That's a shame we need more youngsters at Alfie's age to go to the clubs on weekends or they will never become interested in pigeons at all need to start them early their our future if its going to carry on

All good stuff O/S Smile Smile I suggest. We have here at times invited the local scouts & girl guides down on basket night at times to try & get the young brigade interested in our feathered friends as such. Desperate times  Crying or Very sad  Crying or Very sad  Crying or Very sad I'm  affraid require desperate type measures etc. cheers

well speaking my mind here,i think the midlands one loft has started abysmally ...having asked a few questions on their facebook page and got no answers apart from the guy has a severe chest infection who is running the show so cant give any details...what is he doing running a one loft with issues for a start also I am amazed such a project has a 6 week arrival period with all the issues that could bring ,so I asked do they get vaccinated on arrival or weekly arrivals or one hit when all the arrivals are their"no answer"...don't think it went to well last year either if I remember correctly they had massive losses early on or was it a mass cull as they or any other one loft would not tell you if they had to cull for health issues else it could be a lynch mob wanting their money back lol! I think the who dares wins olr is much better organised unfortunately we had to enter this one to get in somewhere but next yr I would like to try the who dares wins olr jmo mind you but the midlands olr should have their protocol for vaccinating already sorted I did read they will have a weaning area but with so many arrivals I don't think it will make any difference they be best having a 2 week arrival period ffs its not the south Africa million dollar where their would be arrivals from all over the world so why a 6 week arrival period Suspect jmo atb

Interesting thoughts O/S Wink Wink Had a quick look on their site there etc Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes not quite reached the heights of the SA race yet I suggest Smile Smile. Will be interesting when the final 2018 race list is posted for all to see & we all will get an idea here what the future holds as such Smile Smile. cheers

i think if we had all had a choice, we probably wouldn`t have entered the mnfc, judging on past seasons reports.....but with us being refused at the rpra, we didn't have any choice, we had to get in somewhere, so that all marks work and efforts, and also the efforts of members, didn't go to waste....I think for the £25 each we paid, we will still get some enjoyment out of it, and we will get some idea of how good the mnfc one loft is for future reference ........next year hopefully we will be in time to enter the rpra, which would be my first choice.

I agree fully Smile Smile for 25 pound, through the hard work of Mark mainly etc the enjoyment factor shouldn't be to hard to find I suggest David, when we go racing together here as such. cheers

Money paid, hope for the best. Our choice. No matter. K. Birds quarantined. Why? Birds vaccinated. Why? Sick birds will die anyway. Leave as is with meds. The best bird on the day will win! Health and natural immunity. All other factors are irrevelant
Side note. UK study. Humans. Super bugs. 20 years from now antibiotics will be worthless. No effect as bugs adapt. Build up and generate bugs to cope. Super bugs killed many in the UK and elswhere last year. Over use of medication. Sadly no one take snote.

Still remember hospitals in my early days here Hal Smile Smile every room had a window any one could open etc "Fresh air". These days go into a hospital here & you are lucky to find one window you could open as such any where I'm  affraid  Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes. The bad bug scenario Wink Wink must I suggest love the modern way of doing things now. All happy, happy happy Wink Wink. cheers
