Before he went to Limoges as furthest 497 miles (800km). Most flights are westerly orientated, which I do not prefer. The plans are to train my birds myself on the easter orientated cities. Some other provinces race from there, so probably my birds can be basketted by one of them clubs.

Guess we can only guess at the feeling of trapping a bird from this distance , what are your goals for the future with your birds ????

 

My main goal is to win Barcelona International. To win another far distance is nice, but not really a goal........

I strenghten the stock with Kipp & Sohne hen. She's a daughter from 1st int Barca. For next year 20 yb from Jelle Outhuyse (http://www.jelleouthuijse.com/) and Auke Smid(http://www.aukesmid.nl/) will strenghten the loft. Those guys are the best for extreme long distance (Barcelona 1330km up)

I do have 2 de rauw sablon (cock and hen), 1 jan aarden cock and 1 harm vd Bij hen for sale right now.All breeders

What advice would you give the novice or anyone wishing to fly Nationals / internationals ????

 

Try and get/buy good birds from fanciers racing nearly the same distance as you do. Do not get into these sales "best of the best". Fanciers will never sell their best birds. Ask DNA from the yb and parents. Have the basket to select the birds.

Use your ears and select what would be good for your system.

Give quality food and talk to the birds.
