I hope your enjoying the website, as much as I am enjoying making it! 🙂 and I really want to get to know you better, I also really want to get a good feel of your comfort level with pigeons this way we can continue to bring you more informative content that better suits your needs.
So in this weeks discussion of the week I would like to know…
If you had to classify your knowledge of pigeons how would you classify yourself? would you classify yourself as a beginner, intermediate, advanced or expert? and why would you classify yourself as that?
It would also be great if you can add into your comments how long you have been involved with pigeons as well for example 1year, 20years etc.
So go ahead and post your comments by clicking here.
I am really looking forward to hearing from you and getting to know you better!
Yours in the sport,

When flying racing home is well over 30 years and I can consider myself much more better than a beginner for some reason I cannot keep the form and keep the bird light enough and keep them in shape for racing I must not know the trick on how to feed them or medicate them on the right days yours in the sport Anthony Menendez
I am racing pigeons 8 years I still struggle with feeding correctly in racing season. I would say maybe intermediate.feeding to win is not easy.
Then the best way to feed them is all they can eat , And when they come home from the race the first two days I would give them wheat and barley and then the rest of the week I would load them up as much as they want to eat all day long and all night long Siri pick only what they want to eat then you pull the tray today before racing and give them some rice feed mix with some safflower load them up with water that’s what I do I don’t know if it works for me if I don’t work for me but that’s the way I do my feeding because I like to feed the birds and watching me
I’m a beginner looking for as much knowledge about carrier pigeons as possible.
LLEVO UNOS 40 AÑOS CON PALOMAS DE PICA AQUI EN ESPAÑA, AHORA VOY A ADENTRARME CON

I still classify myself as a beginner, I only started as a fancier in October of 2019. I need to learn more about raising pigeon.
a.) proper selection of breeder
b.) conditioning of racing pigeon
c.) proper loft design for breeder and racing pigeon
these are most i need to learn.
Hi my name is Christian and I live in Australia but I’m from California. I was in 4H as a youth and raised rabbits and chickens! When I started having success with my chickens I dropped the rabbits! Because of my contact I had exceptional chickens! I did obtain some nice show pigeons at one time but I never met any fliers till I moved to Australia! If I had got into pigeons when I was young I’m sure I would have loved it but it never entered my mind!
I’ve lived here in Australia since year 2000 and I’m just over 50! I’ve only had my pigeons for a short time! I acquired my pigeons in September, the month the first cases of Covid
Were being detected in China! So I’ve had my pigeons and I haven’t been able to race much being in lockdown most of the time since then!
My vision for this sport has to do with getting people involved by using gps rings and having races posted on maps so people can see there bird or the bird they bet on in real time! This would make it possible for the sport to gain more interest 🙏🏽
I have been raising pigeons for 14 years. I have 10 pairs all mixed breeds, but I treat them as athletes. They fly, eat, and live on a schedule and I keep detailed calanders for each pair and their breeding cycle, and use dud eggs to avoid squeekers, and preserve their calcium levels. Each bird has their own journal for health, medications, suppliments, vitamins. Nobody taught me how to be a pigeon hobbiest. I learned on my own. I am interested in keeping the sport alive, and one day hope to race my best birds.

I know very little. I am not physically able to do much and $764.00 a month income does not leave much for a hobby.
I had a few when I was around 20 years old (1969) for about a year. Then my growing family had to come first so I gave them to a teenage neighbor. Back then there was a local club and several fanciers around.
August 2018 I got some Tumblers from a neighbor and then some Homers from a feller 50 miles away. If I release the Homers I got from him they will go back there. Both, the Tumbler man and the Homer man, have went on to a better life. Now there is no club closer than 100 miles and I have located only one fancier and he is 50 miles away. Too far to drive. So I do not visit anyone who has an interest in pigeons.
I discovered that there is only one feed house, in my area, that sells one kind of pigeon feed. And it is way out of my price range. So I feed whole corn, white soft wheat seeds, and Milo. I can feed chicken layer pellets but I’d rather feed the grain. Their housing is a major problem for me.
I guess I’ll try to keep these birds and read about and watch them on the internet, until God calls for me.
