Welcome!

I'm pretty excited about the new blog. I will be documenting my 2009 one loft race experience. It would've been nice to start this back in March, so I could have posted everything leading up to sending the youngsters off to the one loft pigeon races, but that'll have to wait until the following season.

Our breeders are currently going through the moult. The cocks are almost done and the hens are finishing up; mostly moulting down feathers at the moment. In my opinion, its important to give plenty of high protein feed, vitamins, minerals, fresh water daily with calcium supplement, and provide plenty of red, granite, and high calcium pigeon grit. This is the most important time of the year for your future/seasoned breeder stock.

One Loft Racer Tip: Do not neglect your breeders during the off season. A successful moult is the beggining to a profitable one loft race season. Put in the time now and you won't be sorry come October. -Reap what you sow!
