Go to the RPRA site - look up FCI Ring Colours.

You will see there that the ring colour for 2017 is RED


The FCI regulate the ring colour for ALL EU countries.  So even if you are in Germany, France, Spain etc - the ring colour for 2017 will be RED.  The only difference is that the numbers and lettering are different. Some have a letter prefix like we do in England, and in France there is no letter prefix, only F 1234 for example.

If you really want to push the boat out - I could make you some Silver pigeon rings - heck, why not really go to town and have some 18ct Gold ones, I could do you a good price of a batch of 20 rings.

only platinum or rose gold will do phil lol! on another note though I bet a pigeon pendant or picture/engraving on a medallion to wear on a chain would go down well especially a good detailed one...my dutch m8 (god bless ya henk)sent some ybs over a couple of year ago he paid courier fee to and would not accept a penny so I gifted him a pocket watch with pigeon engraving and his name on as a gift when I met him so their is a market for this sort of thing especially with Christmas around the corner so best get the loupe out phil and get cracking until the small hours of the morning Razz lol! atb

I will give it some thought Darren.

Also re your PM - great idea - I will get back to you on that one.

I don't use a loupe, unless I am looking into a stone.

Have agreat afternoon.

I am putting down the foundation stones for our new 16 foot by 10 foot racing loft .  While my wife is painting the framework for the stock hen new aviary.  In-between that, I light a huge bonfire to get rid of all the broken wood that used to be hen houses.  We had 5 houses for chucks once upon a time.

Happy days - it is around 26 degrees this afternoon. and messing about with breeze blocks and lighting fires is hot work.

It wasn't midday when I mentioned the temperature.

It is now 18:30 hrs (local time) and it is still over 22 degrees.  Clear blue skies and not a cloud in the sky!

All the birds are now tucked up in their 'jimmy-jams' with a cup of hot chocolate each.  I will go in the loft later and read them a bed time story.  They like the one about the three little piggies.

Ans how a nutter!

It is almost 'Ideal' Ray.  We have nearly 4 acres and you can just about see our next door neighbours, if you try - no joking! 

The only thing that spoils France is the French!  Not really but they are VERY different to us, in many ways.  And we could do with a lot more pigeon people around here.  I don't fancy racing against ourselves.
