    Please add your experience with young birds this year; I'm curious. I started YB season with about 27 birds, I have 8 left. The birds come from families that have flown well for years by other guys. They have won money for me and the handlers, got some top finishes at 500 and 600 mile races...

    2 pigeons came to our barn. They are banded but I am not able to catch them, they seem friendly but are scared. They are greyish with white caps. They have been here 4 days. I am afraid they will be eaten by something, as we are deep in the woods. Anybody want them? Columbia, CT

    I let my young birds out for the first full day yesterday. After a week or so of letting them out at dusk for an hour or so and then calling them in. Well to make a long story short, 5 of my 8 young birds trapped themselves no problem yesterday afternoon while 3 of them did not come in. I...

    Just went and picked up a banded 09 bird from friend of mine. This is a pretty little blue check homer with a foy's band. Dick contacted Foy's but they didn't have contact info for him.
