Like all aspects of our sport, this next question I'd like to pose is, "What is considered to be a pigeon's prime?" For racing, for breeding?
Some strains mature a little slower....but if you look at the National Champions in Europe, where they can end up competeing with tens of thousands of other birds, the age factor has been getting younger. IMHO, the "typical" National Champ is now under 3 years of age, and I also suspect, that is their prime breeding years also.

I'll go for 3 years. If I am optimistic between 3-5 years because that is when feral pigeons die. So if ferals die around that age and they live a hard life, then I'll say their health probably declines around that time. I am just correlating between ferals and racing homers which may not actually have any correlation at all!
