hi phil, if these birds have raced as ybs and you have settled them ok i dont see why not.......they are only young yet, what have you got to loose ? when a local fancier packed in near me another local fancier bought all his birds, settled themand is going to race the full team this year Very Happy

Very Happy yes got to agree with the lads Phil, you should try them at least training if not a couple of races. Put it this way we look after them all winter give them the best and all we ask in return is for them to do what they do best and fly. Racing is payback time as far as Im concerned they got to earn the right to stay in the loft.

yes i agree with martyn phil, ive made the mistake of not training my 08 and 09 birds since i restarted and now im stuck with them, as apart from breeding off them to test their young they are never likely to race........if like you i had the chance i would definately give them a go. if youve got hens for them just pair them up to give incentive for racing home. Very Happy

Very Happy Hi david, yes weve all done that and ended up with too many birds, thats the thing with pigeons you can always breed more. I have a new years resolution this year and iam sticking to it, KEEP LESS PIGEONS, AND RACE ALL WHAT I HAVE, every year I look at the loft and think it needs weeding out, well this year is it all the birds are racing and anything that produced average birds last year, and again this year will be leaving.
