Why take up pigeon racing ?
Pigeon racing is one of the most enjoyable, relaxing and fulfilling pastimes or hobbies available. It gives you a sense of purpose and you constantly have something to look forward to. It may be the race season, the breeding season, birds returning from a race or just preparing your birds for a race. Most flyers continue to race all their lives -such is the allure of this sport.
For many people it imparts a sense of structure to their lives and purpose in what they do. It certainly serves as
an enjoyable distraction similar to many sports.
A significant number of flyers enjoy the breeding side of the sport. Their quest is to develop a bloodline with a certain capability. Often the best flyers have achieved this and have a deep understanding and appreciation for their family of birds. This understanding and the bond they have with their birds makes them very competitive flyers.
