Would just like to give a bit of advice to our new starters especially Paul, Saul Christopher and Mizmo.

you have all got youngsters now coming out of your lofts and starting to fly well.

just a word of caution. With racing now starting officially from next weekend and training races on today don’t let your birds out on Saturday mornings. The evenings should be fine. What you don’t want at this stage is your youngsters getting caught up in a batch of race birds and taken many miles away. These batches could well be going through in large numbers and at speed. 

Also be aware that the same could be true for a Sunday if the weather hasn’t been good on the Saturday and races have been held over.

Excellent advice, Andy.

Flying your pigeons on race morning is always a bad idea, but this year it will be a terrible idea. Birds going everywhere {blue}:shocked:  

Thanks to Andy for thinking to post that.

 

Good work.

Excellent advice the best of us have lost youngsters by the boatload with a simple mistake or believe that there’s non3 comes over your way only to get wiped out ike this 

youngsters are a precious commodity Andy take months to rear and educate so here’s a rule that 100% applies and I’ve liberated them in the street many a time after basketing for training and changing my mind due to weather wind or just unsure 

 

IF IN DOUBT LEAVE THEM OUT !,,
