I'd forgotten how nuts ybs can be, got my first ones in the air today and my son in law who is my partner and has never kept pigeons before just kept saying , sh-t they're fast ain't they, followed by, that's it they're gone , just shot over the houses and they're gone, we won't see those again, 5 minutes later a dozen ybs speeding back over and piching straight onto the loft, followed by a big grin from me saying, I told you so ( with a massive sigh). Ybs, you just gotta love em eh, after 30 odd years still gives me a buzz

They've been on the loft for about a week now, and have had a little stretch of their wings but this is the first time they have been for a good fly, thought the son in law was going to have a heart attack lol
