The Derbyshire North Road Federation

The DNRF held its 4th young bird race of the 2022 season to report on its been a tough old season in Derbyshire with the Avian bird flu situation meaning you cannot race your old birds for half the federations members and when you look forward to the young bird season when bans have been lifted the dreaded young bird sickness spreads amongst the birds then after that you get Plagued with fat eye viruses.  Keeping pigeons these days gets harder and you start to think is it really worth it but the love for these feathered wonders just keeps you going and that’s all you can do and rise above the negativity and issues that arise,
