Self Discipline pigeons
Birmingham Roller! There has been enough written about
this bird to fill a library. I think I have read most of what has been
written in my twenty plus years in the sport, and you probably have too. How
much of what has been written have you put into practice?
How many times have you heard someone say "Keep the best and cull the rest". How many people do you think fly their rollers, and watch the kit and then kill the front flier that turns the kit just before the break, or the bird that rushes to the front and locks its wings just before the kit breaks?
To fly a good kit, you must have the self discipline to watch the kit, and see what is happening and make a correction. You can still fly some good individual birds without doing this, but to fly a good KIT you must know what is going on in the kit. You must have the self discipline to watch the kit and the knowledge to know what makes a good kit. The best way to get this knowledge is to go to as many kit competitions as you can. Ask questions and be smart enough to learn from the good kit fliers.
Good kits are built by putting together a team of Birmingham Rollers that work together and compliment each other. The best kit is not always the person who is the best trainer, the person who works the hardest and that will be the person who has the most self discipline.
Some people are pigeon keepers and some are true roller fanciers. Most of you Know what I am talking about. You know the person who has two kit boxes and 50 pair of breeders, or the person that has rollers and 4 or 5 other kinds of pigeons. I have no bones to pick with these people, but these people canít be successful unless they are retired and work at raising and training rollers full time. Be honest with yourself, which do you want to be, a successful roller man that is a threat to win in the kit competition or a pigeon keeper who just enjoys having rollers and other birds? The decision is yours.
Competition also takes guts, when the kit box door opens and the birds form up for all to see, then the B.S. is over. You can brag before, but now it is the time for the truth, how brave are you? Are you a talker, a B.S.íer or a competitor, you are the one to make that decision.
Donít kid yourself we all know who are the talkers and who are the real "True Masters of the Birmingham Rollers" they are the winners, they are the ones who we want to go see their birds, they are the ones we want to get a few good birds to put with our family, they are the ones we want to see on fly day. They are the ones to compare our kits to.
