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 last few years have seen significant increases in postal rates. Therefore, if birds are to be shipped to you (shipping to destinations in the USA only), the shipping charge will be as follows: $60 for one bird, $70 for two birds, $90 for 3 or 4 birds, $115 for 5 or 6 birds, and $125 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 jump in shipping costs as the number of birds increases.) More than 8 birds will require a second box, and shipping on American Giant Homers (when available) will incur a 50% 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. 2013 blue bar Houben hen no. 3066. She flew four races out to 180 miles as a young bird, winning diplomas at 100(5th) and 120(3rd). In 2015 I moved her to the breeding loft after she was injured training. She currently has a son on my YB team and also has an offspring entered in the prestigious GNEO futurity in Ohio. This was a hard decision, but I absolutely must cut back on my numbers, so I reluctantly am offering her for sale here. This is a very nice, medium-sized pigeon that handles well and you will love her once you have her. Price: $150
2. 2016 blue grizzle Wegge cock. Unflown himself, but his full brother flew out to 300 miles. MacCauley/Mayan Wegge out of a pair of Dixie-Buckeye birds purchased in a charity auction online. He looks a bit rough right now due to the fact that he was broken up recently and went right into a moult. Children are on my current flying team, as well as in futurity races. Limited pedigree. Price: $100
3. May hatch red check Houben, no. 7216. Small, tight-feathered little pegeon that appears to be a hen, although sex is not guaranteed. Sire was bred by Dennis Doyle of Lynden Loft in Texas and is inbred on Clausing 168-06. Dam was bred by Rick Nanez and is the mother of a diploma winner. (See lot no. 1 above). Dam is also down from double grandparents, an imported cock and a hen that is a daughter of Clausing's famous "410". Full pedigree. Price: $75
4.

June 1st hatch grizzle houben, no. 7290. Solidly built pigeon of medium size. Appears to be a hen, but no guarantee as to the sex. This is out of the Houben hen listed as lot no. 1 above. Dam flew out to 180 miles as a YB, with two top-five diplomas. Sire was purchased from Sal Hernandez of California and is out of a pair of birds directly from David Clausing. Pedigree back to seven of the eight great grandparents. Price: $50

