Cut all.my fancy birds right back sold all my balls and badges,and tipplers, all I have left is 24 self yellows and clay yellow's.

Going to have a really good go at racing next year, it will be weird going.to club on a Friday with no old birds to fly, but gives me the chance to get a good.kit.of young birds ready.and trained properly

Tipplers were my introduction to pigeon keeping, enjoyed every minute of it, flew some good hours with them to, father in law was brilliant at flying them

My friend Scott Whitehouse of Tipton his dad flew young tipplers to 19 Hours 30 mins and at the time held the record for youngsters only to be beat by a fancier to record 19 Hours 35 mins

What a kick in the nuts hey
