Originally published in the early 1930s. The author Lt. Col. A. H. Osman was a recognised expert on all aspects of pigeon racing and breeding. This book was originally written in answer to the many questions he received relating to getting birds fit and their training and preparation for long distance racing. The illustrated contents include: Importance of Strain - Young Birds - Yearlings - Third Season Pigeons - Old Birds - Late Birds - Feeding - Exercise etc. Many of the earliest books on pigeons, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. Home Farm Books are republishing many of these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.
