Interview with Mr. Teodorescu Ioan, FRSC, Bucharest

- Highlights -




RRP: What is your opinion on late breeds?

Ioan Teodorescu: Late youngsters are frequently remarkable birds, but you have to be very patient with them the next year. They must attend all the training sessions, then they have to be basketed for 1-2 races. But they achieve better results in their second year of life.    

RRP: Let’s talk about your widowers. Do you fly total widowhood?

Ioan Teodorescu: My widowhood team is made of 20 cocks. Among the 20 widowhood hens (the racing widowers’ mates) there are 4-5 females that I race because they are top birds. I select only those hens with top quality ancestors or those who proved to be good racers. They have to be birds to rely on because the cock must find them in the nestbox after coming home.

 Besides this widowhood team, I also have a second racing team made of yearlings (50 cocks and 50 hens). They are flown on the natural system, without being mated. They are separated by sexes. They don’t have a partner and reside in separate sections. It’s like a semi-widowhood system. I don’t race them the entire season, they are basketed only for 3-4 races. I keep an accurate racing record and those birds who perform better are basketed for a few extra races, but never across the border (more than 400 km).



My second team is trained separately, by sexes. Concerning the trainings around the loft, they begin on the 1st of January, on a daily basis. The young cocks are the first left outside (starting with 9 a.m., for almost 40 minutes). Once they are in, the young hens take their turn. So the first two hours in the morning belong to young pigeons. Then I release the widowers, and finally the widowhood hens.

As time goes by, the widowers are paired up (always on the 1st of March), then they go through a period of attraction towards the nest and babies. I breed only one caugh and 3-4 days after the hen laid her second round of eggs I remove the eggs and separate the female. The widower must raise the baby all by himself, thus becoming strongly attached to him (but I never let him pump the youngster until weaning in order not to exhaust him. I simply take the squeaker and put him in the breeding section). One week after that, I start luring the male with its hen. I use several methods while doing so: I turn the nestbowl upside down, or I place an extra plastic egg etc. Right before basketing I place the hens in their nestbox, but I never let them treading.    

I pay a special care on conditioning my birds. There are lots of recipes and they can be found everywhere in terms of pigeonsport magazines. Nowadays, each and every fancier has access to good pigeons, quality grain mixtures, electrolyts and conditioners. His only problem is to have enough money and time to take care of his birds.

Depending on the physical condition after returning home, my pigeons are given food and water either right away or after a certain period of time. It takes 1-2 days in terms of feeding and conditioning the birds after a race. Then you slowly start enriching the mixture, the pigeons are given vitamins and within the last few days they are carefully prepared for the next race.





RRP: From your perspective, is there any difference between the pigeons that race over the mountains and those that race over the plain field?

Ioan Teodorescu: There is such difference in theory, but I can’t tell whether it’s true or not. In my opinion, larger sized and light coloured pigeons are more vulnerable while flying over the mountains because they can be easily tracked down and chased by hawks, thus getting lost easier. On the countrary, a dark coloured pigeon, such as the Stichelbaut strain, who is also a smaller sized bird, but with great stamina and well adapted for long-distance races, is more suitable for races over the mountains. But this is rather a theoretical approach. In practice, one could never tell.  

 RRP: Given the fact you are a famous national pigeon judge, with wide experience, do you believe in eye sign?

Ioan Teodorescu: There was a lot of talk about the eye of the pigeon and it will continue to be subject matter because there is a great number of items: the orientation circle accuracy, the eye color, the pupil etc. I have a different theory instead: no matter its color, the best eye should display energy, expressiveness and brightness. I don’t have a fancy for a certain color. I had the opportunity to attend many national shows, to grade thousands of pigeons and the conclusion I finally reached is that the quality of a pigeon has nothing to do with eye color. 



RRP: Given your wide experience achieved in 40 years of pigeonsport activity at the highest level, what piece of advice would you pass to a fresher?

Ioan Teodorescu: First of all, he should get closer to an old fancier in order to learn from his experience and to challenge him for dialogue. The experience is everything in pigeon sport. Concerning the first acquisitions, my advice for young fanciers is to buy pigeons from champion birds if they can afford that. They should consider getting started with a small number of pigeons. Keep in mind that the health of the birds should be top priority. The origin of the pigeon is also very important.
