The following birds are available for sale at this time. They are priced so the average person can afford them. So don't pass up some good birds just because they're not priced at several hundred dollars each. If you're at the other end of the financial spectrum, you need to realize that these are pedigreed animals and not street pigeons. The day of the five-dollar pigeon is long gone. They are priced so I can receive some reasonable return on the investment I have made in feed, time caring for them, etc.

What is a pigeon really worth? The value of a pigeon depends on three factors, and you can read about them here.

You will find some rare-colored birds among those listed. It is important to remember that we are a FLYING loft, not a COLOR loft. Our rare colors are required to fly right with the other birds. We sell youngsters that we raise out of our flyers, but we will seldom sell the rare-colored flyers themselves because we will be using them later as breeders.

I am selling pigeons, not paper, but almost all of those listed below have extensive pedigrees. I will provide whatever pedigree information I have on each bird listed. Feel free to email me and request an electronic copy of the pedigree of any bird listed here.

PLEASE NOTE: The USPS has recently hit us with asignificant increase in postal rates, in some cases almost double what they had been. Therefore, if birds are to be shipped to you (shipping to destinations in the USA only), the shipping charge will be as follows: $70 for one or two birds, $120 for 3 or 4 birds, $175 for 5 or 6 birds, and $200 for 7 or 8 birds to cover the cost of postage and a special USPS-approved shipping box. (Larger boxes not only cost more, but they also mean even more weight, hence the major jump in shipping costs as the number of birds increases.) More than 4 birds will require a second box, and shipping on American Giant Homers (when available) will incur a 25% surcharge due to the additional weight of the much larger birds.

Payment can be made via money order (I do not accept personal checks) or you can use Visa or Mastercard by clicking on the Paypal logo below. Paypal is preferred.

1.

Sale Pending July 2019 hatch recessive yellow cock, no. 9068. This is a small-to-medium sized cock that is 3/4 Hollywood and 1/4 Husken/VanRiel. He does have several white tails feathers and some minor mottling on the wingshield. He has been vaccinated for PMV and is healthy, active, and ready to mate. Pedigree goes back to 6 of the 8 great grandparents. Price: $100. - Sale Pending (MG)

