PostSubject: Results from Frogland - Ups and Downs   Sun Jun 18, 2017 6:04 am

At long last we have the full and official results from last week's race.

We had two races - The first 'real' young birds race - Apparently the first young bird race we did this year was only a 'Training' race, even though the race was properly timed using electronic equipment.  The results don't count.

Anyway, the way they ran this proper first young bird race was that they allowed any bird of any age to enter, but of course only birds born in 2017 would count towards the young bird race and the Young Bird Championship.

Now to the real point of this posting - out of the first 20 birds clocked, we had the ONLY young birds recorded, which means that we are at least first, second and third Club and probably quite high in the Fed, despite the fact that they were obviously getting ill themselves, as they have been really crook all week, and are only just coming back to good health as of Friday.

As some of you may know - our old birds were getting ill last weekend as well and we were flat last in the club in their race.

So in the end it was a bit of an Up and Down weekend for us.

p.s. I was watching the race from Brive evolve that PIPA was following where everybody's result shows up immediately as a red dot on a map as the birds are clocked.  The race was nearly 435 miles for the nearest competitor and within 20 minutes all the prizes had gone.  The birds were that close together.

I found it very interesting that, even over a distance of 430-470 miles, most birds arrived within quite a short time.  I guess that is pigeon racing these days!

Hi Lofty - re your question.

With our young birds - it is too early to tell as we are getting 15 to 20 birds all coming TOGETHER and it is pot luck who gets in first.

With the older birds (Yearlings) - at the moment (bearing in mind we have only raced short distances so far) One main cock and hen are responsible for nearly all our winning birds - or should I say, the birds that have have taken the first few spots.

They are both Vandenabeeles direct from M & D Evans bloodlines.

The Cock is called Young Amir, that won a few races in his own right and has already bred champions for the past owner, and the Hen is called County Princess. We have another Vandenabeele line which is also doing quite well, but the best cock we have from that bloodline, smashed itself on a wire in a race a few weeks ago.

The Geerinckx bloodline we have are from a 2011 pied w/f cock direct from Bart and a championship winning hen, again from Bart's 2012 lofts. From what I can gather the Geerinckx family of birds, do not come into their own until they are at least two years old. And right now we only have yearlings.

We have just found a buyer for our property over here, so we will be moving back to the Gloucestershire area by October this year. Most of our birds are not Geerinckx and because by their very nature they can take a long time to mature, they are not really fitting into my management ideas or scheme of things. So we may sell them both as a Geerinckx breeding pair. They are really well bred and are fantastic parents, but maybe not for us.

If we had a loft half full of Geerinckx, things would be different. We have just bought some stock birds from Ad Schaerlaeckens, which might be better for us in the long run.

OK, enough of my rabbiting on.

Thanks for that Phil, interesting read, strange how different families of birds do their racing at differing ages and distances, good news about you moving back to the uk, your getting like gypsies always on the move, hopefully it will be the last move for you

Hi Lofty

Regarding the name you mentioned beginning with L - NO thank you! I bought 12 y/b's from there once and there were all as crap as can be. But hay, I am sure they must sell a good one every now and again, just by the laws of average.
