Very tidy mate, never been into pigeons but remember the set ups the old boys used to have on their pens (allotments) world away.

Remember always used to see a pigeon wagon going away  from my town when I was a kid.

Cheers, D.

Katchum was that the doo shop upstairs from the pet shop at park head cross used to go to the doo sales there on a Sunday me and a mate looking for big pouter hens happy days😀

When I used to go to Celtic often , I used to get orders from the lads here to go pick up young uns  , or drop ones off . 

If I had the time or the space I’d be back at the pigeons bother. 

Loved every minute of my childhood at the loft or doing that  thing only pigeon men do where they see a loft and knock to see them
