Went to see someone this morning about some van reets and Roland janssens , he had a few white delbars there, had a glance at them but just don't do it for me the pure white, which is odd because I like the grizzles

I agree etc, sometimes us pigeon men (racer types) forget what pleasure can be gained by having some of the fancy type birds as such I suspect. Cheers.

It/s a no go. He only ships US. There was a guy in Hull used to race whites years ago. Think the birds were Pletinxck or something. White Delbars do not hack it over here. Lots in the US. bad rep.

One could waffle on about this subject etc (colour against colour) I suspect for no gain as such. Good is good & bad is bad I would suggest & the only suggestion I would offer is never fill your lofts totally with white ones, unless your looking for a hiding on race day "wink, wink". Cheers.

The blue white has to prove itself. Not yet raced. The red pied is showing promise. Reasonable time from 250 miles.



Feather foots yet!

Same, same Hal. Embarrassing at times to put them in a race as such, when all the toes are fully covered etc here. Mainly Gits for me going back to the 1975 period, when with a mate I travelled 1000 miles to get them. Cheers.
