My Name is Steven Klaassen, started racing pigeons on and off, Since I was
13yrs of age,racing birds in the Cairns Racing Pigeon club.

Humidity,that has an affect to results of our racing performances in

Racing pigeons is a great hobby and it's there for all of us to enjoy whether you like sprint racing, middle distance racing, or the long distance racing.

I also like coloured racing pigeons as you'll see in my picture gallery to me coloured pigeons make no difference in the performance of a racing pigeon, it's just a colour. But, they must be raced to what ever level you choose too.I fine that coloured birds are very handy when you are breeding the young's,you can tell the sex of the young's as soon as they are hatched due to the sex linked coloured yellow's, browns and the reduced coloured birds. The Recessive colours are little bit tricky but very handy...
