AUTUMN /WINTER EXERCISE FOR THE BIRDS.


Pigeons are born to be out and fly at all times of the year. We obey the superior wisdom of nature in allowing the birds to follow their natural instincts and behaviours.This means giving the race birds liberty every day. The result is fitter,happier pigeons with an improved immune system ,and more alert brains an fitter bodies to escape predation by hunting female sparrowhawks. I avoid closed in lofts with poor air quality and the darkness system . Where possible ,many fanciers are reverting back to traditional methods with the benefits of modern feeding,supplementation and technology. The only way to really tast and improve your stock in terms of stamina and navigation is to enter every pigeon into marathon race events,ideally at International level-this will test you and the bird. There are many beautiful birds that can not hack the races,and these can be of any breeding origin and source-expert race man or stud.

WHAT YOUNG BIRDS LEARN ON A LONG FIRST TOSS?


We tossed ours from open loft to approx 60 miles. They had a good fly round ,being fit and to orientate over a wide geo graphical area. The group broke up as they tend to do and all returnees arrived back to the loft of their home territory on their own volition. This way you find the orientators and the navigators of singular birds with an independent quality in them. Many of these are birds of proven marathon breeding,and all our birds will home singly at some stage in their career up to Barcelona. Other than scoring in shorter races, i do not like group or flock racing pigeons. The outstanding specimens of any life form are all individual characters or personalities and beings. Good ybs get a bearing on home from within the brain/psyche and have a drive to roost,feed and drink in the home environs.-

FINDING A MARATHON SPECIALIST THESE DAYS


I have been looking high and low for a suitable person. The modern sport places its accent on rapid results,a quick buzz from week to week,and little sustained,long term enthusiasm. I seek a candidate who will put in a 25 year stretch of absolute dedication to race and produce a marathon family -races over 700 miles in duration. My network of contacts are having a go,so time will be the indicator of results. I have made a noble attempt to keep my strain going after 41 years of effort,yet when i perish they will be outbred and change within the hands of others. It is the inevitable consequence of egocentricity. Fanciers watch the Barcelona race unfold each year and sense the awesome difficulty of the task. However,we persist with our dreams-they make us tick!

LIBERATING PIGEONS IN SEEMINGLY IDEAL CONDITIONS


Clear ,little wind,with bright sunshine and warm air appear to be great for navigation and homing of racing pigeons. This can be a load ofd false belief and eyewash and with poor returns of the birds. More to the weather,atmosphere and overall conditions than meet the eye my friends. If it is not foggy or raining i would consider a liberation. The needs of a racing pigeon are greater than mere sunshine for good homing and racing pigeons. Convoyers often make informed and conscientious decisions before liberation with clever race control-it does not gauruntee a good race. Racing is etched in and surrounded by mystery no matter how scientific the boffins become,and i like this esoteric aspect of the sport. As i age ,time sharpens my sense of ignorance in all things great and small.
