So I was looking around on https://www.pigeons.biz/forums/ and I saw several posts concerning what appears to be a growing problem in the racing sport. These fanciers stated HORRIBLE race results https://www.pigeons.biz/forums/f14/losses-116038.html and most thought that cell towers are to blame (from what I read.) Is this occurring everywhere, or primarily in the eastern side of the U.S./Canada? If anyone has experience with this, what were your loss rates? Some of my other ideas that could have happened include: bad weather, poor training, poor stock birds, and pollution. However, none of these are likely because: birds have been dealing with weather for a long time, training techniques have been previously successful, these birds have been bred for a long time to home accurately, and I don't think there's enough exposure to pollution to matter. What do you think, are these rare events or are they gradually becoming the norm? I don't have any experience with racing homers and would appreciate some information from breeders who do 60+ mile releases, for racing or dove release. I personally think cell towers do affect the birds, does anyone have any beliefs against this?
