  1. Homing & Racing Pigeons
    This is my first post although I have read a lot over the last few months. This has been a very helpful group. I bought 8 white homing pigeons in April, they have multiplied to 22 since then. I fly them about 3-4 days a week by opening the loft and letting them out. They never go very far...
  2. Training and Behavior
    Has anyone trained flying from the opposite direction? We race from the south, southwest but I work in the east. It's about a 20 mile toss. I can obviously get more tosses in going the wrong direction and fewer in the right. Is this a bad thing?

    how do you compare your racing pigeons? for example i toss them all at 40 miles and they all come back at the same time. How do you know which one is better then? -single tosses?
