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. Ash red and white splash hen no. 9107, genetically a red grizzle, 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: $50
2. July hatch white grizzle hen 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: $50
3. Very nice August 2018 hatch blue check cock no. 9098 that carries the gene for barless. He might also carry the gene for recessive opal because his mother is a barless blue that does carry the opal gene. He looks great and feels great in the hand. Well proportioned, alert, active and ready to mate. Bargain priced at less than half his true value. Price: $50
4. July 2019 hatch blue bar cock no 9033. There is a 50% chance that he carries reduced. Mate him to any hen and if he does then half his daughters will be reduced. Again, if he carries the gene, mate him to a reduced hen and half of all his young will be reduced in both sexes. Not sure of sire but I think it 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
5. AU 19 LIMA 9121. I'm going to call this hen a "Sandy" for lack of a better name, since the almond gene is involved but is not expressing itself very well. . 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 years.) Full pedigree Price: $50 
6  8532 AU 2018 WCOF slate (smokey blue check) cock, Janssen based, from my "Heisenberg" family. ("Heisenberg" was my best flyer this century, winning 8 diplomas including 2 firsts in 25 races. In over half those races he was my first bird home. He is on both sides of this bird's pedigree.) 8532 is a son and a grandson of "7142", one of the last few sons of Heisenberg and one of my best breeding cocks over the last ten years. Paternal grandmother goes back to "Assured Gold" and "Granger's Diamond", while maternal grandmother is out of "The Red Rock Cock" and "Miss Plymouth Peak", an outstanding pair of breeders and flyers for Steve Johnson's Tiger Loft. Price: $75.
7.

July hatch blue check cock no. 9075. Son of a race winner! Not only is his sire a race winner, but as a yearling the sire 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: $75
