what do you mean when they stop eating, I have never known this, if pigeons don't eat you are feeding them too much?

Its a sign of form Mark

Here you are mate I flew in the Tipton and District HS and there was a partnership call Conroy, Lawley and Wood (Ray Conroy) he had a cheq cock given to him because he would not take to widowhood as the owner only flew widowhood, so Ray broke him to his loft and flew him natural

But he always went of his food when he was in form and Ray had to hand feed him just to make sure he had some food in him

The cock won 19 Club Firsts, 6 Open Races and 5 First Feds and all because he went of his food

Agree with the other posts when widowers are on the money they don't eat much but we always try to get them to eat something on Friday morning.
