I felt like taking pictures of my birds today so I took pictures of my cocks that don't really have any individual pictures. These are the ones in my cock section I have yet to move over birds from the YB section to the breeding sections that I want to stock. I also won't be breeding from all of these birds this year either, but might put them with my racing hens to at least get a young one off of them.



My foundation Fabry cock has bred diploma winners (including an equal first) and clock birds two years in a row.



Staf Van Reet cock from Mel's Loft off of his "2008" cock bred my best racing hen (diploma, as well) this year.



Grandson to I.F. Registered Champion pigeon that was Champion OB two years running in our club.

Cock that was donated to my clubs fundraiser (Schenectady Homing Pigeon Club Fundraiser Auction, might of seen it advertised at the show in CT on the 17th, thank you to all who came) by Galaxy Loft. He is a nice handling cock, very tame, and smart in my opinion.



The calmest cock in my loft but would not stay still for a picture. From a friend in the club. My friend has stocked several hens off of this cock and this cock bred me a good clock bird this year that would of won if she wasn't a bad trapper.

Gorgeous birds!!! Seems like you have them very well organized and accounted for also. Hard to do with numerous birds!

Than you Pete. Yes we do, but this upcoming year will be my very first old bird racing season, so I have never flown them out that far myself, but they go back to 500 mile winners. I plan on only flying them to 400 miles as yearlings (that is what my old bird team is made up of)

Thats a good idea only sending them to 400 miles, most yearlings are not ready for more. I have had a couple that were just ready for any thing and sent them out to 600 but it takes a special bird.

HAHAHA! They make fun of me at the club for cleaning so much they call me a "neat freak" I clean my loft everyday, and if I see a pigeon with droppings on it or something, then I'll take it and wash it up so it looks shiney again. Thank you very much for the compliment!!

Well this year I will fly double widowhood because I don't have the numbers, I don't want to loose any cocks because as 2 year olds I want to switch over to widowhood with cocks only, so I'll be playing it safe big time with this group of pigeons to build a team for the future.
