it certainly would ray, plus it would tell us why some didn't make it home eh, or where they end up...., although just think of the expense of putting a small chip on all your pigeons.

not for me think this will only spoil the fun of racing a lot of people wouldnt wait at garden or loft only go over when they know pigeon is close would be sitting in pub until last minute just my opinion though
