Secret #2: Quality over Quantity

Secret #2:  Quality over Quantity

DO NOT OVER CROWD YOUR LOFT (Racing or Breeding).  Quantity offers only cost and wasted time.  Quality is profitable and rewarding.  Once you learn the advantage of quality above quantity, put it into practice.

People are creatures of habit.  The easiest thing to do is repeat the same past mistakes.  Those fanciers who raise and train 100-200 squeakers every year with the hope of getting one or two good pigeons in their lofts take the longest and most costly road to success.  Many times there is quality in an overcrowded loft, but because the birds are overcrowded, their health and performance is poor.  What qualities do we look for in a good pigeon?

    The writer of this articles assumes that if a fancier produces 100-200 youngsters that they are over crowded. This may, or may not be the case, but it also implies that those who produce less then 100 youngsters are not overcrowded. Overcrowding is a very important issue, and perhaps the number #1 mistake that fanciers make. I am thinking that an overcrowded loft has to do with too many pigeons in the available space, and one can have a very manageable ideal number of pigeons for the amount of available space and still not address the issue that the space is filled with very average instead of high quality pigeons.

    AGREED it’s like trying to sleep in the same bed with 3 brothers and 2 sisters sooner or later your going to sleep on the floor no soon after the floor your going to find somewhere else to sleep,You’ll be sleeping on the job, Even late to and from work SAME THING WITH YOUR PIGEONS that’s why they don’t come home on training tosses and if they even show up on race day there to late to win anything and to tired to eat IF YOU HAVE PIGEONS ON THE FLOOR YOUR LOFT IS OVER CROWDED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Spot on I could not agree more,I beleive at least 95% of the fancy are guilty of overcrowding which does not give the possable stars of the loft to shine through.
    Also they keep breeding off the same duffers every year,telling themselves oh one more chance,you are only kidding yourselves.
    Remember pigeons are like marines,you only need a few good ones.
