Since the first edition of Racing Pigeons was published there have been many changes, including significant recent developments in nutrition and disease prevention. These are all explained in detail in this new edition, together with a comparison of the different methods of training and conditioning pigeons to win races, including the latest Roundabout System.
In a compact and readable form, the book provides an up-to-date and comprehensive introduction to the art and science of pigeon racing, and is suitable for both the absolute beginner and the experienced old hand.
Colin Osman is not only a practical pigeon fancier himself but belongs to the third of four generations of a family that has been the acknowledged leader of the sport for well over one hundred years. His grandfather founded The Racing Pigeon, the leading journal for the sport, and during the fifty years that Colin himself worked on the magazine he had frequent opportunities to meet and exchange ideas with the most successful fanciers throughout the world.
