  3. ok andy heres one for you after spending a fortune on a few stock pairs from louella i filled my loft with the yb off them i had the biggest yb team ive ever had they had 30 tosses to 40 miles before the first yb race i had 83 out of 86 bred it was friday and i had taken my baskets to the front of my loft to basket for otterburn our first yb race as i looked into the loft at my team i thought to my self 83 super bred super trained and super condition how the hell do i pick a pooler out of them as the club i was in at that time was flying for over 250 pounds a week of which i was taking 12 and 13 hundred pounds a season with a very small team of pigeons and was getting a name as a guy who could set up and pick a pigeon in which i took great pride in but 83 was new ball game i handeld them all but they were all in great order i came out the loft and did not have a clue i llbasket them and see if one of them tells me i laughed as i went back into the loft all the birds were on perches and a cheq cock 49 dropped down on the floor so i picked him up first opened the slideing door and put him in the basket the cock ran into the corner of the basket and started cooing sitting way down low as if in a nestbowl and he was peeking threw the door which wasonly open about five inches as i watched him a cheq pied hen dropped on the floor with her tail down the cock was cooing like mad thats my pooler i said but i will pool the hen to filled out my pool sheet cheq cock 49 all pools nom and accumulater cheq pied hen all pools with money on another few and off they went to the race there were six hundred birds in club 3500 in west sect 8600 open sat and there up a cracking day light south west and sunshine i was looking east to wards hamilton race when i saw a pied coming on its own it was the wee hen that droped on floor first one of 83 a pooler i cant be far away i thought as the hen shut her wings and droped the cheq cock came out the south over the house hit the board and in the hen timed five seconds after him i could not believe my luck i was 1st and 2nd club 1st and2nd west sect 6th and 8 th open taking all the pools and accu in club and was allso 3rd and 4 th man what a race that was i was on cloud nine and only droped one
  4. poultry eggs hatch 21 days to pigeons 19 not much gallowway and mccleod in stonehouse sell a small one for six eggs think it was 99 pounds
  5. i didnt ethere george the cornflakes was just a wee tip if your feeders were a day or two out trial and error m8 you get good info from books on poultry bantam breeding
  6. isometimes use one imade myself a small wooden box about a foot square i use perspect lid drill a hole in middle of lid to fit a household light socket fit a 15 watt bulb then drill a small hole about 1 inch from top of box on two sides for air vents a bit smaller than a pencil put some sawdust 1 inch deep in bottom and a small lid off a bottle lemonade in corner with a little water cant remember what temp should be but as long as you turn the eggs every day should hatch about 19 days if it takes longer plug one hole if less than 17 days drill another hole between 17 and 21 days is ok check eggs are full at 3 days 4 at most hold each egg up to a light bulb if you cant see veins of blood bin them there empty your problem is trying to have your feeders with in 2 or 3 days to foster them ifound if your feeders do not have soft food you can feed the chicks bye crushing up cornflakes into powder a spot of milk and luke warm water and mix into a thin paste you can sringe them for a few days i found it to much hassle so just use it to keep eggs and yb warm if i send pair to race hope this info helps you good luck m8

  9. not the as bad but funny two doo men from were basketing the birds to go a thirty mile toss to elvanfoot while arguing about what side of the motorway to lib so as to avoid percy they argued for the full 30 mile drive and finally agreed to lib on the left before the big hill both get out the car open the boot no doos they for got to put the basket in the car lol i see i missed out they came from hamilton loved to have heard them
  10. yer pads in the loft if its screwed onto the roof to m8
  11. we could argue the toss about the interpretion of the rule for ever dal so ill finnish with this do what you think is fair
  12. trapped was on sheets sent out to all clubs when ets first came out benny martin was presdent of shu at time but even rule 9 on here says bird must enter loft before timing if its walking on to a pad and timed in it has not enterd the loft because it can fly away if it wants and still be timed in anyway mines is on floor of sputnic and no one has any beef with that i am keeping me right and fair to others the system its self is advantage enough without trying to get more in my opinion
  13. thats totaly wrong mick the only ones that get away with that are the stall trap boys be cause when bird goes through it cant get back out suppose to be thats why its a grey area in the rule if you could not catch the bird while its on the pad its not legal and you cant do that if bobs are up i know what the shu rule is because it was me who sugested it to shu presedent to stop unfair use and to make it fair for all not trapped not legal covers every aspect if anyone has it any other way report it to your club and union they are cheating you force them to take action hope this clears it up for everyone
  14. round the loft way a bit a string tied on her lol
  15. bus wid run ye doun noo george or no turn up lol
  16. this is the reason the shu rule is bird must be trapped it covers all objections because if bird is trapped the rubber can be removed any thing else theres way round trapped stops people trying to work an advantage and is more fair to guys with clocks if we all had ets then we would not need the rule we would all just put them under the landing board then we are all the same
  17. you are tech correct and i agree with you but a bird only wants out a stall trap when it finds bobs are shut when bobs are open the bird has no reason to want out so kinda splitting hairs
  18. mik its deff right just make sure box is broad enough so bird has to be inside before it can stand on pad not just stick head through bobs and time and if box is screwed on its part of the loft same as a sputnic but these are best as some birds dont like bobs and waste time going in as i said ive tried them all and sputnics are best and legal with pad on the floor partion at back with small hole cut so bird cant miss the pad easy m8
  19. the bird must be trapped shu rule came about because pad inside loft can mean on roof or on boxed in landing boards where birdjust has to land and is timed outside loft
