The good flying pigeon should have many features but according to my experience and after getting help from the experience of other fancier the good flying tippler should be’

Flight
Should start flying early and more time is spent in the air more it is better

Intelligence
Should be very early familiar with his place and always return to its place.

Beautiful
It looks beautiful and good-looking.

Brave
In difficult conditions especially in bad weather it should fight like a solider

Art of Feeding to the flying birds
For flying birds we should give food once in a day normally after noon at about 4.00 p.m.

Art of Flying Tipplers
This is very time consuming laborious and hard working excersise, especially in our hot weather when temperature is above hundred in the month of May and June. This is my experience that the weight of the pigeon is very important when flying and over weight pigeon could not fly longer times. I think barley is best to be given to the flying birds although many fanciers give them millet. Three months before the competitions all the flying and wings of the tail are plucked. During this time the pigeon should be served with protein rich diet (pulses, soybean, calcium and dry milk) other wise the wings could be weak. The pigeon when flown should be hungry. If the pigeon are flown early in the morning around 6.00 Am. the last food should be given a day before at about 4.00 p.m. but water should be given two hours before flying. Many teachers (competitions are normally done under the supervision of Ustad (teacher) gives tablet of almonds for energy. In our competition local prescriptions (given to the flying birds to enhance their time in flight ) are numerous and many, all are given by teachers. The role of teacher is very important; he is the most respected and honorable person in pigeon competitions.

Competitions
Tipplers are flown twice in a year. Once in the month of May and June and at the end of September or start of October. Normally five or seven pigeons are flown in the competition known as bazi. Normally three or five games are held in one competition and winner would be who won two or three of the games respectively. The total hours are computed for the final result. Normally in the month of February the males and females are separated and their primary flight feathers are plucked. After ten days all the tail feathers are plucked. The birds are never flown when their flight feathers are not completed. They should be properly served with multivitamins, and other protein rich diet is given to the birds. In normal feed they are given wheat and pulses. After the completion of their flight feathers they should be kept in pens.

The pigeons are dewormed before the competition. Then are kept outside so they flew away according to their will and should be closed after noon and given food. In early month of April flew them at 10 am and reduce the timing gradually. First two days only males should be flown and next two days only the females flown. When their timing is prolonged they should be given rest. For example the pigeon who flew more should be given two days rest and who don’t flew too much should be given one day rest. In this manner the pigeon don’t lose weight so rapidly. On the rest day the pigeon should be given bread boiled in oil. When they flew back they should be given water but very few.

The bird after flight should be held in the hand and its arms and legs should be messaged. First they should be given bread and after ten minutes the water should be given. At this stage the role of teacher is very important because according to the temperature on that particular day the medicine should be given to the pigeon. Few prescriptions are hot for the pigeon and few cool them off. Normally the rice cooked in boiled water given to the pigeons. The record of every bird flight should be maintained. One day before the competition the pigeon who are going in the completions should be served at 3.pm. In the evening only water should be given. At 10.00 p.m. if their crop is empty they are given bread cooked in oil. The pigeons should be kept completely undisturbed during the rest of the time. In the morning a few drops of water should be given. The pigeon are flown in kits usually of 5 or 7 birds.

Teacher
Normally all the competitions are held under the supervision of a teacher. A knowledgeable teacher is very respectable person in pigeon flying peoples. The students are very proud of winning the races and they respect their teacher very much. Normally competitions are held in the name of the teachers and not in the name of students. Teacher looks after the pigeons when they flew back, select and decide the pigeon for flying, give medications to the pigeon during the training period and especially when pigeon returned after their long flight. He selects the pigeon that would be flown in the competition.

Judges
The competitions are supervised by munsifs (judges). He is also very respectable person and treated with great honor. He acts as supervisor of the game. The appointment of judges is mutually agreed by both the parties or by the club. All the pigeons flow/n in the competition should be affixed stamp on their tail feather one-day before the competition. This stamp is checked when the pigeon is returned to its loft. Judge notes the touch down time of the pigeon. Heavy betting is involved in pigeon flying so the chances of fraud are too much. The judge should be a very experienced and active fancier.

Disqualification in the race
The pigeon that disqualify from the race would be as under: 1- when it landed on the roof top of some other house other than its own 2- The pigeon who landed is without the stamp mark affixed on the pigeon one day before by the judge 3- The pigeon when came down should be come straight from the sky and not if it comes flown lengthwise.
