An Introduction of RFID Pigeon Tag and Pigeon Racing

RFID Pigeon Tag is used for pigeon racing, but it can also used in poultry management like chicken, ducks or other animals with slender feet. Our RFID pigeon tag can be customized as your order requirement, with encapsulation of ABS material, this mini custom RFID pigeon tag is waterproof in outdoor environment.

 

The mini RFID animal foot ring tag is worn as a foot ring for poultry tracing, such as birds, chicken and so on. Also, RFID animal tags provide an accurate and effective way for fowl tracing such as pigeon.

 

Pigeon racing is the sport of releasing specially trained racing pigeons, which then return to their homes over a carefully measured distance. The time it takes the animal to cover the specified distance is measured, the bird's rate of travel is calculated, and compared with all of the other pigeons in the race to determine which animal returned at the highest speed.

 

Pigeon racing requires a specific breed of pigeon bred for the sport, the Racing Homer. Competing pigeons are specially trained and conditioned for races that vary in distance for approximately 100 kilometers to 1,000 kilometers. Despite these lengths, races can be won and lost by seconds, so many different timing and measuring devices have been developed. The traditional timing method involves rubber rings being placed into a specially designed clock, whereas a newer development uses RFID tags to record arrival time.

 

While there is no definite proof, there are compelling reasons to think the sport of racing pigeons may go back at least as far as 220 AD or possibly earlier. The sport achieved a great deal of popularity in Belgium in the mid 19th century. The pigeon fanciers of Belgium were so taken with the hobby that they began to develop pigeons specially cultivated for fast flight and long endurance called Voyageurs. From Belgium, the modern version of the sport and the Voyageurs which the Flemish fanciers developed spread to most parts of the world.

 

Once quite popular, the Pigeon Racing has experienced a downturn in participants in some parts of the world in recent years, possibly due to the rising cost of living, ageing fanciers, and a severe lack of public interest. Hypersensitivity pneumonitis is also a reason why some people are leaving the sport.

 

One recent development in the sport of pigeon racing is "one loft racing", where birds are raced against each other under the same training regime, from the same location. The principle being to find the best individual race bird irrespective of the race trainer. This will determine which bird is then the most successful.

 

The latest development and preferred method for timing racing pigeons is the Electronic Timing System. The bird's arrival is recorded automatically. When using an electronic system, the pigeon fancier does not even have to be at the loft to clock the birds as they return. Birds are fitted with a band that has a tiny RFID chip in it which can be read when the bird comes home. At the home loft the electronic scanning records the pigeons arrival. The pad or antenna is placed at the entry point to the loft entrance and as the pigeon crosses it the electronic band is scanned. The clock is attached to the antennas. The serial number of the transponder ring is recorded along with the time of arrival. This is very similar to transponder timing systems used in human races.
