Pigeons for dog training

I'm looking for a few pigeons to introduce my pup to live birds. Any idea on where to find some? I live in Holland and have been looking for some , but have had no luck. Would also be interested in quail, pheasants or ducks, but looking for pigeons because they are a bit cheaper. Thanks for any info you have.

I bought from a guy off of craigslist. He sets his traps on gas station roofs. Wouldn't be a bad investment to buy a trap and talk to a few local business to see if you can place your traps.
its nice to get homing pigeons that are 4 or 5 weeks old. after about a week in your coop they will bond to it and stay for good. if they fly away during training they will come home. plus they are tough birds and handle retrieving well. my young cocker is a wild man and he never killed one of my pigeons, had hundreds of retrieves. hawks/cats/etc that is another story.
Curious if I could also get that contact information?
I paid $5 a piece 5 or 6 years ago each. I bought four, my daughter named one, so being kind of heart I let it loose. It hung around my house and garage all summer.

The guy that sold them to me had pigeon traps and caught them mostly on top of gas station roofs that are above the pumps. I see price is around $10 now. You can find some sellers at link below.

You can get all you want with one of these and some cracked corn.
