Went back again today, a bit further.

Cleared well, beat me home.

In counting heads tonight, I appear to be missing two.

Passed three falcons on the way out, that's just the ones I noticed.

The dark chequer cock who was ripped up last year, the one we glued together, went to the toss again today. On Friday he hit the board and dived in.

Today he was two hours late and very stressed. From about 15 miles.

I suspect he has healed physically, but he is not recovered from the shock of the hawk attack.

Which means he is not much use. :(

I would be getting the cotton wool out and let him recover slowly

Yep, I haven't much choice.

Not fair on him sending him up the road like this. He will only go missing.

It has been 10 months since he got injured. I wouldn't be surprised if he has lost his nerve. He was pretty badly hurt.

One more useless bugger to feed! :lol:

Could be worth breeding from mate as he clearly had the courage and desire to get home once, sadly with pigeons it often is the mental stress and loss of heart that finishes them off and this we can't often see.
Pleased to hear your second outing went well mate, hope the missing 2 turned in for you.
All the best

:D Done that already! :lol:

Bred a round from him after he was injured. Didn't especially plan on it, but he was resting in his box while he healed up, and this was the result.

His mate is a Van de Wegen x Van Wanrooy hen which was a tough little race bird.
