Devo56 Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes There was some real shonky business  lol!  lol!  lol! "1000th member etc" going on earlier today here & I had my hands full. The word is I'm affraid the one that refused to accept the prize to mark the big occasion is nothing but trouble & in a big way. I just hope the moderators here Smile Smile come down hard on him when he plays up as I suspect he will be out to corrupt many of the members here.
Enough said bounce bounce bounce. cheers

I did fly natural but have gone roundabout now as the hens would come to lay and miss races and with not many comeback races it meant the hens would miss the boat type of thing ...but it is more enjoyable and less hastle to go natural

first 2 years of racing we race natural. and Harley got on the race results.
was told by club members if I did not go on to roundabout so we could race the hens as well .we would not be long in the pigeon game.
we found out we were as much as 20 minuets behind the winners near every week on natural. so we had to go on roundabout to compete with the other members.
now we can hold our on with them.
and it cut down on training. just out 2 times a day for 1 hour job done.
lads said if we stay on natural we would never be off the road tossing the birds.
works for us. but not saying that natural flyer will agree with what am saying.
best of luck to you which way you fly your birds.
john. cheers

yeah some very good points there ....training aspect to natural I suppose its all about what fits into your lifestyle really ...on roundabout I only exercise cocks and hens once per day I find they exercise better and they do 1 hour sometimes a bit more which is enough I feel and then I get time with the family too

I think i need to read up on the roundabout system, its just good to be reading up again on racing pigeons. It also helps with the dvds, there is so much information out there, its knowing which is the best for your partnership with your pigeons i guess.

yes dev, theres so much info out on the internet now, and so many pigeon products that wernt around years ago........I restarted approx. 6 years ago after a 20 year lay off and couldn't believe how things had changed..... Neutral

Devo is this your first time with pigeons ???

Its a mind field if this is your first time mate, best think to do is get to the newsagents and order the weekly
British Homing World 95p

That will give you an idea on what people are flying and a few tips from the articles which appear within it
