I find Rene, with a longer distence pigeon YBs',take a bit more time to meture, the Barker pigeon was bred for distence racing, People are trying to keep up with the sprint pigeons each week. With the likes of me, I dont know about you but, we cant afored to keep & feed pigeons that are not taking cards in our own club.
How many times have you heard members saying when racing in your own club, Yes I have had this & that Be it Van Geel, Barker, Van Wanray pigeon, & within the 1st year got rid of them as they could not keep up with my Sootjens, & Staff Van Reets. I know that some one will come on here & say I have got so & so distence pigeon that can win at sprint, But where did they buy them from, was it some one that has had them for a number of years, & over them years with getting rid of the pigeons that are late from that family of birds, keeping the faster pigeon, he is making his own family of distence pigeon a sprint pigeon family of his own making!!. (So think where you buy your pigeons, if you are buying a named strain of bird, look closely how the man has raced them over the years) Rolling Eyes

Well said m8 .
You can buy the best birds from the best flyers or studs in the land, but its the system
you want that suits them birds be it sprint, middle or long distance.