5. May hatch "cherry" (red phase recessive opal) no. 7289, appears to be a cock but sex is not guaranteed. Sire is "1441", a full brother to "Snake River", a 200-mile winner who also has another brother with a second-place diploma. Dam is a recessive opal barless, who is unflown but a full sister to diploma winners. Dam also goes back to barless pair imported from Australia as well as the family of "The Iceman", a barless ash red 300-mile winner. Full pedigree. Price: $75
6. May hatch blue bar/wf cock no. 7167 that carries both reduced and recessive white. Sire is a powerful white cock obtained when someone was getting out of pigeons and needed a place for them. He has no pedigree but looks to be a pretty good bird, handles very well and is an excellent parent, so I let him mate with one of my good reduced hens. Dam is from a family of reduced homers that have been bred for flying. She is down from "Heisenberg" and is heavy in Janssen blood. Pedigree on dam's side only. Price: $35
7. June hatch blue bar no. 7260, appears to be a hen but cannot guarantee sex. Sire was on our flying team as a young bird and flew 100, 100, and 120 miles, placing in top 10% at 120 miles. Grandsire on this side is heavy in the genes of Blue Miracle and Granger's Diamond; grandmother is down from "Heisenberg". Dam of 7260 is unflown but out of an AU Registered Champion hen when mated to "The Y2K cock", one of my best breeding cocks. Full pedigree. Price: $50
8. 2015 blue grizzle hen no. 5191, full sister to the number 2 cock above. Unflown herself, but her younger brother flew out to 300 miles. MacCauley/Mayan Wegge out of a pair of Dixie-Buckeye birds purchased in a charity auction online. She currently has two youngsters entered in the GNEO futurity here in Ohio. Limited pedigree. Price: $100
9. June hatch blue bar no. 7217. Appears to be a cock, but no guarantee. Grandparents include a son of "Heisenberg" as well as two AU Elite Champions from John Beeson's Perfection Loft in Kansas. Sire is a son of "Man-o-War's Sodier", who is an AU Elite Champion and Hall of Fame winner in two categories. Dam is out of a son of Heisenberg and an AU Elite Champion I obtained directly from Perfection Loft. Full pedigree. Price: $75
10. June hatch true silver (dilute blue) hen no. 7285, inbred on "The Iceman", a barless ash red winner at 300 miles. Parents are unflown but are both down from performance families. Sire is down from 1408, a son of The Iceman who flew out to 255 miles and a granddaughter of "Man-O-War's Soldier" (see above). Dam is out of a barless blue hen with a flying record and a yellow bar cock 1408, a son of The Iceman. Full pedigree. Both parents carry the gene for barless, so there is a 67% chance she also carries it. Full pedigree. Sex is guaranteed. Price: $75
11. June hatch blue bar no. 7401. Appears to be a cock. I cannot guarantee sex at this time but if indeed a cock he carries the gene for reduced. Dam is a granddaughter of Heisenberg and is at least half Janssen. Sire is a grandson of HOF cock and AU Elite Champion "Man-O-War's Soldier." Full pedigree. Price: $50
12. July hatch silver cock 7402. Sire is Paul Anderson's "The Real Deal", son of "Omar", an outstanding racer bred by John Timmerman and given to Paul; and a hen that Paul bred out of a pair of CBS birds down from The Cowboy. Paul had no pedigree for Omar, so this bird's pedigree includes just six of the eight great-grandparents. Dam is "5012", a yellow bar that is out of a son of The Iceman mated to a race winner from Sal's Loft in Utah. Siblings are on my current YB team and have been sent to futurities. Although his parents were not flown, the rest of the pedigree is full of performance. Sex is guaranteed. Price: $50
13. May hatch blue bar hen no. 7219. This is a full sister to lot no. 12 above. See above for details. Sex is guaranteed. Price: $50
14. May hatch blue grizzle Wegge cock no. 7209. An older sister recently won 1st @ 100 miles vs 14 lofts and 200+ birds. This pigeon is also a full brother to lots 2 and 8 above. This is a medium-size, strong young cock that handles very well. He would have been on the YB team but was set aside because the YB loft was already full. See the two lots above for more information on this family of birds. Full pedigree. Price: $75
15.

2015 "Cherry" (red phase recessive opal) cock. Since his sire carries barless there is a 50% chance this pigeon carries barless, but we have not yet produced any from him. But we have never had him mated to a barless hen, either. His sire is out of a cherry cock and a blue barless hen, both of which placed first in their classes at the 2011 Nation Young Bird Show. This pigeon goes back to an imported pair of barless from Australia on both sides. Dam also goes back to my foundation family of recessive opals which produced "Snake River", a spread opal 200-mile winner. Full pedigree. Price: $100

16. July hatch blue bar no. 7422, appears to be a cock but sex is not guaranteed. Sire is primarily Flor Engels purchased from Perfection Loft in Kansas. Sire is out of "Man-o-War's Soldier", an AU Elite Champion and Long-Distance AND All-Distance Hall of Fame winner, with 6 first-place wins plus numerous other very high placings. Dam is out of a son of "Heisenberg", my top flying cock over the last 15 years, mated to another AU Elite Champion. Here's a chance at what could actually be a foundation bird for your loft at a very reasonable price. Full pedigree. Price: $75
17. Early July hatch "white grizzle" no. 7199, bred from my flying team. Appears to be a cock but sex is not guaranteed. Sire is a white and is half long-distance Delbar on one side and is out of a white hen that flew 223 miles on the other side. 7199's dam, 4815, is a blue bar diploma winner out of my "Y2K" cock, a bird that goes back to "Golden Mattens", "Sure Bet", "Rocket" (when mated to the nestmate of "Creator"). Her mother is another AU Registered Champion from Perfection Loft. 4815 will move to the breeding loft in 2018. Full pedigree on dam's side; limited pedigree on sire's side. Price: $75
