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.

2. 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
3. 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 
4  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: $100
5.

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. 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
 
6. 2017 blue check hen no. 7082, right off the racing team. As the picture shows, this is a beautifully proportioned pigeon and she feels as good as she looks: tight feather, solid body, "one pin tail", and she handles fabulously. She flew 100 miles as a YB but came home injured and was held back until the next year. She then flew 180 miles as a yearling and 100 again as a 3-year-old. We had a limited season in 2019 so she did not fly that year. She is primarily Janssen with some HVR as well. Sire's side is primarily Janssen with a dash of HVR. Dam is almost exclusively Janssen and includes 784-06, an AU Registered Champion. 7082 has daughter on our OB team and 3 grandchildren on our current YB team. Price: $100
7. Hatched May 1st, this almond cock (sex not guaranteed) no.258 is from one of my top breeding pairs. Both parents are unflown and were bred for stock, the dam being a full sister to a race winner and two other diploma winners, while her parents are a brother to an AU Elite Champion and a granddaughter of another AU Elite Champion ("The Cowboy", the only dominant opal Elite Champion in the country as fo that date). Sire carries recessive red and is a grandson of "Heisenberg" who was one of my best flyers of the early 2000's. Retired from racing after a very successful career, I left him in the flying loft with his mate and he became a hawk victim a year later. Sire is almond and is down from my very good flying family of almonds. Price: $50 through August. Get him now because prices on all my young birds will go up as they mature and sex can be guaranteed.  
8. Large blue bar cock (sex not 100% guaranteed) no. 296, hatched May 15. Sire is son of "Heisenberg" (see note above), a Janssen/HVR cross who was first to loft in 10 of his 24 races. Dam is an indigo bar purchased from Bob Moschel, that is a granddaughtr of Gallo's famous "Venus" hen. Dam is sister of several diploma winners, and also has some Creator blood a few generations back. Price: $35.
9. May hatch "sandy" no. 280, appears to be a hen but sex is not guaranteed. She was bred from my flying team. Her sire is a "near white" with a few red flecks (most likely a grizzled almond) and her dam looks just like her. Pedigree lists both as almonds. Dam's mother is the BC hen listed above in lot 6. Sire flew 10 races out to 180 miles and dam flew 4 races out to 180 miles. Price: $35
10. 2020 late hatches, can be trained now or saved for breeding. We will have a few select late hatches available, priced according to pedigree and color (rare colors being more expensive). Contact us with your needs and we will try to accomodate you. Prices will vary
