Andy I really didn't mean to cause any offence. If i did i really apologise. i just wanted to show a different view point.

I agree that flying in a big group should be far easier. Also apologies as thought it was 5 races but still 20% more races and possibly more training. I'd also suggest you wouldn't chase them away with brooms to get them to fly so your losses will be less than theirs. :-)

I was just trying to make the point it doesn't seem to me to be that far off. Whilst everyone else is saying how terrible olr returns are.

I mean trying to look after and race 6000+ pigeons. It's a hell of a job to take on.
I don't think you have offended anyone Chris so no need to worry about that mate.
I for one admire your passion for both figures and the sport mate. I think OLRs do have a place in our sport especially for the likes of you and George who have no other way to take part in racing. I do however think that the management of these birds leaves a lot to be desired. These organizations need to be looked at and governed better, the welfare of the birds is overlooked in the name of money. If they kept the numbers down and limited the entries per person you might find the quality of birds sent would improve and they would be better cared for. The NCC olr is much more manageable number.
Don't stop doing what you do mate it is both fascinating and admirable.
Best wishes fella.

you must take into account what I have said before your likely to have more losses in a loft if ybs are brought in some fanciers breed birds that do well in olr for me the reason there birds settle in better if you have a bird that does well in olr there the ones you want the only problem I see you have to have pedigrees with birds going into olr would .like to see this rule removed

Yeah, thought this a bit strange but it wont be a problem for me as my 4 will be bred off stud bought birds for which I have full pedigrees. I would imagine in some cases the old saying would apply 'Paper will not refuse ink' :D

I have had the email to confirm what Chris is saying, Chris is looking to bring the birds back and not put them into the auction. So he will not need to send pedigrees.
