Just wondering how many folks mate up by eyes? Performance? Just let them together?

I did a couple of years ago hal, I think it was my worst season yet.......... Razz altho my interpretation of a good eye and someone elses might be two different things......I think to pair using eyes you need to at least have a basic knowleage Question Question

I don't mind a big bird ie broad shoulders etc, but for me I don't like the big birds when they are very long with a big long tail.......some may say these are distance birds but they are not for me..  Razz No

I am of the same view as you David I don't like big long deep keeled birds with long tails.
I have a hen like that, so I've paired her to a small cock, I won't be breeding from them, they will be rearng a youngen from another pair.

I try to pair by extracting weaknesses, for instance if one has a slightly weak back I will match it to a mate with a stronger back.

And also if there's a wild pigeon I try to pair it with a tamer one.

Ironing out the genetic creases so to speak.

when breeding there are so many things to look for balance feather bone structure performance carricter  eyes is a theory so cant coment the rest i can and all out way the eye theory in my  eyes you need to bond with your birds find out what makes them tic no 2 pigeons are the same what i have learnt over the years is motivation out ways all theories

forget keeping up with the jones do your own thing in your loft with your birds you will find ya resulst will be fr better than copping someone ie you have not got there birds there loft there location
