PostSubject: Racing natural system   Thu Feb 03, 2011 10:02 pm

If you are racing your pigeons on the natural system, and a hen and cock show signs of pairing, separate the two for a couple of days and then put them back together for about thirty to 40 minutes just prior to crating them. The hens cycle will be dissrupted because of the separation, and this will delay the laying process. The separation will also increase both pigeons desire for one another. Letting them see one another for just a few minutes before basketing will increase the bond and also  strengthen their desire for home.
Here is another natural system tip. When a pair has laid and has been sitting for several days, try adding an egg to the nest every other day until they are sitting on 5 or six eggs. Then take the male pigeon and place him in a box or spare cage so that he cannot see his loft, his mate, or his nest. You should do this the night before basketting. Let me explain,if you basket on Friday night, take the cock away on Thursday night. The female won’t realize that the cock is isn’t there until it is his time to care for the nest the following day. She will be extremely reluctant to leave the nest, or even to eat, because of the added eggs and the fact that her mate is not available to take his turn, so she will become even more attached to the nest than normal. You may have to physically take her from the nest and feed her in a separate box so she can drink and eat.
When I take the female away, if time permits,I like to let the cock into the loft. He will see that his nest is unprotected and will hurry to take his turn on the eggs. I let him settle on the nest for a few minutes and then take him away PRIOR TO allowing his female back into the loft. Both birds will race extra hard to come home to protect those eggs when a question has been put into their minds regarding their responsibility for the nest!
Another trick when racing pigeons on the natural system, when a pair starts to nest,  take away one of the mates. This can be either the male or the female, but I like to take out the hen.Let the cock take another mate, and then  take out that mate. When shipping day comes,let both females in with the cock for twenty to 30 minutes, but don’t allow the hens to begin a heavy battle because they could lose form. Ship them all to the race. This trick can be used all season long to motivate either or all of the pigeons at different times.
