Racing Pigeons

Pigeon racing involves releasing specially bred and trained homing pigeons, which then return to their homes over carefully gauged distances. “When people see the birds flying and know they will return home from 500 plus miles, a lot of excitement is generated,” comments Mike Netzky, Flying Clovers 4-H Racing Pigeon Club leader. Join Mike on Wednesday, February 21 at 5:30 p.m. as he shows a film and discusses how to raise and race these special birds. All ages are welcome, the pigeons will be here too!
