Very interesting, Rod! Thank you for the link .. great images in that link too!
That was awesome! I want to see the rest of the video! The guy spends 5 months away from his family in a different loft training his yb's. They really take it seriously over there. Great video Rod thanks for sharing.I want to see the whole thing. Is there a full doc of this on the web/.
That would be great if you retire there! Then we here would have a place to crash if wanted to visit Taiwan to see the action! j/kThat is why I felt or have felt retiring in Taiwan. I saw the videos too and other related. I am swayed into retiring there and buying one of the great grandsons or great great great granddaughters of the winner.
You laugh but I would imagine that the losses are very high. If the birds can't cut it, there is no going down for a rest and then coming back the next day.Pigeons have to learn how to swim over there LOL
Is the whole video available somewhere online in english? I'd like to see the whole thing.Well ofcourse the losses are high, I've seen the whole video and they are way beyond America and Europe because it's an occupation over there for quadruple the money of here or Europe races. There series of races ypm to qualify are like 700-800ypm to goto the next stage and that's only training! I believe there are 5-7 series. Half the birds are already missing.Imo. Bloodlines don't matter after a while, where can you find a pigeon that flies through 70mph head winds in heavy rain in the ocean?whiplash galore Takes a tough pigeon who can swim LOL! I think it's like $1000-$5000 a band us money.
