  2. The sport of racing pigeons is dying….if not it’s already dead. For example, in my country, most local clubs are not recruiting new, younger members. The price of feed for pigeons is too expensive for the average fancier let alone for the new ones. Most new fanciers gave their views on the sport saying, ” I don’t see why I should spend all that money on pigeons”. Some folks think it hard to spend additional money on supplements, vitamins, accessories etc.
    Also, with an uncertain future, there will be a high percentage of unemployed persons who could do without spending money on pigeons.
    My view on the sport of racing pigeons is that fanciers took the fun out of the sport by making it complicated by means of additional club dues, fees, and hidden charges along with fees for vaccination, supplements, feed, etc.

    1. Welcome back, Colin!

      I can see your point. Often, what starts as competitive fun devolves into this crazy, complex thing as greed and ambition get involved and people lose sight of what they started for. Maybe it’s time to go back to simpler and more natural methods. I’ve read about some long-distance pigeon fanciers starting to follow this path.

      Anyway, thanks for still reading and commenting.

    1. Sad, but true, Frederick. But the same can be said about other things, all due the worldwide situation.

      It’s important not to lose hope, though. Things will get better – and once they do, Pigeon Racing will recover. Until then, we just need to do the best we can with what we have.

      Thanks for reading the blog and sharing your thoughts!
