Good read Stu, lovely set up, cracking looking birds and fantastic results. He certainly puts some work and money into them. Surprised to read his oldest racing cocks are only 3 year olds. Sounds like there are some great fliers in Ireland flying in tough conditions. Some now familiar families kept there, I did have a Noel Peirren hen many years ago, didn't realise people still had them. I got her as a ten year old from Louella, unfortunately she didn't produce anything significant for me.

My 4 foundation pigeons that I bought at the end of 2015 came from Louella. This season will show if they were any good as I'll be racing their offspring. I did also buy 12 youngsters for racing from them back in Cornwall in 1997. I did cull one when they arrived because I didn't like it, but after the hawks had taken half of them, I ended up with 2 that done very well. One in particular won several races and was 3rd Cornish Combine and also bred winners.

I think I paid £45 for the Noel Pierren hen George, only got a certificate of origin as she was Belgium wrung. She was an ex stock hen and as I say was 10 year old, she was a cracking hen. I only got one year's breeding out of her before I moved house so she never really got the chance. Good pigeons can come from a top stud or the guy down the road, cost thousands or nothing at all, but they are only any good if our management doesn't let them down.
