  1. Good read Brian apart from the mans demise of course, The Cattrysse birds were my favourites with the youngsters being very fast for me giving me many wins in club and fed.

    Your'e right Phil, very quiet on here but it is Christmas I suppose, I don't race anymore but when I did would never have been breeding this early, wouldn't have had rings anyway, I've seen pictures of 20 or more weaned youngsters wearing their 2022 rings, What a complete nonsense.
  3. Merry Christmas to you all
  4. Good Andy, Take all the protection offered
  5. Fabulous results, my era and can remember some of results.
  6. Great pics. Those show racers are very attractive birds.
  7. Yes Brian, Many brave souls lost on our behalf, We certainly owe them our greatest respect, God bless them all
  8. Beautiful, my favourite colour also
  9. That's a handsome kit of pigeons, well loved and cared for, can see why he is so top of the game
  10. Are we racing the wrong birds?
  11. Sounds like a very useful old lad there Peter
  12. Very impressive amount of silverware there, well done
  13. Strangely enough I have ten Reds here and they are all cocks, I have a late bred still in the nest, a red off a Red cock and Dk. hen so hoping for a hen
  14. As you see a few years back, these two young Red cocks were in the nest, pre-rings, looked in one evening and one had fallen out the bowl and was cold and lifeless, I took it indoors and held it over the Rayburn for quite some time before signs of life but I kept going and eventually put it back under the hen, It was fine in the morning and not having rings I never knew which one, Both were had by the hen Gos last year but they had a few years.
  15. Right lads and lasses what other livestock do you have at home, I know mine's a bit different having a farm but out of interest we have 7 horses, 8 sheep, 3 dogs and about 60 pigeons, a lot considering I last raced in 1986, but I do love them, Won My third race starting with old birds which is quite unusually but I'd had the birds for years before, do I miss racing? yes I do, after all these years, but I will always have my birds
  16. Nice, something cosy about corner lofts
