have heard of fancy fanciers doing well when they change to racing pigeons before, maybe its due to the fact they already know how to get them into good health and condition which will help for racing maybe........good luck to him. Very Happy

hi geordiejen, by the look of the velocity of 1404 its seems like it was a fairly fast race to me, could be wrong but the higher the velocity the faster the race i think...... Very Happy

a.f.t 3.54.18 is how long it took to fly the race..........186.1576 is the distance flown in miles/yards.........and the velocity is how fast it flew when the wind/conditions are taken into account.

yes thats right geordiejen, just because a bird is clocked first it doesnt mean it wins the race as some birds might fly further........... Very Happy
