Outstanding weekend (2/2)

It was a beautiful racing day last Saturday. The temperature rose to about 25 degrees and there was a strong head wind blowing from start till end. In the previous article you could read how our youngsters were outstanding on the Melun (310km) race. Here we will discuss the national Argenton (555km) race where we entered some old birds. It was a tough race for the birds so late on the season. This team has been raced on the widowhood system since April, so the season has been a long season for them. But also on this race they did it very well! We started with the 5° prize on the national level and had 8 birds in the national top 100.

Our pigeons won the following results:
