1. How are your droppings? Rock solid? Color?
2. Can you detail your training schedule up to this point?
How many training tosses on the birds and what distances?
3. What is your medication routine?
4. Are your birds skinny?
5. How are the returns on the "few of us drop the birds off" ?

Take the birds yourself.
There was a case locally years ago when the resident "expert" was training birds for the club. Turned out the birds were being kept in the back of a truck for hours on end as he ran personal errands and the like. The bad returns in this case, had little to do with hawks or wires. :rolleyes:

Maybe he is having a pigeon auction on his doorstep after you drop them off. Seriously though I would not trust my birds to be trained by anyone else. Besides where is the fun in that?
