WHAT 3 THINGS ARE THE MOST IMPORTANT WHEN RACING PIGEONS

What 3 things are the MOST important when racing pigeons?

Today I have a really great “discussion” that I would like to open up for everyone.

This is a discussion that I feel will help both new and veteran fanciers alike.

The question I have for you today is…

Pretend you were mentoring a brand-new fancier in the sport, what would be the first 3 things that you would teach or tell them to get them going in the sport on the right foot?

Basically, what 3 things do you feel are the most important things a fancier should know when racing pigeons.

Post your answer below in the comments section, I can’t wait to read them!

1) Figure out what type of racing pigeons you need to buy. What distance would you want to fly, short, middle or long distance and buy birds for that particular distance.
2)Locate flyers in your area that are flying birds that suit your needs,if they are selling birds make sure that they fly winners and are at the top of the food chain in their club or combine. Do research online and see who else has success at your chosen distance.
3) Research loft designs, this is a very important part of being a successful flyer, build your loft with room to expand. Flooring is very important, you have concrete, wood and wire flooring, I like wire because there is less dust flying around your loft, talk to other breeders in your area and then decide. Good Luck

1) Best pigeons you can afford
2) well ventilated loft with clean feed
3) Listen and learn to what ever you can, take what you need and leave the rest
No one is right or wrong, what works for one, might not work for other, find what works for you and stick to it, avoid flip flopping throughout the season

(1) Clean water, feed & loft. The best pigeon in the world can’t win a race if it is sick
(2) Don’t medicate unless you know what the bird needs
(3) Training tosses as often as you can

1. Loft management – cleanliness, feeding ( grain free from mold)and clean drinking water.
2. Proper training, flushing and vaccination.
3. Let the basket do the selection of the pigeons and this in terms of results and thus also of genes.
All other methods of selection are so difficult and pedigrees are so tempting. Worthless pigeons often have a beautiful appearance and a beautiful pedigree.
International top pigeons often have a more normal appearance.
However, they do not have fundamental errors in physical construction.
Which does not mean that they can be selected according to a number of standard criteria such as, back, wing muscles, locks and feathers.
So let the basket do the selection.