2. Ash red and white splash cock no. 9107, Janssen and Delbar mix. The Delbar side consists of long-distance whites down from the loft of C. Korstanje of The Netherlands, my original breeders being children of the original CBS imports. Sire is pure white, about 3/4 Delbar and 1/4 Janssen. Dam is a "chrome" (dilulte ash red barless) that is a granddaughter of a race winner and a daughter of a diploma winner. She is also heavy in the genes of Blue Miracle on her mothers side. Full pedigree. Price: $25
3. Extremely rare blue grizzle almond cock no, 8152. This pigeon is a July 2018 hatch bred from my flying team. Sire is a homozygous blue grizzle (most would call him a "white grizzle"), pure Wegge, that has flown nine races out to 300 miles. Dam is an almond HVR cross, approximately 3/4 HVR and 1/4 Janssen who flew 100 and 130 as a young bird but was not shipped as a yearling and is in the stock loft this year. Price: $50
4. Strong, robust 2018 silver cock no. 8593 that carries dilute and cherry, and maybe barless as well, since his dam carried it. Sire was a cherry that was unflown but whose siblings and half-siblings flew for me, some of whom won diplomas. Dam was a yellow bar, which means he must carry dilute. Price: $50
5. June hatch blue check pied hen no. 9027. Sire is an ash red barred opal out of a long line of my opal/cherry family. Dam is out of "Snake River"a spread recessive opal cock that as a young bird was 1st club @ 200 miles one week and 1st to loft and 4th club @ 130 miles the following week prior to being stocked as a yearling. Dam's mother was bred by Ron Pairan, "AU Legend of the Sport", out of his SAMDPR family. Price: $50
6. Sale Pending Here is a very late hatch 2017 dark check cock no. 6539 that is wearing a 2016 band. Needless to say, he is unflown, but he is loaded with the genes of "Heisenberg", a big Janssen cock that was by far my best flyer since 2000. 6539 is out of a brother x sister mating, so the inbreeding becomes apparent in the fact that he is a relatively small cock. However, both parents are normal size. Full Pedigree. Price reduced: $50 - Sale Pending (KW)
7. 2018 qualmond cock no. 8327. This is a pigeon I had held back for breeding, but the old hen he was mated to failed to lay this past year. I have two siblings on my current team. Sire was bred by Ron Pairan and is out of one of Ron's many AU Registered Champions. Dam is a qualmond I raised and she flew 100 twice and 130 once as a young bird prior to being stocked as a yearling. She is out of a "faded" cock I purchased from Carl Paystrup that is the son of an AU Marathon Ace pigeon when mated to a runner-up AU Marathon Ace. Price: $50
7. Sale Pending  2016 Meuleman cock no. 16092 no. RPUSA 16092, bred by Michael Sohrdahl, RacingPigeonUSA. Fully pedigreed and goes back to several birds from The Netherlands and Belgium via CBS and Oak Haven Farms. I obtained this bird and his mate in a trade about a year ago but have not bred from them due to space limitations. I wanted to use them in 2020 but have decided to let them go. (His mate is a blue bar pied that carries the gene for recessive red. If you are interested in purchasing them as a pair, please contact me. The price quoted here is for the cock only.) Price: $150 (Or combine with the hen in lot no. 10 below and buy the pair for $250.) - Sale Pending (MG)
9. Sale Pending  2016 Meuleman hen no. RPUSA 16150, bred by Michael Sohrdahl, RacingPigeonUSA. Fully pedigreed and goes back to several birds from the Hackemer Meulemans, along with other great names as well as British and Dutch imports. Sire is a brother of a 300-mile winner. Dam is down from a 300-mile winner. This is the mate of the cock listed in lot 13 above. Price: $150 (Combine with the cock above and you can purchase the mated pair for $250.) - Sale Pending (MG)
10. May hatch indigo cock no. 9018. Sire is a recessive red "Hollywood" cock, out of "Red Baron" and "Holly", both bred by Ron Deisher. Dam is an andalusian who carries the gene for recessive red and has at least two AU Registered Champions in her pedigree. She is also down from my Heisenberg Janssen family on her sire's side. This is going to be a large bird and he already fills up both hands, but at the same time handles extremely well. Indigo is know to enhance recessive red, so if you like recessive red here is a great opportunity to add more flying genes and enhance the color as well. Priced at about half her true value. Full pedigree. Price: $50
11. 2014 blue bar cock no. 4922. Performance pedigree. Although parents did not fly, all four grandparents were flown with maternal grandsire being an AU Elite Champion. Paternal grandsire flew 6 races out to 250 miles. Blue Miracle Janssen, Ken Christopher Vanloon, and my own “Iceman”, a 300-mile winner, on sire’s side; John Beeson’s Perfection Loft on dam’s side. Dam is also the mother of a race winner. This pigeon carries the gene for barless. Click here to see pedigree. Price: $50
12. Large, magnificent 2017 reduced blue check cock. He's tall, he's regal, he's beautiful. This has been one of my primary breeders the last two years and he is now being made available to serious-minded color breeders who also expect their birds to fly competitively for them. AU 17 WCOF 7400. His combined attitude, carriage, and structure is as good as you will find on any pigeon. We will be breeding out of a son, a daughter, and two grandsons this year. This is the ideal mate for one of your best hens in order to produce birds that are both beautiful and of good racing quality. He is primarily Janssen with some Flor Engels. Sire was bred by Perfection Loft of John Beeson in Kansas and is a son of "Man-O-War's Soldier" an AU Elite Champion and 2-time Hall of Fame winner. Dam is a granddaughter of "Heisenberg" one of my best flyers since 2000. If mated to a non-reduced hen 7400 will give you a sex-linked mating in which ALL his daughters will be reduced and ALL his sons will carry reduced. Price: $250 firm.
13. November hatch grizzle no. 9131, appears to be a cock but sex is not guaranteed. Sire is a homozygous blue grizzle (most would call him a "white grizzle"), pure Wegge, that has flown nine races out to 300 miles. Dam is a blue check Janssen that flew 100 as a young bird but returned injured and flew no additional races that year. She did fly 180 as yearling, however. Price: $25
14. Faded blue cock no. 6534. This is a slick, solid, medium size cock that looks great and handles extremely well. He was bred by a friend of mine out of one of my birds. He carries the genes for brown, barless (2 of his daughters are listed below) and dillute. I do not have details on his sire since my friend has retired from the sport and did not keep pedigrees, but his dam is a faded brown qualmond that is down from my brown barless family which is straight down from "The Iceman", an ash red barless that was 1st club at 300 miles as a yearling.. Pedigree is complete on dam's side, but no information on sire's side. Price: $75.
15 True silver barless no. 372. Based on her breeding this should be a hen, but she does look and feel pretty strong, so at this point I cannot guarantee sex at this time. She is out of the faded cock above and a brown barless hen from Dennis Kuhn. I did not raise her, and the breeder did not give me a pedigree, so the only pedigree info I have on her would be what I have on the faded cock. Price: $50
16.

2019 black cock no. 9039. Poor color but very well bred. This is a medium-sized cock out of a very large male with excellent black color. As a matter of fact, two of his older sisters are half again as big as he is. Sire is a race winner bred by Bob Metcalf. Placed 1st@250 v 46b 6lofts, 2nd @ 190 vs 52 b 6L, 3rd@180 v 80b 6L in 2012 OBs. Additional race records and pedigree on sire are not available since the breeder did not keep detailed records and stopped flying shortly after. Mother of 9039 is unflown but she is a daughter of an AU Registered Champion with the following achievements on Race Day: 4th 245 miles v 99b, 7th 245 miles v 124 b, 3rd 161 miles v 91 b, 5th 207 miles v 513 b, 2nd 325 miles v 383 b, 5th 207 miles v 536 b.That daughter of the AU Champion was mated to the son of an AU Elite Champion at the time. 9039 is a June hatch, fully matured and ready to mate. Price: $100.

