Sorry folks. Must have conveyed the wrong impression. Was going to pull down a section of loft. 8 x 8. Build another in its place. 8 x 6 for young birds. Too bloody cold! So will renovate the 8 x 8 section. Tomorrow. Not going to be warmer but will pick up the plywood and go at it. Re cover the roof with plywood. Strip off back and replace. Plywood. Re do floor. Plywood. Floor I am expecting the underneath to be bones and whatever. So be it. Have a bale of straw coming also. Usual thing is to walk with the dogs and pull dead grass, twigs etc for nesting material. Will straw the lofts over shavings. Boxes any way. Have to wean few weeks. So old racers have to be paired to make roon for young birds. Feb 1st anyway. As you can see by the pic, nesting material needed!

Like your style Hal, near to nature as possible, clinical conditions, rubbish, they do not show up the inferior at the right time also being full of numerous anti this and anti that they only fail after going in the racing panier having been artificialy health maintained, and they wonder why they lose them from a couple of miles.

Nice read, Hal, just shows you do not need a lot of pigeons to produce the goods, just a few good ones.

Couple of eyes to die for in the first two birds.


Never knew there were so many reds in the Janssen family.


Learn something every day.

When about 12 years old I had the most consistent pigeon I have ever had, a big pure White cock.

Took two days from 200 miles and the same from a bus ride of seven miles.

Would never in those days thought of culling him too good looking.

Have learned one or two things since but never had any regrets about the white cock.

Regards.

On reflection, Knackered, when I think of being a member of a family with 5 others siblings, no real money to throw around as a family, made everything regarding the animals I kept from boxes and anything I could lay my hands on, fed them by taking a couple of jobs delivering groceries and meat etc; catching a few bunnies, then think of the youth of today and you can see why the world is in such a diabolical state, everyone thinks they are entitled to everything going even if they never get off their back sides.

Made me laugh when on the television there was a family moaning about not receiving enough money in benifits, they had a television in every room, kids toys strew around that must have cost a bomb, all the latest gadgets, ??????.

Had a pair of pigeons in a coal house in the back yard in West Hartlepool. Lived on doorsteps (end off a loaf of bread). They lived on white rice and wheat. Does not matter how it starts. Gets ingrained bond with animals/birds. Many on here as I have travelled the world. Seen the good and the ugly. Yet back in a safe haven bond surfaces. Animals/pets seem to be an outlet for emotions. My dogs for example. Spent many hours training them. They listen and understand. They took a helluva less time to train me!! Food, water, shelter. This house is run solely for the benefit of the dogs it seems! They only take advantage of me when they think they can get away with it. Often!!!

Hi Don. Yes he still races and wins a lot. Sold his sheep farm few years ago. He has imported quite a few from Europe. Last few years. Not reds. I have more reds than him he tells me. Yes Knackered, they stand the test of time.

Only able to have one good Red. But then again, never had many.

Had a Youngster from a fancier in Sunderland. Took always at least two nights out from a training toss. Often a wee first toss.
But never ever had a night out in a race. Flew the Lerwick and Bergerac with a Fraserburgh or equivalent same year like nigh all my birds did. From the same fancier I had a Pencil cock. Won at all ages and 3 different lofts I broke it into. Great pigeon. It won Bergerac by 11 hours (Sorry I had the next two in the race a hour and hour and an half behind, But first 11 hours before another member in club) Won Thurso also same year about 3 weeks a part.

That size warmer weather not a problem. But my fault! Put straw in the box but nest bowl was too small. Put a larger bowl beside it but to no avail. All these years with pigeons and early breeding I should have known better. First fatality of the year.

Great little books FW Smile Smile Interesting & down to earth type of thing with the knowledge in them etc I suggest. Spelling was atrocious thou when printed in English type of thing I'm affraid with the ones I have here . But in the end a minor issue, when one thinks of the knowledge & interest factor contained in them all as such  Smile  Smile in a pigeon sense. Now  Wink  Wink he is another one I have here that may just bring back memories some what, maybe  Rolling Eyes  Rolling Eyes Britain's Year Book of pigeon racing, 1971, with a pigeon of Les Davenports Open winner from Pau in 1970, which also won the Kings cup at the time there in the NFC  Smile  Smile. cheers
