  1. This bird has been knocking about my allotment for about 10 days any way I got him in today

    This pigeon has been clipped down in both wings badly he can fly but not far he's flown down but with a bit of tlc he will be fine

    Well done jock . Tough race again , I’ve 12/14 . Some members have good returns others don’t

    Hopefully they all work home


    Well done everyone


    well done all , i watched the liberation and the birds seem to clear the site well ,how far were yous flying , thanks

  4. I've used it for about 12 months and this year was my base mix for breeding and my ybs are on it now, I don't race on it but im sure some fanciers might do , I get mine from Terry Knox at Swalwell for approx £11 50 , 20 kilo bag ,,

  5. it doesn't matter which way you look at it there's for to many birds in one loft or space , to be looked after and trained properly , there's no doubt that there's birds from some of the best lofts world wide but there's some thing getting sadly over looked because these sort of losses happen year in year out and there's nothing getting done to put it right , podgy

  6. well the Belgium's have basketed for two national races this week end so it doesn't look as if its affecting there racing, it could be a different ball game going to Belgium to liberate, but up till now every thing is on Couse to race from ypres next week end in the unc, podgy

  7. just took this from another site,