17. July hatch grizzle cock no. 9074. This is a truly magnificent pigeon who is fully mature and ready to mate. He is a blend of the old-line Wegges and my own family of opals on his sire's side and white Dworek and Delbar on his dam's side. He is the son of a race winner. His sire flew 100 and 180 as a young bird, winning the 180 by several minutes. He then flew 180, 130, 180 as a yearling, placing 5th at 180. Dam flew 100 as a YB but was not flown as a yearling due to problems with our liberator. This is a pigeon a really wanted to keep for breeding but my current numbers won't let me. Full pedigree. Price: $100
18. November hatch grizzle no. 9130, appears to be a hen but sex is not guaranteed. This is the nestmate of lot no. 13 above. Sire is a homozygous blue grizzle (most would call him a "white grizzle"), pure Wegge, that has flown nine races out to 300 miles. Dam is a blue check Janssen that flew 100 as a young bird but returned injured and flew no additional races that year. She did fly 180 as yearling, however. Price: $25
19.

Sale Pending July hatch red check cock no. 9082. Sex is guaranteed. Sire is the cock listed above in lot no. 4. Sire carries the gene for dilute (and is thus capable of raising yellow bars) so there is a 50% chance 9082 also carries it. It is also very possible that this pigeon is also recessive opal, but that is very difficult to identify in ash reds. Dam is a daughter of "Snake River", a beautiful "white lace" spread recessive opal who won 1st club at 200 miles as a young bird. He also came back the next week and won 4th club at 130 miles. Dam is from Ron Pairan, AU Legend of the Sport, of Ohio and is down from his South African family. Price: $50 - Sale Pending (HE)

20. July hatch large blue check cock no. 9075. Son of a race winner! Not only is his sire a race winner, but as a yearling he flew three races and placed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in them all. Sire is "El Jugador" and he is out of "The Real Deal" a top breeder from PNA Loft in California and a yellow bar hen that is a granddaughter of "The Iceman", a 300-mile winner for us. Dam flew 130 and 180 as a young bird and is out of a pair of birds that are both down from "The Garfield Hit Pair" from the Garfield Brothers in Utah. Dam is also a sister to a race winner. This is a large pigeon, just like his mother and grandfather. He is another that I would dearly like to keep as a breeder but tough decisions are being made as I finish up final matings for this year. Full pedigree. Priced at about half his true worth. Price: $100 NhSonatch blue check cock.
21. Another July hatch, this one being a white grizzle cock no. 9079, also bred from my flyers. Sire is a white cock that flew 6 races out to 300 miles, placing 3rd on the 300. Dam is also a white that is Houben, Delbar and Janssen; and whose mother flew 4 races out to 180 miles prior to being stocked. Pedigree includes 6 of the 8 great-grandparents. Price: $75
22. July 2019 hatch blue bar cock no 9033, carries the gene for reduced. Mate him to any hen and half his daughters will be reduced. Mate him to a reduced hen and half of all his young will be reduced in both sexes. Sire is a reduced cock that is bred down from my years-old reduced family that is based on flying caliber Janssens. Dam is a black that is a granddaughter to an AU Registered Champion on one side and "Snake River" a 200-mile winner on the other side. Full pedigree. Price: $50
22. Magnificent white cock no. 5722-15 right out of our breeding loft. Sire is Clausing Houben, bred by Sal Hernandez out of a pair of Clausing birds. Behind this cock is "White Gold", a son of Clausing's famous "410" and also "Ziko II". Dam of 5722 is white Delbar (600-mile stock) on one side and Janssen-Meulman on the other side. Full pedigree. Price: $100
24. AU 19 LIMA 9121. I'm going to call this a "Sandy" for lack of a better name, since the almond gene is involved but is not expressing itself very well. It appears to be a hen; not 100% sure but pretty confident it is. This is an August 2019 hatch out of an almond cock and a barless blue hen, both from my flying team. Sire flew 3 races out to 170 miles, dam flew 1 race of 100 miles. (Our club flew a limited race schedule the last few year.) Full pedigree Price: $25

25. White grizzle hen no. 9024-19; sire is a race winner. She is a blend of the old-line Wegges and my own family of opals on her sire's side and white Dworek and Delbar on her dam's side. She is the daughter of a race winner. Her sire flew 100 and 180 as a young bird, winning the 180 by several minutes. He then flew 180, 130, 180 as a yearling, placing 5th at 180. Dam flew 100 as a YB but was not flown as a yearling due to problems with our liberator. Full pedigree. Price: $50
