I just went and check on the loft and there it was sitting under the landing board. I caught it and was observing...

    Earlier today I was looking at one of my babies and it did look right. For some reason when it was inhailing it was opening his mouth and breathing through it. I open his mouth and saw a little white spot in the back of his throat. It didn't have a lot like canker does but it might be the start...

    I am a beginner with not a lot of money to invest in building a very big loft. I have 8 birds and have around a 4'x4'x4 loft with aviary. I'm looking at either expanding the loft I have now or building a new one. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas. I really need one for a breeding loft...

    Hi I keep hearing about the lighting and the darkening systems and I think it has something to do with the moulting but I'm not sure. Can someone explain the difference between the two and how they work. The advantage and disadvantages of one another
  19. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    I was wondering how long does the moulting stage usually last and is it ok to loft fly or train.

    Does anyone know about the Red Saddle Muelman racing homers. I am new to the pigeon game and very excited to learn and fly. I have joined a club. I have seen this breed and am thinking of getting a pair but wanted to know if anyone knew anything about them.
