PostSubject: EACH TO THEIR OWN   Fri Mar 09, 2018 7:36 am

I think - wherever you go or whatever you ask - In the pigeon world - there will always be one person who says This is the right way to do, so and so. Then there will be someone else, who says NO you don't do it like that, or NO you don't give the birds that.

So I propose a new by-word for pigeon racing and that is:-

EACH TO THEIR OWN!

I have found, over the time I have belonged to this wonderful forum, many times I have expressed ideas that I know Work, and no sooner has it been posted, than there is someone who says NO that is not right!

Unlike other sports I have been involved in, in pigeon racing hardly ever do people agree with each other.

This makes me wonder if any of us really knows what we are doing!

Hay-ho - I guess we all just press on.

Have a great day everyone.

Phil

I think the reason for this is that pigeons win in spite of what some fanciers are doing with them ....just my opinion of course and each to their own lol! lol! lol! pirat

Just the nature of the beast type of thing I suggest Phil Smile Smile when people meet on an open forum. Horses/chooks/cattle etc & a multitude of other interests people may enjoy for their own reasons, will always find certain people with a different view at times. Not a bad thing as such, as long as respect is forthcoming by all with their views. End of the day Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes the Rome scenario Wink Wink will always come to the fore I suspect Smile Smile. cheers

The fact is that the membership of our sport is so diverse in many aspects that it would be impossible for all to use the same methods.

If there was a certain method it would now be well known after hundreds of years,
you can only keep a secret for so long.

There are numerous variations of methods used and nearly all result in success at different levels, you can abuse a realy good system and make the best of a lesser one etc;;l

Mine was based entirely on giving the pigeons as near an ideal a life to nature as possible and I was repaid a million fold.

Regards.

more truth in this than people will admit, good answer. As for us not knowing what we doing, feed them, water them, keep them clean, and give them a reason to get home, of course this is just my humble opinion Rolling Eyes

The thing is with pigeons is that no 2 setups are exactly the same, the way we all care for our pigeons is so diverse, some are regimental some are so relaxed with open hole, some people work some are retired, some people’s birds are tame and some are hitting the sides of the shed when you walk in.
We all feed differently with different mixes exercise at different times, use different products and potions.
What works for 1 man may not work for another as it can’t be exactly the same, ie one man may live next to a busy road where birds can’t rest, another may live in the country, and have foxes prowling at night or another mans pigeons may be scared to come out of the loft for fear of cats or birds of prey.
What I’m trying to say is, keep your loft as dry as possible, well ventilated, and keep your birds contented and healthy, and find what works best for you, and not someone else.
