I have one left will be parted in a week or so, very pleased from a 2004 cock which is sire and grand sire of good pigeons

The widower and roundabout flyers would probably have not seen young in the nest since March

I guess I am a bit different to the rest of you guys that are racing.

As you may know by now - I am starting again from scratch, having just come back into our sport after a long time away due to illness. I had to have an emergency Liver Transplant.

I only have 4.5 pairs of breeding birds and will be breeding as long as I can - maybe up until the end of July. I need to build myself a new family of quality birds, so I can have a go at the Y/B program in 2017.

QUESTION - Are any of you lovely people breeding for you top Stock Birds still? I understand that the racers will not have any more babies, but do you treat your stock birds differently - OR would you normally stop breeding from ALL your birds around this time of year?

I am really looking forward to hearing all about your racing seasons - so keep posting. atb

Everyone should not be breeding of racers especially sprint ones.distance ones might be different. The stock birds could still be breeding. I for one still have some more to come out of my stock but only selected one

Easy to say O/S Smile Smile harder to achieve thou at times I'm  affraid. Always a risk factor with what ever way one may decide to do/go with  the vaccination scenaro. Now, Phil Smile Smile being your first year back with new stock etc which way you choose I suspect sadly, you will be on a hiding to nothing type of thing for many reasons from my point of view. Next year when your stock are more settled there I have confidence on you having a much better breeding season as such. If your fortunate enough to find good healthy stock that like to breed like chooks Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes & 6 rounds should be like a walk in the park for them I suspect. cheers

I re started approx. 6 years ago, after a 20 year break.....I bought 6 pigeons and bred ybs off them, now after breeding and introducing other pigeons ive more than I want to have and need to cut numbers drastically. if I was in the position of starting again with 6 pigeons, I would breed very slowly, and only introduce very few birds....I would do this over a few year period and not rush to establish a team of birds, otherwise its easy to loose control and be over stocked if you are not racing every week.

Sounds reasonable to me Shippy Smile Smile. Perfect world for me would be to have all stock birds free to roam at will. Sadly I'm affraid when one takes in the risk factor, it is but a dream bounce bounce. Especially Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes when you have 33 pair Wink Wink.   cheers

I think it is a bonus if you have prisoner birds that you have an aviary .....they can enjoy the sun, rain and fresh air, plus have a nice safe bath...... cheers
