Our club is basketing tonight for Toulouse, which is over 450 miles to us.

It is too far for us as we only have yearling that did not race last year. Plus 'they is Crook' right now.

Young bird sickness -

Old birds may have had some dreaded lurgy caught from race baskets and mixing with other. It's like children when they start at school - they catch all sorts.

However, the problems/sickness is almost sorted out now, with a BIG thanks to our Darren.

Young birds went out today for the first time all week, apart from one that still looks really ill, the rest are looking and fly much better.

Sent 9 to Rippon with the Essex Combine.
It was supposed to be Berwick, but with heavy losses at the last Berwick they decided to bring them closer, which isn't good if you've been holding your distance team back for these races.

Ours were brought back from 250 miles to 205 mile station. Too much rain. UNC cancelled their races. Very strong South winds. We fly from the East.

Bad day. Or not? For regular racing bad. South switched to West wind. Head wind. 38 Celsius and 90 plus humidity. Thunderstorms on the course. Normal race figured 5 hours.
1st bird 6 hours 15 minutes. Went in wrong loft. His original loft. So 10 minutes or more wasted. However.  3 year old that was flown last weekend in very bad weather. Has been near the top ( in my loft returns ) on many occasions. 2nd bird home did not clock. A yearling not raced as a young bird. But also near the top same as above bird. Mud on the band. As of 30 minutes ago, 8 pm, only two home out of 9. 2nd bird was 3 hours behind the first one. Only clocked the 1st one. Sent the time in 20 minutes after clocking. I have 3 more that were not sent but have performed the same in previous races. 2 are nest mates. So. Good day for me in the respect it will be easier to cull a large amount in 4 few weeks. No idea how other folks did. Not important to me. These five cocks are the best so far. 11 cocks 3 year old go next week.  After that hens. 3 of the 11 are above the others. If that gives me 8 plus a couple of young birds that will be enough for next year. Best to best.  Hope for the best. No inclination to give birds another chance. Too much time, trouble and aggravation. Reliable is what I need not wishful thinking. The extra 40 plus miles from the club is not good in this weather. But not complaining at all. Oh well, 7 days from now another race. Or endurance contest! Maybe 1 lofters next year with some young from these.

Update. Tillsonburg club, short end, over 100 kms, usual ones to beat have their results up. 1011mpm fastest bird. In that club would be 30th. Many no reports there.

Interesting report card here Hal Smile Smile. For some purist pigeon loving types Wink Wink it may not make good reading etc I suspect in your management skills, to lower your numbers there bounce bounce. But be assured Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad Crying or Very sad I could fill a book with similar type folk doing strange type things to reach the same outcome as you, because of the Rota virus issue down here unfortunately.  cheers

Two more last night just before dark.
Knackered. Is anyone vaccinating for the virus? Or are people letting it run its course? As for lower numbers, only one bird wins, obviously. I would love to keep them all. However, practicality dictates otherwise. The more attention each bird gets individually, the better the performance I have found. Every year I get rid of 40 or 50 pigeons. Some kept back are 2nd chancers. No more. 18 pairs to race next year maximum. The more adversity a pigeon encounters the stronger it gets, mentally. Or is lost. Not every ones cup of tea but heck, there are numerous ways and methods and all work to some degree. That is what makes this sport so interesting.

To put it in blunt terms Hal Wink Wink it's a ****ing cicus  Crying or Very sad  Crying or Very sad  Crying or Very sad down here sadly, with the Rota virus issue. The panic merchant types "like our Dr Spock" were telling us the world was going to end etc & his off sider up North, a certain Dr Marshall here "Pigeon Vet" is actually racing at the moment in a local Fed in his area along with many other clubs & Feds around the country as such. Latest word Smile Smile local man Wink Wink is trying a chicken vaccine that you put in the water I believe in desperation, because the new vaccine appears to be harder to make than first thought etc. cheers
