as I came from the loft this morning I heard a whoosh and looked up and saw about 50 - 60 pigeons belting along ....a bit early for training I think and what some people do eh for the win of the first race Rolling Eyes mine wont be going out for another 4 or 5 weeks let alone training ...when do members start to let their birds out and how long around the loft before training tosses.i am thinking 3 weeks around the loft and then 2 weeks training before first race

I keep seeing small groups of pigeons flying over Darren, as tho they are training.....I presumed it would have been fanciers training latebreds maybe ? but a group of 50 to 60 birds is definite training I would say, and a bit early eh........ Razz

David, O/S quoted a wind chill factor of minus 5 etc here, so I would suspect they all may have all been better home in the loft. That being said Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes you will never stop the crazy's Wink Wink being first to get there birds out tossing, no matter what the weather may be. cheers

ah rite the way it was worded it sounded as though you meant 60 late breds ...to me George 50-60 old birds is a very big team it would be the biggest team at my club of which we have 20 members and by no means the smallest by todays standards but maybe things are different in other areas...if I had 60 old birds to race and was training this time of year I would want to win the first race too but I think its far too cold with a wind chill of -4 to -5 with a NE wind a headwind for the direction the birds were going is to me ridiculous and even more so with late breds ...is it any wonder not many lates make the grade if this is the way people treat them jmo but training in this weather is a no go

wise man ric ...big team flyers with 100 rings can take chances and no doubt their birds win in spite of them not because of them atb

Your right there Mark have noticed small teams of 10-15 racing hard

In the past there has been open races in Bolton from Cheltenham which a lot of fanciers round here have taken part in

But the one thing I will say is if they are not late Breds they will only be old birds
