Pigeon Racing: by Wilson Stephens (Author)

RARE 1st edition Racing Pigeon Book! Comprehensive writing on many aspects of Racing Pigeons such as the Sport itself, breeding, feeding, how to start, the loft, training & race day.

Very RARE and hard to find book!  This is a first edition of this book!

Pigeon Racing is a nationwide sport with no fewer than a quarter of a million participants. Yet it makes little impact on the rest of the community. Everyone knows of it, little is known about it. This book reveals the reasons for the compulsive attractiveness for those competitors taking part, for their total commitment, and the rewards, which can run to the riches for those who succeed.

There are chapters on the way the sport has developed, the racing pigeon; the loft; training; race day; breeding and feeding; how to start; the great names. These different aspects are discussed and make a complex and very technical subject comprehensible to those who have no prior Knowledge of the sport , or tits organisation.
