Just had a look at a couple of articles about tipplers, fascinating birds. Didn't realise there were clubs and competitions for these as well. They can fly to a height of 1000mtrs and stay on the wing for over 20hrs, incredible.

Ye mate ther pretty good birds no club or comps for me tho jus gt them to keep the pigeon bug goin till i could get sumwer propa to set up

Highflyers,i brought in a few West of England pied feather legged Tumblers,a couple of years ago
Nice looking birds
Broke them in,might of not bothered,they would Not Fly at all 😡
Sold them on to a fella that Showed them.
Wanted a couple of pair to take my youngsters into the Stratosphere LoL

Indeed ...my uncle had a couple of pair he used to let them out with his youngsters Smile

They look like a nice pair. I haven't ever used droppers or kept fancy pigeons of any description. If I ever needed to get young birds down onto the loft, I found a quiet old hen let fly to the loft done the job.

Its getting more like a catwalk. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2015/feb/27/pigeon-fanciers-brotherhood-breeders-bio-artists

Lol it certainly is LoL they are quite nice though. Racing or fancy pigeons they are all just so therapeutic, amazing creatures. As said in that article, a friend made through pigeons is a friend for life !!! Grin
