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 June 12th hatch indigo T-pattern Huysken-VanRiel no. 9022. Sex unknown but this is a fairly small pigeon and more than likely is a hen. Sire was purchased from Kirby Harrold at Kripple Kreek Loft via iPigeon and is a double grandson of "Cinnamon", who raised 4 winners from her first 4 eggs after KKL purchased her for $21,000. Dam is a recessive red splash bred by Ron Deisher that also has "Cinnamon" on both sides of her pedigree. Older siblings were put on this year's YB team. (Photo was taken under bad lighting, so her rich indigo color is not fully evident in the picture). Full pedigree. Price: $75 - Sale Pending (SM)

2.

 

July hatch blue check cock no. 8188, unflown due to his hatched too late to add to the YB team. AU Registered Champions on both sides of the pedigree however, as well as "The Y2K Cock", one of my better breeders who is out of a pair of GFL birds, on dam's side. There is also a 50% chance that this pigeon carries the gene for reduced, since his sire does. Price: $50

 

3.

2017 blue bar cock no. 7256, late hatch bred for stock; we raised just two young out of him and they were shipped off to a futurity. Dam is an AU Registered Champion, out of an AU Elite Champion, primarily Flor Engels. Sire is out of a Gaby Van den Abeele cock, mated to an AU Elite Champion, also primarily Engels.. Sire was a late hatch bred for stock, but is a half brother to two race winners plus several diploma winners. Full pedigree full of performance! Don't let this one get away. Price reduced: $50

4.

2014 blue bar cock no. 4735. He has alternated between being on the flying team and serving in the breeding loft. Some years he was in the flying loft when we did not fly old birds for various reasons. For that reason he has a limited race record. At this point he has flown four races out to 180 miles, including a top ten percent placing at 100 miles as a young bird. For those who may be interested, he carries the genes for barless and "cherry" (red phase recessive opal). His sire is a full brother to "Snake River", a "white lace" spread recessive opal that is a 200-mile winner. Dam is a blue barless down from imported "Goodjers" from Australia. Price: $75.

5. Late hatch 2017 blue bar cock no. 7263. This is a relatively small pigeon for a cock, but his pedigree is loaded with performance. His dam is an AU Registered Champion, and on the other side his paternal granddam is an AU Elite Champion, both from Perfection Loft in Kansas. He is primarily Flor Engels, but his paternal grandsire is a VandenAbele who sired two race winners and a top five diploma winner on three different hens. I really wanted to keep this bird as a breeder, but the numbers won't let me. Priced at about a third of his real value. Price reduced: $50.
6. Sale Pending   Extremely rare blue grizzle almond cock no, 8167. This pigeon is an August 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 reduced: $50 - Sale Pending (BB)
7. Sale Pending 2014 red grizzle cock no. 4812. This bird was raised by me and presented as a gift to a friend of mine who settled him but never raced him. I bought him back last year when my friend retired from the sport. This bird was on my breeding list for this year but I decided to let him go due to the excess of pairs in my breeding loft. That was a particularly difficult decision because he is a full brother to a race winner along with other siblings that were also diploma winners. His sire is out of my flyers and is primarily long-distance Delbar from CBS; his dam is a tiger grizzle from my friend cited above.Pedigree goes back to seven of his eight great grandparents.. Price reduced: $50 - Sale Pending (SM)

0. Dragoons and American Giant Homers occasionally for sale. When they are available they will be listed in this section. UNFORTUNATELY, THERE WILL BE NO DRAGOONS AVAILABLE PRIOR TO THE FALL OF 2019 AFTER I HAVE RAISED A NEW CROP OF YOUNGSTERS.
1. American Giant Homer: 2014 faded blue cock. Used as a breeder the last four years, he will be replaced by his son. He is still every bit as good as a breeder but I have extra cocks in this breed, and he is one that is available. Price: $35
2. American Giant Homers: 2016 blue bar hen, no. 2218. Large, powerful hen bred by AGHA Master Breeder Joe Braun. We have have bred from the past two seasons and are quite happy with her young. We would be keeping her another year but have extra Giant Homers, so we can afford to let her go at a very good price. Price: $50 ;
3. American Giant Homers: 2016 blue bar hen, no. 2482. Large, powerful hen that we raised ourselves and have bred from the past two seasons. Price: $35 This would make a great mate for the faded cock above.
4. American Giant Homers: Mated pair that are almost a perfect match. Cock in photo is on the left, hen on right. 2016 ash red bar hen no. 2481. This is a sister to the blue bar hen listed in lot 3 above. Large and powerful for a hen, extremely strong in head properties. Cock is a 2018, no. 2074, that has developed into a very nice specimen. Excellent pair at an excellant price. Price: $75 for the pair.
