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-or-ten-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 a significant 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 birds, and $150 for 4 birds to cover the cost of postage and a special USPS-approved shipping box. (4 or more birds means multiple boxes. Multiple boxes are often cheaper than using one of the larger boxes that are available. This is because the post office charges are based on size as well as weight. They charge significantly more for any box that is more than 1 cubic foot, regardless of weight.)

Payment can be made via money order or bank check (I do not accept personal checks). You can use Visa or Mastercard by clicking on the Paypal logo below if you prefer. However, Paypal is no longer the preferred method of payment.

Bird Information
Click Thumbnail for larger image
1. 2017 dilute almond hen no. 7296. This hen is a late hatch that was too young to fly as a YB. I was intrigued by the light color (she was almost white when she left the nest and has gotten darker each year) so I decided to keep her as a breeders. I no longer need her so here she is at a very attractive price. She was bred from a pair of my flyers. Her sire was another very light almond (sometimes called "sandy") and he flew 9 races out to 180 miles, several times being my first bird in the clock. He was primarily Delbar with a dash of HVR in his background. Her dam was a black and she was Vandenabeele and HVR. She flew three races as a YB, with a 1st and a 3rd on 2 of them, both from just under 100 miles. Price: $100
2.

June 2022 hatch blue bar cock no. 2440, carries the gene for brown and there is a 50% chance he also carries the gene for cherry (red phase recessive red). On sire's side he is down from 5900, a 200-mile winner and multiple diploma winner bred by Sal's Loft, as well a brown hen out of the brown family of Grayfox and Harms. On dam's side is a Marathon Ace pigeon. G-Dam is half Skylake Sion and half qualmond, the latter family producing the Ace pigeon cited here. Price: $75

3. SOLD "CASANOVA", a MAGNFICENT 2019 reduced blue bar cock no. 9141-19. This is a large pigeon, and a very productive one. He has offspring on this years flying team and also several in my reduced breeding program. He and his full brother are two of the greatest examples among my reduced birds, which are bred to fly as well as to look pretty. People who have seen him in the past marvel at how handsome he is and how nice his young are. He is primarily Janssen and HVR, with an AU Registered Champion in his mother's pedigree. Price: $250 firm. - SOLD
4. 2021 "pencilled" blue bar cock no.1090. Being a cock he carries the recessive gene for reduced. So half of all this daughters will be reduced and half his sons will carry that gene. Parents are a pair of yearlings that were held back specifically for breeding purposes. On sire's side we have "The Y2K Cock" a magnificent cock and one of my top breeders of a few years ago, who is down from several of the great Ganus names, and a brown hen from the loft of Doug Harms. Dam's side goes back to some of my earlier reduced foundation birds as well as a hen that is a g-great granddaughter of Doug's "The Cowboy" as well as my family of flying almonds. Full pedigree. Price: $50
5.

June 1, 2022 hatch "near white" cock no. 418. I am about 90% certain this is a cock but I cannot guarantee that.This pigeon will look much better once he goes through his first moult; you see him here in his juvenile plumage. This is a fairly large pigeon and besides that he just looks like a cock. He is wearing an oversized band because I missed banding him on time. Price: $50

 

6. 2018 Blue bar cock no. 8363. He is a fairly large pigeon but not gigantic. Very refined for a cock; I thought for a long time back in '18 that he was a young hen. I would have flown him but he was too late in the season to settle and train. He is a genetics breeder's dream, carrying the gene for cherry (red phase recessive opal) from his sire and the gene for brown from his dam. There is also a 50% chance that he carries the barless gene as well, coming from both his parents.. And he is bred as much for flying ability as for color; truly a "dual purpose" pigeon. Sire is down from my very good family of flying recessive opals that included "Snake River" who was a 200-mile winner. Dam is a brown bar that is out of one of my brown barless cocks and a brown hen that was a gift from a fellow club member. That brown hen was down from the "Gray Fox and Harms" flying team, known for some great flying browns. Price: $100.
7.

2013 Barless Blue cock no. 36976. For the last several years this has been my foundation cock in my barless family. And here are two rather interesting facts about him: (1) He was still filling all the eggs as of this year; and (2) He carries the gene for recessive opal, which is virtually unheard of in a loft of pigeons dedicated to rare colors flying races alongside as their "normal colored" loftmates. Because of his age I cannot guarantee fertility, but as just noted here he was still filling eggs this past breeding season. And because of his advanced age he is being offered at a fraction of what the price would be on a much younger bird. Full pedigree. Sold "As Is" Price: $50.

8. 2020 recessive red cock no. 278. Sire is a recessive red that carries dilute and is "Hollywood" family with about 1/8 Meuleman. 278 has raised a couple recessive yellow daughters that I am keeping for breeding. Dam is an Andalusian (see below) that carries recessive red. She is down from "Heisenberg, (my most consistent racer of the early 2000's on her sire's side. On her dam's side is an indigo/dominant opal hen from Doug Harms as well as 2 AU Elite Champions. This latter family has been very productive both in terms of numbers and racing success. Price: $100.
9. 2017 Andalusian blue hen no. 7267. This is the mother of the red cock listed above. Her genotype will allow for recessive red and yellow, black and dun, dominant opal and indigo, as well as normal blue bars and checks, depending on who her mate is. This has been a very productive family both in terms of volume and racing success. Her sire is an almond that is a grandson of "Heisenberg", my most consistent flyer since 2000 and her dam is indigo check 6464 who has raised several good flyers and is the sister of 2 race winners plus several other diploma winners. 6464 is out of a pair of birds consisting of a cock from Perfection Loft in Kansas that is a full brother to an AU Registered Champion and an indigo/dominant opal hen from Doug Harms that is a granddaughter to Doug's "The Cowboy", the only opal colored AU Elite Champion in the US. Price: $150.
