A day to day journal of a racing pigeon young bird team's training and races.
Wednesday, August 10, 2011
It is going to be exciting this year. I still need to get all the racing bands on the birds and get them in the computer. I hope to get them used to the computer trap sooner this year (that would be right now!). I took a week off to medicate them. I believe many of them had respiratory infections. They are mostly looking better now. I hope to jump them up to 12 miles tomorrow. 16 days until we basket for the first race. Yikes! I'll be lucky to get them trained out as far as I like (64 miles).
