I picked up a couple of new training crates a few days ago. These are hand made by a local man who has been involved with racing pigeons for over 50 years. Heinz is at least 80 years old and still making great quality pieces of woodwork for our local pigeon racers. He was one of the founding members of the Western Flyers Association. It was neat to hear some of his stories and great to hear some of his stories.
His design is simple, light weight, and has a really neat top door release design. I’m sure these crates will last me a very long time. I’ll be heading back at some point for a couple of his smaller ones.
