In my opinion the moulting period is one of the most important periods of the year. For many fanciers it’s a time during which they take their eyes off the pigeons and spend more time on their family and other priorities, like a much deserved holiday. That’s of course understandable, especially in case of disappointing performances during the flight season. Then it’s often hard for a
while to gain the motivation to provide the pigeons with all the attention the need during this period. It’s however more than important. Underestimating the importance of the moult is the prelude to disappointments in the following year.
