Me and my uncle and few others were also going to go to Belgium in January as he knows of some bird fairs over there that he's bought from before over the years, but i realised yesterday my passport has expired and i won't be renewing it so wandered if any similar bird fairs i can attend over here.

Although iv been interested in the sport for best part of a decade i am only just getting started with it myself, so i don't want to spend anymore then £1000 on birds to start with and the 12 ybs are going to eat lot of that up so thought possibly at a fair might be able to have a deal on few more birds.

That's great news about the 12 ybs in January so a start of a race team.But if they are latebreds you won't be breeding from them until April so will have missed the early bred ybs ?

Not sure I follow you mate?...in short I have my loft finished and understandably i eventually want some birds in there lol. I want to get involved and race them next year. My understanding was one of 2 options...i get few stock birds in soon and eventually breed some early 2017 ybs out and or just buy some early 2017 ybs in and get going and race the yongbirds races.
I'll probably just get some ybs in january 2017.

In the meantime I wandered if there were any pigeon/bird fairs on this year as I could go have a look around and possibly buy few stock birds and breed some ybs out but the bird fairs are on too late in year for me by looks of it.

That's good you are thinking what you are doing.If I was you and want to get started I would look at getting ybs in between Jan/April to race.This way you don't have to worry about having stock birds (but always nice to breed your own)

I will have a look at what's here.If I can help I will give you some..Leave it with me !
If you had asked earlier on I would have given you some but 14 pairs going out this week.

Doncaster show is 12th November

Telford 26th November
