Hi All, can somebody please tell me if there is a difference between Show Homers and Show Racers ? I've been told they are more or less the same but the Homer is kept in while the Racer is allowed out to fly . Any info would be welcome as I am considering keeping a few pairs of either if I can get my hands on them . Thanks in advance,

Frank Owen .

A show Racer is an exhibition bird probably distantly related to a racer.
A Show Homer is , in my opinion , is quite far removed from a racer. They have totally differently shaped and very long faces.

I doubt if either would be allowed to fly out.
