I took a few pictures of my six young birds. That was before half of them buggered off. One came back Saturday morning - so still 2 away. I don't expect to see them now - Oh well - better a few good birds than a loft full of rubbish.

OOps - how do I attach an image or images?

they still might come back phil, ive had them return after 5 - 6 days.

two ways to post photos on the forum,

1 use photobucket or tinypics.com to copy and paste the IMG code onto your post.

2 where you post a reply along the top are two rows of symbols, you need the top row6th symbol along where it says host an image, click this and a box will appear, then if you click the left bottom corner where you log on or off your computer it brings up your pictures stored on your computer, choose the one you want and drag it across to the host an image box, then click send all and it gives you a code which you copy and past onto your post.

it sounds a bit complicated but it quite easy once you've done it a couple of times., alternatively email them to me and I will post them for you.

OK I trust this has worked.

One image is of - All 6 first round babies.

The other image is of the remaining 4 y/b's flying this morning (Sunday 5th June)

The image of the birds in the loft is taken when the y/b's first went into their New Young Bird loft - all new and shiny!

I did try to find some of the new 'Pigeon dippers' - but you can only buy them in the USA right now. I am training the birds to use a dish of 'Cat Litter' at the moment and they seem to be getting the hang of it.

The only problem is that, the cat keeps eating the birds when they come down to poo!

LOL

The gay pied is a Geerinckx from two stock birds direct from Bart.

Yes and No - I had two first round Geerinckx, nest mates - the night 3 flew off (Friday night) - Both the Geerinckx went, plus a Vandenabeele.

On Saturday around 10:00 hrs - one of the Geerinckx came back

Why d you ask?

Thank you so much Lofty - it is much appreciated.

I am a bit of a perfectionist. That come from being a Jewellery Maker and Designer I guess. And I like to get things right.

What a great little story.

Yes anything can happen in pigeon racing. As I said to my wife last night "it is better we have 10 good-uns, than 20 crap ones"!
Thanks to all
