A picture of the top German racer "The Book". As a young bird, he was 3rd, 7th, 9th, 10th and his nestmate also added a 2nd and a 6th. The pigeon was bred (and named) by the super fancier Dieter Siebert of Germany. The pigeon also happens to be the full brother to my pigeon "The German"
(see picture below).
"The German" - Bred by Dieter Siebert of Germany.
The nestmate to "The German" finished 182 in the South African race and should be shipped here shortly.

Eye of the Mealy Cock
If you look very carefully, you will see four yellow dots in this eye that look something like a tiger paw. This is a very good picture of a very small cluster. Clusters tend to get bigger with age. I have always wondered if the number of spots grow or if the existing spots grow in size, but this particular cock is two years old and the number of spots has not changed.
The Daughter to the Mealy Cock
If you look very carefully, you will see that she also has a cluster that is not as pronounced as the father's, but it will eventually be bigger than his as the beads of the cluster grow.
