High Ranking (7/8)

  1. Another one this morning 6/8 Very thin young hen, with muddy feet
  2. I did It said the first race - must have been the only organisation that didn't cancel that weekend. I didn't think it did us any favours to be honest
  3. Sorry Andy - 1 yesterday morning and one this morning - one of my good hens came yesterday - very thin - the other one still missing. 5/8 - I remain hopeful Two races for this coming weekend and not looking forward to them
  4. Not a great race, I don't know what is happening with racing these days. Was 6th club, 6hrs 37 mins for 245 miles Only 3 home from 8 sent. My best 2 hens nowhere to be seen. Disappointing day
  5. Birds liberated at 8.30 am in a light NW wind increasing in speed the further north they go. Will update when I get one!
  6. Good night God bless ma'am
  7. The Up North Combine are at Maidstone 4880 young birds will be released between 8 and 9am hopefully heading straight home. 8 of them will be mine
  8. In the end I have e-mailed Rod Adams - he thinks it is a benign neoplasm and should be left alone (which is what we are doing) or only be dealt with by a vet, as there isn't a simple solution. Just thought I would update you
  9. Up North Combine Thirsk x 1 liberation Wetherby x 7 liberations Worksop x 1 liberation I think!
  10. You'd have thought he'd go to Aldi or Lidl 🤣 Glad your bird was sorted Neil
  11. It's a long way, whereas Alabama Bob was thought to have hitched a lift on a ship, I daresay there would be more ships heading for America than Norway. Are any birds with fanciers? With the way things are heading with the import requirements of racing pigeons (affecting all countries not just the UK) I wouldn't imagine it would be that easy to get birds home. I do know a few years ago that a fancier in Denmark or Norway who got a British bird in, met up with a UK fancier at one of the German pigeon shows - other than that - I don't know
  12. I have 2 x 2007 hens, one still looks well, the other is showing her age!
  13. It is currently 35°C in Redcar and expected to reach 37°C I'm in the house - out of it! The hottest temperatures today appear to be in York and some Scottish locations - there has been some very strong (but alas - hot) gusts of wind here - what's it like where you are? Stay safe all, no alcohol and plenty of water 😉
  14. I hope more make it home
