Weekend after this one. Will pair up the stock birds. Forecast is reasonable. Just around freezing daytime. Lights have been on. Cocks are getting excited. Wet snow and rain has cleared up. Have to get the heated water bases working. Plus few other mods. Breaks up the dull, miserable, depressing Winter weather.
Howling gale off the Lake again today.
Bands. Was told today a fellow can get me Belgian/Dutch bands. For a price. Idea is to sell the young as imports. Passed on that one!

There are hundreds of Auction sites on the net. Fantastic strains or families. One super duper pigeon in Europe if advertised right, can set up a money making dynasty. No wonder people lie cheat and are dishonest?
Million dollar race. 6000 pigeons!! Whatever wins it will be probably lucky! Not superior!

Wind, drag, bird numbers. Breaking points, leaders followers and all the other stuff discussed all the time. A bird in 100% condition will be naturally motivated. If he/she does not do good better birds are called for. One can only condition the bird. Cannot steer it.

Another week. Upped the feed quality a little. Will add electrolytes (for the minerals) one or twice before mating. Breaks up the long cold Winter!
Getting my heated water bowls ready.
