*There was an earthquake the day of the 300 mile race. There were no day birds and only 2 birds made it home the second day. If there was ever a race that made all the hard work I put into the birds feel meaningless, this was it. But hey, that's pigeon racing; you cannot control what nature throws at you the day of a race. I was excited to get an email from Bill letting us know that 0604-AU09-PROP - "Strikes Twice" had made it home the 3rd or 4th day. I will use him in the breeding loft this year, he is a super.
