Welcome for 2014, wishing you and your family a merry X-MAS and a happy new year.
I started with my racing program for the year 2013/2014. Birds are in racing track, just completed a toss of 25 kms. I started with 41 birds and lost 3 birds in 7 kms to falcon.
The place where i tossed my birds is near a lake side, so many falcosn. All the birds came one by one. What ever heppening is for good only.
You can see my updates in my blogs. All the best for the people who ever racing.
Yours in Sports

There are different breads in pigeons you may aware of, I just listed below
3. Racing Homer
4. Fancy Pigeons
5. Feral Rock Pigeons (Jungle Pigeons)
Tippler: These are called high flying pigeons, which can fly in the air for long durations. These pigeons can fly in day and night with some lighting support. In different part of India the tournaments for these birds were conducted, which bird will fly for long time is consider as winner. Every tournament will have different set of rules. In Kanya kumari District, Coimbatore, Trichy, Karur and Chennai are famous for these birds in Tamil Nadu. Andra Pradesh, Kerala and some other state also having fanciers who keeping these birds.
Tumbler: These birds will fly long time in air and also tumble in the air. There are different Varity in these birds based on the tumbling style. These birds were famous in Bangalore, Trichy, Coimbatore and Chennai.
Racing Homers: These birds were name as homer because of their homing instinct. Where ever you released it will get back to your home. With proper feeding, caring and training these birds can race from a distance of 100 KM to 1800 KM in India. The quality of the bird can be identifying from the homing instinct while returning back from race. The birds which reach home faster is consider as winner. There are various clubs in India who conducting these races. Chennai is the hot spot for these homing birds, there are around 20 clubs and more than 500 fanciers who are in this racing sport.

As i am happy i thought of sharing the same joy with you all. One of my bird returned from the 1000 KM federation race on 29th April 2013. It took 43 days, i know this is not a great record but the way it came makes me happy. It was hit by falcon in its wing and also in it leg. It took time to get recover while on its flight, in its way back to his home. This bird i was expecing in a good timing, but may be due to the falcon attack it took these long days.
This bird flown 180, 250, 350, 700 and 1000 KM races this 2013 year race. In march 2013, when it was raced its age was 19 months old. Not even a 2 year old bird the way it flow is amazed.
Still have hope on 3 of my birds which need to be returned.

This is my second year of racing and its my first year for participating in these distance races. Every one in this pigeon sports will have same goal "Need to race for very long distance". Winning or loosing may depend on many factors, participating in 1000 KM and more than that distance itself a prestigeous one. When i start with my training for this year, i thought if i got a position to participate the 1000 KM race with one pigeon itself a big achievement. By god grace, blessing from my friends and family, with all my club members supports and also by lot of guidence given by my beloved friends from Salem, bangalore and Nagercoil i participated the 1000 KM race with 5 birds (4 male and 1 female).
We started from bangalore on 15th March and reached chennai on 16th morning. We went to one of our friend from chennai, his name is Vishnu. I need to thank him for his hospitality. He take care of us and our birds.
On 16th evening we basket our birds, due to some reason one of my bird got hurt in his legs. When i about to tag the bird i noticed it is bleeding in its legs. Still having the confidence on my bird i basket it with rest of my 4 birds.
On 18th Morning 6.30 AM they released the bird from the racing point which is Ramakona in Madhya Pradeesh state (1000 KM Air distance from bangalore).
So my dream of this year became true, now the question from every one and also including me is whether the birds will return in time or not...
Many mistake i did unknowingly in last moments, mab be due those know reason or can be due to some other unknown reasons i didn't received my birds with in board time of 7 days. But one of my bird reached home on 2nd April 2013 which is the 16th days.
I am very much happy to see my bird back in my loft. Its in normal condition, fully tired and taking good rest in the loft. The bird which got hurt in its leg, same bird only make home now from 1000 KM.
This bird was late in 500 KM race, so i directly put for 1000 KM. The time taken may not be a good, but the distance travelled by my bird is a great one with a 500 KM jump.
Still waiting for my 4 more birds, at any day they will make home if they are alive.

1 of my bird make home by 12:48:47 PM, its a young bird. It got 9th position in this 700 KM race. I am very much happy on its performance. Out of first 10 birds, only three are young birds which is less that a year old. amoung three, one is mine. Rest all are older birds.
Today race is also bit tough for birds due to rain and poor climate. Only three members got their birds on second day. I am waiting for my birds which are on their way to home. Hopefully they will arrive very soon.
Will update shortly

Little more happy i am after this race, because this time also i got 2nd position in the Derby Race (This time old and young birds can participate in it). I participated with 25 birds and 14 birds make home in board time (12 YB out of 14 YB, 1 Derby out of 2 Derby Birds and 2 open bird out of 9 open bird). Two more make it before evening (1 Young B and 1 open Bird). So total of 16 birds came on that day out of 25, i am waiting for my remaining 9 birds. Hopefully they will make home by the next day.
Surprisingly one bird return after 1 week from the 250 KM guntakal race today morning. While seeing me in morning she is very happy and showed her reaction to me. She is in very good condition, but feel little relaxed and tired after she reached her home. She is in full rest today.
