Dus Anyone Race Pigeons

Recommended Posts

 

was going get some say 6 to start with and i no a fair bit about health and keeping just no nout about the race part. i dont no but id say depending on if the late birds are bred off strong healthy birds the young shud be just as good as a early bread

I've always found later bred young birds of a pair say 3rd/4th round are not as strong as 1st/2nd round, I reckon parents don't feed them as well after a few rounds. But some late breds of race birds who's fit and just finished racing should be bang on for you to try out

 

thanks

A few good pairs are loads better then a lot of pigeons, I went wrong when I started getting pigeons off everyone and ended up with loads of crap

Great sport / hobby to get into but alas nowadays the racing pigeon is getting massacred by hawks left right and centre, I would recommend flying doors to anybody but as I say your up against it now with the predators in the sky.
