Welcome to the French Young Bird Derby, a supremely challenging One Loft Race. We have tens of thousands of birds pass through our area every week, with big liberations at weekends. Your racing pigeons will need their wits about them until the finish. One Loft Racing has grown in popularity over the years, as fanciers seek the ultimate test of breeding in a One Loft Pigeon Race format. Can they perform when they are trained by others? With all entrants being treated the same, fairly. There are also big prizes to be won, with some of the most valuable pigeon races in the world being One Loft Races. Look at pigeon races like the Belgian Masters and South African Million Dollar Pigeon Race and you will see just how big the prizes are, we are no different!

Still not sure if it’s for you? Take a look at the feedback we had from last year’s competitors.



Definitely the best One Loft Race I have taken part in, John & Lou care so much about the race and welfare of the birds, they know their stuff, and the birds are taught to trap well, which can make the difference between prize money and nothing. Bring on next year!!”


I would just like to say a very well done to Louise and co on running such a good one loft race all birds are always first priority and the constant updates are brilliant and the best thing is if you do get to win any money in the final or other races it’s paid out within days so good luck for the future, can’t wait to support”
