What a big shame Darren.

Is its skin damaged at all?  What are you going to do with the bird?

Phil

plenty blood where the flights were pulled out and slight damage at base of flights but she will make a full recovery but finished for the season looks like the bird has escaped the grasp of a falcon ...lucky girl

Won it by seconds. Will not know about Fed for a week. Just 140 birds sent from the club all but mine widowhood. Good bunch of guys.. Because I have to drive for an hour to get there they suggested I read my own tape and email the results in. Take the tape in the following week. Saves me a lot of gas and time!

excellent result hal well done ...what a great bunch of guys

Common sense factor being displayed I would say Hal etc in your situation. Not for the purist types I would suggest Wink Wink but from my experience here  Rolling Eyes  Rolling Eyes some of them live in a fantasy type world, long gone unfortunately. cheers

Nice results here. Overall not so good. Sent 14 cocks and 6 hens. Just after 1 pm weather closed in. Clocked 5 and 3 more made it back that day. Thunderstorms. High winds. Sunday same but rained all day. 2 made it through on the Sunday. Today weather cleared a little. 4 more today. Mud on the bands. 6 missing. Oh well they have to earn their perch for the winter. All young and eggs in the nests disposed of. 205 and 250 coming up this weekend. Last weeks ( May 13th) 115 and 150 birds all go to 250. Week after a 250 and 320. May 20th birds go there. Week after a 400. Then pick and choose scenario. All back first race. Missing 6 now. Getting down to numbers I like. Tomorrow to the feed store. Dove mix for all remainder of week. Still basically open loft. Do not intend to train any more. Right or wrong, need leaders not followers and this is the only way I know how to do it.

Right or wrong "who really knows" Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes.Your the one sitting on your little plot their Hal Smile Smile from my perspective etc Wink Wink so it's your call in what & how you do things I would suggest Smile Smile.

Hal - I don't know whether to commiserate or to say - "that is pigeon racing".

It sounds as if you have plenty of birds to play with.

By the way - what does your club charge to send a bird to a race?

Yes Phil, plenty of birds. Cheap to ship weekly. 75 cents a bird. Too many birds so trying to find a few extra special birds. If I can find 6 to 10 good ones the remainder will be culled. Cocks and hens can ship 40 plus a week. A dozen good birds are easier to keep and feed than 40 plus. Always looking for the elusive few crackerjacks. By the way, my apologies. Did not win last week after all. Results were out today. 3rd. It was a blow home race. Tougher this weekend according to the weather forecast. Still, stick to my plan. 250 miles. Miss the 205. I lose half then no big deal. Not something I worry about. These birds are not pampered or medicated. As knackered says, it is my choice as to the management. Next year maybe one loft races, thinking on it.

No commiseration required I suspect Phil Smile Smile Differant strokes for differant folks Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes etc. The perfect number is a a fantasy from my perspective, because many factors play a part in this sport of ours one could suggest Wink Wink.
