i know some fanciers that do not do this, working on the theory that if a pigeon is too stupid to find food and water it has no place in their loft. when the yb’s can fly up to a perch and are starting to take off from the loft: before the evening feeding say mid afternoon i put them back in a crate within sight of the loft with a water trough on the outside (in case they need a drink) i leave them for few hours and then release them. if i have travelled a long way i put a drinker on the outside and fill with water hoping the pigeons will learn to take opportunities to drink. i also continue my basket training by putting my pigeons in a crate the night before a training toss, and leaving them in the back of pick up truck overnight.
a week or two prior to the first race i focus on release points 30, 15. and 10 miles on the expected ideal line. i look for a valley not to far from my loft roughly pointing in the direction of the race release points i train my pigeons along that valley and at 5 miles the hills on either side. i do not breed very early i like there to be sun on the back of my yb’s and as my stock lofts are very airy i like the temperature to be well above freezing before my birds mate and have young. to mitigate the risk, i change the ‘blind hours’ over slowly and fit a extraction fan to compensate for the blinds reducing ventilation and the climate becoming warmer at that time of year. i do not train to the feed i provide a good balanced diet that keeps in sync with the exercise and effort required.
