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.

Bird Information
Click Thumbnail for larger image
1. July hatch blue check no. 9081. This is a fairly large pigeon that I would guess is a cock, but sex is not guaranteed. Sire is an ash red that appears to also be "cherry", which is red phase recessive opal. Sire carries dilute, so if this is a cock, he will also carry that gene. Dam is a daughter of "Snake River", a 200-mile winner with an additional diploma (2nd) at 130 miles. "Snake River" was mated to "1088" who was bred by Ron Pairan from his South Africa family. Dam also carries the gene for recessive opal, so there is a high probability that 9081 will also carry it. Full pedigree. Price: $25.
2.

Extremely light red grizzle no. 9056. This pigeon is primarily long-distance White Delbar, with 3 of the 4 grandparents down from imported Delbars from The Netherlands lofts of Michael Buyk and C. Korstanje. Both these families made their mark in Europe as outstanding long-distance flyers, primarily at 500-600 miles. Dam is a full sister of a race winner and a second diploma winner as well. Hatched in late July, this appears to be a hen but sex is not guaranteed. Full pedigree. Price: $50.

3. June hatch red grizzle no. 9058, appears to be a cock but sex is not guaranteed. Pure Delbar on sire's side, Delbar, Janssen and Houben on dam's side. Dam is a full sister to a race winner and another diploma winner. Sire is a grandson of my best breeding white cock, who produced a multiple diploma winner as well as a race winner. Price: $50
4. July hatch blue check no. 9089. This appears to be a hen, but sex is not guaranteed. Sire is primarily Janssen and carries the gene for reduced, so on the outside chance that this is a cock, it might also carry reduced. Sire is unflown but is out of a bird that flew out to 180 miles as a YB prior to being stocked. Dam is also unflown but her mother flew 3 races of 100, 100 and 130 as a YB, also prior to moving to the stock loft. Her sire is directly from Ron Pairan in Ohio and is a son of an AU Registered Champion. Price: $25.
5. Extremely rare blue grizzle almond cock no, 8152. This pigeon is an 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 reduced: $75
6. "Hermano del Jugador". June hatch ash red bar cock no. 9023, a full brother to "El Jugador" who flew just 3 races as a yearling and placed 1st, 2nd, and 3rd in those three races. His sire is "The Real Deal" bred by Paul Anderson of PNA loft in California. "The Real Deal" is a son of Omar and Quiet Blue. Omar was bred by Paul Timmerman and given to Paul Anderson as a youngster. Paul flew Omar extensively, but retired him after just 5 OB races in which he placed in the top 10 several times against birdage over 1000. Quiet blue is down from two outstanding CBS cocks, "990" and "The Cowboy." 9023's dam is a yellow bar whose sire is also yellow bar and who flew 6 races out to 250 miles, and whose grandfather is "The Iceman", a 300-mile winner and whose granddam was 1st club and 2nd concourse vs. 500+ birds. Price: $100.
7. June hatch blue check pied no. 9027. My bests guess is this is a cock but sex is not guaranteed. Sire is a full brother to the bird listed below in lot no. 13, and his background can be found up there. 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: $25
8. June hatch indigo pied no. 9040 bred from my flyers, appears to be a hen but sex is not guaranteed. I had a bird that was similarly marked when I was a kid, and we referred to her as "The Half Saddle" since at that time we were into Saddle Homers. This bird's sire is a white that is aprroximately 3/4 Delbar with some Janssen and Ganus Grizzle on his sire's side. Dam is an indigo bar that is a granddaughter of "Heisenberg", my foundation Janssen cock who was also my top flyer in the early 2000's. Her sire is a son of Heisenberg and her dam is an indigo from Bob Moschel with a fair amount of Gallo blood in her background. Full pedigree. Price: $25
9. Magnificent 2017 yellow bar cock no. 7144. This pigeon was bred for stock out of performance pigeons and as a bonus he carries the gene for barless. (My barless fly for me; they are not bred just for color.) Sire is out of 9011-09, a "chrome" (yellow barless) cock that flew 130 miles twice as a young bird, including placing 7th vs 159 birds and 7 lofts on a major smash, where he was one of just 21 birds back when the race was closed three days later. 9011's sire is a 200-mile winner who flew 11 races out to 250 miles. Dam of 7144 is approximately 3/4 Blue Miracle Janssen and is a granddaughter of "The Iceman", a 300-mile winner. Price reduced: $150
