Strive to have your kits break big and your training must be geared towards all birds working as a team. They all came down together, trapped together, I mean everything together. Last thing he said was cull, cull, cull.  Bumpers, non-kiters, whimpy birds, slow eaters.  Cull them..

I have been mixing in brown rice into my kit bird feed for competition with good results in their performance

I believe that pigeons can only process a limited amount of protein before it simply excretes what it can't use.  I believe that protein value level to be around 15 to 17%.  When you are using too much protein the poop is light brown in color and tastes bad(LOL)

Moisture is the enemy in a loft.  Keep it dry and you will keep your birds healthy.  Moisture will breakdown your feed and make it toxic to the birds and it will cause your loft to deteriorate much more quickly.

The cost of conducting the World Cup and NBRC Fly's regionally usually exceeds the entry fees that we are paying.  Your RD covers the costs that fees do not cover.

I believe you can work hard at obtaining some level of "stock sense", but I am leaning towards that the truly great breeders possess a gift and that is what separates them from the rest of us.  It is a gift; either you have it or you don't

There still seems to be a debate on why Rollers roll.  Some say it is due to a seizure while others believe it to be more voluntary than involuntary.  In my observation I have noticed that they turn off the roll when being pursued and they will turn it off when living with nonperformance birds in just a few days.  If it was a seizure they would not have the ability to turn it off
