Those people should be hired by the pigeon clubs for early identification of the sex of squeakersSreesh,You will find that,those that can use the Magnet on a string,would be 95% correct.
Iam hoping for the 100% this season,Last season,I would of had the 100%.But I must of mixed the rings,when putting them on the squeakers.
It has no scientific basis, my grand-daughter believes in the tooth fairy and santa claus. If you believe it works and you feel comfortable doing it then by all means keep on doing it.I would have to beg the point there,I sex all my Pigeons,with a bit of string & a
Magnet.Now not all people have the Nack of doing it,a couple of the blokes in my club,that get no reaction at all.I use a fridge magnet.I cut it in half & put the 2 pcs together & drill hole the other end & put a light pcs of string through it,the
other end I have a bit of a point.When I ring my Squeakers,I put the ever rings
in the hens & odds on the cocks.On the odd ocaision,when they are both the same sex, I have been proven right.But as I said,not all people dose it work for.
Don't think so, breeding is directly related to availability of food. Scarcity of food reduces instinct for breeding.iv herd that you should cut down on the food ( not to stravation) and the males desire for sex is more than food and then you can find out.
