Trenton Racing Pigeons


Anybody in this group fly (race) Trenton pigeons? How do they perform for you?

Last year a friend of mine gave me six Yellow Trentons that i put with my young bird race team.
When i got to the 50-70 mile training toss, i started losing them.
I was told that Trentons are good long distance birds, so i wonder what happened?

There was a thread oh here not long ago about somebody buying some white Trentons for like $90 a pair or something. Alot of the people on here said that was too much and that pure Trentons no longer existed because most of the people maintaining the line have died. Seems like they said the birds now called Trentons got their name from a resemblance of the old line.

I bought one young rust colored Trenton in an auction and lost it early in training. That is my only experience recently. But I used to have them back in the late 70's-early 80's, and they were very reliable long distance birds.

I would assume that there are not many, if any, so called "pure lines" of Trentons around. Possibly some, but I think you would have to look long and hard to find any that were not crossed, and yet still not imbred so much that they are puny and weak.

I can tell you this for sure I race with one of the biggest trenton guys there is, every weekend. He raced the 1000 miles with trentons many years. If I asked him for some old trenton blood like they used to fly from 1000 miles he would have a good laugh for sure.

Why is that, because his cant do the 1k or there are no pure Trentons anymore or because he thinks his are just the best?

Well first he would say there are no pigeons like that anymore. Then he would say the reason we quit flying the 1000 is because so many birds were lost people would not enter the race anymore. I know he would say this because I have already heard it.

If people had not lost so many birds doing it, it would have continued and we would have trenton "like" birds that could do 1000 miles today because they would still be proven to do so. There is no way to select 1000 mile stock 2 day therefore it does not exist. This last part is my opinion.
