Racing Pigeons What began as a stroll through the plot that I live in, became an extremely educational afternoon.
The sun was shining, just after a beautiful rainfall and everything seemed clean and fresh. I wandered along the the side of the house, when the farmers wife came out to greet me. Well, the next thing, I was amazed at all the hard work that was going into, monitoring,collecting,timing and waiting pandora charms 2013 for their different pigeons to come home. To then come over the base line, to be recorded in. The one pigeon in particular, gave countless problems, as it would not come down from the roof and into it's box. Therefore making it impossible to record it's time. During this time I learnt, that in fact eight pigeons have not returned home in the past two days. This apparently is very common. They either end up flying into another flock and return to the incorrect place or sometimes are to never to return. Each pigeon is fitted with a number and a club registration code, when it reaches about the age of seven days. This remains on the bird permanently and cannot be removed. Then there are other bands fitted to the opposite leg, which indicate year of birth. Blue, green, red and so on. After absorbing the beauty in these particular pigeons and the strength of their bodies, I happened to notice the amazing colours in their feathers, ranging from grey, white, brown, black to shimmering purple, green and even a pink hue in some. Their eyes too differ in colour, as well as their beaks. Each and every bird was sectioned off and had a seperate box, one per bird. Which I believe they often even fight over as to who gets which box. Not that the boxes differ, apart from the height. Then, in the one corner, I noticed two birds behaving rather strangely. They were apparently showing off for each other, a male and a female. In two different boxes, dancing, spreading their wings, walking back and forth. To me it seemed like a whole lot pandora charm bracelet charms of wasted time but when I think of the reality of it, it's actually not. This otherwise, can be damaged and then it takes approximately another whole year, before the bird can race again. This sport costs on an average of R 7000 00 SA RAND per annum. So not to be sniffed at, quite a pricey exercise. Involving, correct diet, medical treatments and lots of intense work. I am looking forward to the racing season, as I do believe I could quite enjoy this sport, so long as it is not in any way cruel.
