Hi David, had one myself which was missing for 3 weeks, when she returned she looked and felt great but with muddy feet, anyway the week after i put her straight back in a race from sleaford and she topped the fed, would love to know where she had been as i would like to take the rest there for a week or two, lol,

Could it be population density? Comparison to the UK pretty sparse here.
Here is another problem looming.

PETA charged them with using pool sheets. Rick Mardis runs the Continental Breeding Station. He had no birds in the race. He was taking the birds to the release point. The other 2, AU directors also had no birds in the race. Nor did any of them pool. Long to read the url but gives one an understanding os to what lengths PETA will go. No expense spared. Coming soon to the UK! PETA. People Eating Tender Animals.

Pigeons adapt to any circumstances. Cutting bands off or removing them has to be done by an ass***le.