10. 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 year. I have two siblings on my current YB 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 out of an AU Marathon Ace pigeon when mated to a runner-up AU Marathon Ace. Price: $50
11. Magnificent big blue check cock no.RGL 63-12, bred by Zach Garfield of Rocking G Lofts. I purchased him as an unbred yearling in early 2013 and he did not disappoint me, breeding me a race winner in his 2nd year of breeding. His sire, 5136, was 21st vs 280 in the 2006 Highlander One Loft Race and is a son of Garfield's "Hit Pair", responsible for over $50,000 in prize money in one-loft races over the years. 5136's brother won that race and took home $13000. RGL63's dam, 29744, was sent to the Spring Break where she flew very well and finished the series, and is out of a hen bred by Victor Valenzuela. RGL63 comes with the original pedigree from Zach Garfield. Price: $100
12. 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
13. Strong, robust 2018 silver cock no. 8594 that carries barless, dilute and cherry. 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. I only raised a few young from this cock, one of which was a blue barless. Price: $50
14. July hatch blue bar cock no. 9033, carries the gene for reduced. Sire is reduced and dam is a black. Dam carries recessive opal, so this bird might carry opal as well. Dam is a granddaughter of "Snake River", a 200-mile winner, on one side and AU 06 FM 706, an AU Registered Champion. on the other side. Sire is a grandson of "6028", who flew in the 2016 YB series prior to moving to stock loft. 6028 is down several generations from "Blue Miracle" and several other flyers. This is the nestmate of lot no. 18 below. Full pedigree. Price: $50
15. June hatch blue check hen no. 9021. Sex is not guaranteed, but she looks like a hen and handles like a hen. Sire flew 3 races of 100 (twice) and 120 as a young bird, placing in the top 10% on one of the 100's prior to moving to the breeding loft as a yearling. Sire is Blue Miracle Janssen on one side and on the other side is heavy in the genes of "Heisenberg", a large Janssen cock who was my best flyer since 2004 until his untimely death at the talons of a Cooper's Hawk a few years ago. Dam also carries some Heisenberg blood, but also is down from two AU Champions on her mother's side. Fully pedigreed. Price: $25
16. July hatch grizzle no. 9070, appears to be a cock but far too young to tell for sure. Sire is pure long-distance Wegge and has flown 9 races out to 300 miles. Dam flew 100 miles as a young bird and came back injured, so she was held back from additional flying. Her father was flown out to 180 miles and was then moved to the breeding loft as a yearling. Full pedigree. Price: $50
17. June hatch mealy no. 9046, appears to be a cock but sex is not guaranteed. If a cock, he will carry the gene for dilute and at least half his daughters will be yellow bars and checks. Sire is Huysken-VanRiel, a full brother to a race winner and multiple diploma winner. Sire is out of "4965", one of my best breeding cocks who is down from "Cinnamon", an outstanding breeder whose first three eggs produced race winners. 4965 was mated to 1630, a yellow bar that was settled here and then set aside for breeding. 1630 then produced a race winner in 2017 and had earlier produced a daughter that flew very well in the 2013 GNEO futurity. Dam of 9046 is a yellow check from the loft of Doug Harms and is down from an AU Registered Champion on both sides. Price: $50
18.   July hatch blue bar cock no. 9032, carries the gene for reduced. Sire is reduced and dam is a black. Dam carries recessive opal, so this bird might carry opal as well. Dam is a granddaughter of "Snake River", a 200-mile winner, on one side and AU 06 FM 706, an AU Registered Champion. on the other side. Sire is a grandson of "6028", who flew in the 2016 YB series prior to moving to stock loft. 6028 is down several generations from "Blue Miracle" and several other flyers. This is the nestmate of lot no. 14 above. Full pedigree. Price: $50
19. June hatch white splash no. 9041. Looks like a hen but is far too young to guarantee sex. Sire flew 130 and 140 miles; dam flew 130 miles. Sire is approximately 3/4 long-distance Delbar but also goes back to some of the Ganus grizzles via Ken Weyer. Dam is a granddaughter of "Heisenberg", an outstanding flyer over several years. Dam's mother is "Moschel 252" from Bob Moschel and is a granddaughter of Gallo's outstanding hen "Venus". "252" is 3/4 Gallo and 1/4 Creator line. This pigeon is the nestmate of lot no. 8 above. Price: $25
