  1. You need to get yourself to a liberation site mate - You could get a couple of thousand in the frame. This weekend will be one of the last weekends of racing though - then its our close season. D.D.
  2. Can anyone tell me if you would consider a pigeon to be unhealthy if it had one of its secondary flights on one wing nearly up to the top while the other wing the same feather had just broken through......? I dropped a pigeon yesterday which had this going on and I wondered if I shouldn't have sent him because of this. Thanks for any advice. D.D.
  3. Flew Barca last year for the first time - still waiting for my entries. (746 miles) Its a very tough race for one reason only but.........its a very big reason called the ALPS. I have had good success from race points Pau and Perpignan this side of the Alps but in my opinion to get through the Mountains, the birds have to be lucky. They need to pick the right valleys on their first trip and then they will come through everytime. The problem is, there are too many wrong valleys which lead off to Poland, Luxembourg etc. I have now decided not to send to Barcelona until the birds have been to the South of France at least 1/2 a dozen times. D.D
  4. Heeelp - I've just had a couple of young lads bring me an injured stray - (looks like someones stock bird) By the look of its injuries it has hit something. It is quite alert and has eaten and tried to drink but as fast as it is gulping down the water, it is pouring out of its injury around the crop area. I think I could bring it round ok if I can "plug" the hole. Anyone got any ideas....? D.D.
  5. 2 Races in and I have dropped 1 yearling hen but I am still expecting her to come yet. D.D.
  6. Thanks guys - most helpful. D.D.
  7. Can anyone advise me as to how soon after laying the second egg is it advisable to send a natural hen. Thanks D.D.

    Ets Help.

    Leroy - have you still got the clock connected to the terminal or the computer. It might not change until you connect it up the entry sensor. I've just had lots of problems with my Tauris. I'm not an expert but if I can help you out I will. - Where are you mate.....? D.D.
  9. Just tried it mate - still no joy I'm afraid. Incidently, the "Home" link doesn't work either. - I do live out in the sticks so perhaps the updates haven't reached me yet.....? D.D.
  10. Fifer - I have just noticed that it is the ones with multiple options that aren't working:- They are:- Fancier Non Fancier Articles News Links Showing - Hope this helps. D.D.
  11. Thanks Andy - I don't really want to send them under any pressure. D.D
  12. Can anyone give me the general nest conditions that it is best to send yearling cocks. I am aiming to get them ready for the distance in a year or so and want to look after them. Incidently, they didn't race as young birds. Thanks D.D.
  13. Hey up Fifer, Yeh, - all the options are in blue. When you scroll over them only some of them turn white - those that do turn white can be accessed but there are a number that remain blue when you scroll over them or click on them. Thus, you cant access them. Best D.D.
  14. Hi mate - No still a number of the items that I cant access........? D.D.
  15. Thanks for that mate - while you're doing it could you add a few more yards per minute to my velocity please D.D.
  16. Anyone know why I cant use the "Fancier" portal on the home page.....? I always use this on race day to check my velocity but cant get on it for some reason. There are maybe 4 or 5 of the options that aren't turning white when you run the cursor over it. We always have a little flutter on nominating the winning velocity at our club, so I'm always keen to see what it is before going down the club. D.D.
  17. Is Jimmy not on here anymore....? D.D.
  18. Just a note to let you know that the cocks are still sitting!!! D.D.
  19. Thanks for the reminder Roland - Shame cos we cant report normal day to day activities - how can you post a private message for everyones attention....? I am only trying to do my best for these youngsters by asking advice....? But I do realise what you are saying. Thank you all for your help any way. I will keep you informed of any progress. Cheers D.D.
  20. I have dropped a couple of late bred hens that were sitting chipping eggs. They have just now hatched. Can anyone tell me if the cocks will rear them on their own or will they leave them.....? Might they just rear one if I was to take one away.....? - Will the cocks still be ok to race (natural) in 2 weeks time....? - Glad of any advice that can help me save these babies. Thanks D.D.
  21. Aaah - thanks Homer - regrettably, the reason I got a new computer was because the old one was KAPUT and I couldn't access any info on it. - One less avenue to explore but thank you for trying anyway. Best Dave
  22. Homer, Where would I acquire such a cable. Is it likely to have come with all the club kit. I only want to use it as a single fancier but acquired the whole club kit.... Thanks D.D.
  23. Good evening Homer, - Really grateful for your help. Can you tell me what the Windows transfer looks like..... Thank you D.D.
  24. Hi all Well, here I am again with another problem with this ETS and would be grateful to anyone who can help, I have had to buy a new computer and in trying to load the ets on to it I have come up against a problem. I have loaded the old (i.43) disc on to it and thats fine. The problem is with the little disc that enables the drivers and allows you to use the comports. It would seem that my new computer is not an XP model and none of the other options appear to work. Heeeeeeellllllppppp. D.D.
  25. I have already 'pre'-paired my selected pairings for next year before I split them up. I'm hoping it will help to ensure an easy and more successful breeding season when I bring them together in March. D.D.
