What equipment do I need to have to start in your racing pigeon club in Lonsdale?
The Southern Districts Invitation Racing Pigeons Club in Lonsdale will advise you to start by looking at the expense of your loft, equipment and birds. How much you want to spend will determine the type of loft, it can be as simple or detailed depending on your budget. The birds probably don’t care if they live in a shed or a mansion. Most importantly build a loft that fits your yard and budget. Depending on the size of your available area you can build a small loft with one section or large loft with multiple sections for old birds and young birds. To fly racing pigeons you are going to need a computer timer, electronic antenna and chip ring for each pigeon’s leg.
How are pigeons trained?
It’s a process but not that complicated. Our Lonsdale racing pigeon club will assist you by starting with young birds. You need to raise and band your own by paring up your stock birds or you can get young pigeons from another pigeon fancier. Young birds around 30 to 60 days old are about the right age to start with. When young pigeons are around 30-60 days old they exit out of the loft onto the landing board through the exit opening/trap onto an aviary. After a week or two, the aviary is opened allowing the young birds to fly to the ground and around the loft area. A few weeks later the young birds start flying around the neighbourhood and then increase their flying time up to an hour or more.
