Squeaker (4/8)

  1. Mines are left alone as much as possible with a bath now and again garlic in water and mixture of vanrobeys all round, VL superstar and depurative fed to appetite. Lemon juice and cinnamon added to food twice week. Mixed grits and minerals given fresh every couple days. Couple weeks moult should be complete and sexes will be split and will go onto winter rations to keep the weight down. Will also be vaccinated when split.
  2. Andy Kyle is your man for north road info... Kyleakin lofts on here. I'm sure Andy will fill us in.?? I only know of Cumnock club shows run on Friday nights from last Friday of this month being an eyesign class through to all ticket winners final a few weeks later.
  3. Anymore details regarding venue and class entries etc. Only know of one club running shows in Ayrshire this year, which is unfortunate. Thanks

    The Moult.

    Generally don't split mines until moult done boxes all closed up though, out for bath every few days once split will stay in doors through until February lost too many last winter to hawk. Few latebreds may go out and will be trained when I've time. Have them on equal parts vanrobeys all round, VL superstar and depurative to appetite. Vanrobeys super grit and some mixed grit and clayblocks every other day. Garlic in water and some lemon cinnamon used on food now and then. Birds look and handle fantastic and well on way to having a good moult.
  5. Well done Stuart... Top pigeons
  6. Still one hanging around so definitely not Ayrshire bird
  7. Wouldn't have thought this deep in season... Never normally have strangers with mine as birds coming through most of the federation geographic
  8. Ayrshire federation birds have clashed I've had two strangers here one hanging around looking like coming in... Definitely shu rung. Doesn't seem to have hampered our race 6 in half hour
  9. Good luck Graham... due east here in Ardrossan this morning now east south east... should be quick
  10. I'm of the same opinion it should affect all birds every race... We have to do the simple things first and liberating birds in full cloud limits their orientation ability in my opinion. Worry about what we can influence first and foremost.
  11. Weather conditions played big part in the poor returns
  12. Crazy race programme Langholm then Elgin is that correct? Youngbirds trying to navigate round a mountain range from liberation
  13. Left with 28 from 40 after 10 races between federation and midweek club. Dropped 7 at the aforementioned wooler race. Haven't lost a single youngbird training which is a small miracle in present times. Training has been upto blackwood... roughly around 30 miles before racing started, then twice weekly from only 8 miles. Next two federation races will be very tough as convoy will be small... Half are now stopped
  14. The north section birds ain't coming the M8 Charlie or the Beith/Dalry boys be skelping us I'd have thought they come down Irvine Valley... it's really hard to pathom as I'd have thought they come past yourself... I don't see lots of birds so they ain't overshooting only see the odd ones going back... If they were running down here then they would be turning in for these guys in the south section surely ... Definitely think the South section birds being attacked after breaking further out and being turned down into Cumbria area... Only thing I know for sure is it can't continue like that
  15. South and Central sections of Ayrshire have had it very tough this year... Its not where we're racing from its where they're racing too... Birds taking diffrent valleys especially for South section guys... Only my own opinion how else can guys in North section have a good race when birds all libbed together
