Nice looking hen and congrats on your success. Will you be flying Ob's again next year? If so are you going to continue flying her? I see your club on average took the top positions in the combine. Tough club you are flying in.

Ken,
Yes, I will be flying ob's again and she will continue to be on the team. I like to keep only birds who have proven themselves. I don't have room for a lot so only the best of the group are kept. 1038 also was pretty consistant for me. She was one of the birds I ended up stocking out of my race team of all the late hatches. I can honestly say I fly with some of the toughest guys here in our area. It's really hard to beat those guys who are in line. But never say never.. I was one of those who believe a bird can still perform even though I'm offline. I believe I proved my point with the birds I tested. Hard work and smarter birds is what we would need being offline from the group.

*** Thanks for all those comments also.. She flew her heart out! ***

Good going mate! Don't let being off the "line" deter you. I was off the line, and did'nt have a chance. Good thing about pigeon's is you "can" prove them wrong. Nice hen...race her next year.
