More than luck

Animal Scene - - ANIMAL APPEAL -

It takes more than luck for a fancier and the bird to win these races. Many a fancier fo­cuses on the loft­man­age­ment and health of their pi­geons, while some would rely on their pi­geon’s blood­line.

While all these fac­tors play in creat­ing the ul­ti­mate ath­lete of the sky, it takes still a spe­cial bal­ance and com­bi­na­tion to make your pi­geons out­per­form other pi­geons. These and all, I will try to dis­cuss in the com­ing is­sues.

Lim, con­sid­ered one of the le­gends of the Philip­pine Pi­geon Racing Sport, raced with the PHA from 1968 to 1990 with pi­geon blood­lines orig­i­nat­ing from birds of Joseph Van Den Broucke , Ko Nip­ius, Alois Stichel­baut and Dr. Arthur Bri­coux. Lim is pop­u­lar for his Pogi Line, O-kang and O-BU.
