the loft they are like pets to me so there safety and welfare is very important to me
Thanks for all the positive comments!
