Me too Del, Are we talking a kid or adult here? Why would someone think you could leave any livestock without food for a week, I know we need to encourage new people into the sport but they do need common sense Posted Image

Hi peeps got a question is we are away on holiday for 1 week will my Pigeons be ok without food for week there will be plenty of water or will I need another pigeon guy to help check on them?


Hi Matthew
I would never leave my birds without food for 1 week
I see by your profile that this is your 1st year flying pigeons
The solution is simple, your are in a club so simply ask a fellow
member to look after your birds. But also offer to look after his
if he go's on holiday
At present looking after a fellow members pigeons and when I go on holiday
he will look after mine
Cheers
Have a nice holiday

Right I’m going to close off by saying I’m young at 38 and no way am I being tied down by so called experts saying I cannot have a holiday for the sake of my Pigeons, they will be looked after. People who say don’t need a holiday I bet they had in their life and half of the folk here are retired so that’s a holiday to them.

work out how much feed they need for a week and give them it as long as you;ve got enough water for them. it will do them no harm, a week off peace and quite will be good for them,

Nobody said you cant have a holiday, we said look after yer birds and feed the bloody things. FFS put a knife through a bag of feeding and fill as many drinkers as you can get your hands on, rather than say you might leave them for a week!!!They should be heavy in the moult at this time and need as much care and attention as possible.

Could you not have sorted that out in the first place instead of making a can't of yourself

I was only asking a question but surprised there’s unhelpful advice eg slagging a new beginner which is me, they all got to watch what they say as that’s why I notice people leaving the hobby due to twats spitting out their dummies and bawling and swearing. There’s more to life than just Pigeons. Keep the beginners not lose them.
