How much does a bent keel affect a racing pigeon.

Has anyone got any champions in their loft with a bent keel.

Why do you think bent keels occur.

I've heard a few theories like vitamin deficiency, the final push getting free from the egg, and squeekers resting on the edge of a nest bowl.

Personally I never had any problems with bent keels when I used deep clay nest bowls, then I broke one and borrowed a shallow plastic one.
The squeekers rested on the edge of the bowl all the time and they both had bent keels.

It may have been a coincidence but I threw the plastic bowl away.

I think its a lack of something either in the feeding or general make up and constitution of the yb, something affects them shortly after ringing and onwards. I think they can compete on their day, and win. However I dont think anyone would claim to have a loft full of bent keel birds up to 5 yr olds with major prizes to their credit?

I have no idea why lol just nature I think ...like all walks of life their are imperfections but I don't think it would effect the birds ability to compete ...I don't think it will make a bird fly off course lol

in my view you should be setting a standard with your pigeons, and therefore any defects should be eradicated, nothing else for it realy is there, nothing short of perfection is what is required ?. study

         Excuse me sir,exactly what standards are you talking about...
 Cou;d it be the difference between club fed combine type mediocre type racing;
or perhaps pseudo Nation...ie  midland/uncombine mickey mouse stuff
or proper BBC BICC NFC type
  Perhaps if every fancier was given instructions only proper Nat type raceing would be avalible...under union rules ---- sprint would be banned..
   every bird within lofts that was outside the top 500in said Nat result to be eradicated...perhaps that might possible be the start of correct standard listings---
     Your thoughts ie,,any defects to be eradicated???? who says thoughts in your head arent just personal judgements which would certainly dismiss good and bad at even percentages.....
