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 cock no. 9081. 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 may 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: $50.
2. July hatch grizzle cock no. 9070, Sire is pure long-distance Wegge and has flown 11 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
3. 2019 true silver (dilute blue) barless hen no. 9599. Sex is guaranteed. This is a medium-size pigeon that handles extremely well and also carries the gene for recessive opal. Her father is a strong, powerful blue bar whose sire is down from "The Iceman" (300-mile winner) on one side and an AU Elite Champion and 2 time Hall of Fame winner "Man O War's Soldier"on the other side. Her mother is a recessive opal barless that goes back to my old family of racing opals on one side and an imported Australian "Goodjer" cock on the other side. Full pedigree. Her mother (below) was sold just a few days prior to posting her. Price: $100 firm
4. SOLD2017 recessive opal barless hen no.7278, used in the breeding loft the last two years. Now that I have enough barless opals in my flock she is available at a very reasonable price. She is lighter than most of my opal barless, which leads me to believe that she might even be a barless cherry. Of course with no bars or checks to see we cannot be certain. She has been bred from a family of blue,silver, and ash red barless, as well as a very good family of recessive opals, even going back to include a pair of 2009 imports from Australia plus "The Iceman", an ash red barless 300-mile winner from several years ago. Price: $100 - Sold (PH)
5. Extremely rare blue grizzle almond cock no, 8152. This pigeon is a 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: $50
6. Strong, robust 2018 silver cock no. 8594 that carries dilute and cherry, and maybe barless as well, since his dam carried it. 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. Price: $50
7. June hatch blue check pied hen no. 9027. Sire is a full brother to the bird listed above in lot no. 6, 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: $50
8.

Here's another very nice grizzle no. 9126. This is a September hatch and appears to be another cock. Sire is pure long-distance Wegge and has flown 11 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. Full pedigree. Price: $50

9. SOLDJune hatch red check HVR cock no. 9029. Older brother is a 250-mile race winner and is down from the "Cinnamon" line. Paternal grandsire is a double grandson of "Cinnamon", probably one of the best breeding HVR hens ever. Paternal grandmother is a granddaughter of "The Iceman", a 300-mile winner. Mother is a granddaughter of "The Iceman" when mated to a Bill Vernay (Greenshield Loft) HVR. Price: $50 - Sold (ST)
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 past year. I have two siblings on my current 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 the son of an AU Marathon Ace pigeon when mated to a runner-up AU Marathon Ace. Price: $50
11. SOLD 2015 almond hen AU 15 WCOF 5027. She was a late hatch and therefore unflown, but several of her siblings have flown as well as several of her ancestors on her sire's side; not sure of her dam's side because I don't have the flying records on that side. A son is on my current old bird team. "4012" on pedigree is "Heisenberg" my best flyer this century. See pedigree here for more information. She has been in the breeding loft the past four years and now I need to reduce numbers so I am going to let her go to make room for others. Price: $100 - Sold (ST)
12. SOLDHere 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 - Sold (KW)
13. 2016 Meuleman cock no. 16092 no. RPUSA 16092, bred by Michael Sohrdahl, RacingPigeonUSA. Fully pedigreed and goes back to several birds from The Netherlands and Belgium via CBS and Oak Haven Farms. I obtained this bird and his mate in a trade about a year ago but have not bred from them due to space limitations. I wanted to use them in 2020 but have decided to let them go. (His mate is a blue bar pied that carries the gene for recessive red. If you are interested in purchasing them as a pair, please contact me. The price quoted here is for the cock only.) Price: $150 (Or combine with the hen in lot no. 16 below and buy the pair for $250.)
14. May hatch indigo no. 9018. Appears to be a cock. Sire is a recessive red "Hollywood" cock, out of "Red Baron" and "Holly", both bred by Ron Deisher. Dam is an andalusian who carries the gene for recessive red and has at least two AU Registered Champions in her pedigree. She is also down from my Heisenberg Janssen family on her sire's side. This is going to be a large bird and he already fills up both hands, but at the same time handles extremely well. Indigo is known to enhance recessive red. Full pedigree.Price: $50
15. May hatch indigo no. 9019. I think it is a hen but cannot guarantee sex at this time. Sire is a recessive red "Hollywood" cock, out of "Red Baron" and "Holly", both bred by Ron Deisher. Dam is an andalusian who carries the gene for recessive red and has at least two AU Registered Champions in her pedigree. She is also down from my Heisenberg Janssen family on her sire's side. This is going to be a large bird and he already fills up both hands, but at the same time handles extremely well. Indigo is know to enhance recessive red, so if you like recessive red here is a great opportunity to add more flying genes and enhance the color as well. Priced at about half her true value. Full pedigree. Price: $50
16. 2016 Meuleman hen no. RPUSA 16150, bred by Michael Sohrdahl, RacingPigeonUSA. Fully pedigreed and goes back to several birds from the Hackemer Meulemans, along with other great names as well as British and Dutch imports. Sire is a brother of a 300-mile winner. Dam is down from a 300-mile winner. This is the mate of the cock listed in lot 13 above. Price: $150 (Combine with the cock above and you can purchase the mated pair for $250.)
17. 2014 blue bar cock no. 4922. Performance pedigree. Although parents did not fly, all four grandparents were flown with maternal grandsire being an AU Elite Champion. Paternal grandsire flew 6 races out to 250 miles. Blue Miracle Janssen, Ken Christopher Vanloon, and my own “Iceman”, a 300-mile winner, on sire’s side; John Beeson’s Perfection Loft on dam’s side. Dam is also the mother of a race winner. This pigeon carries the gene for barless. Click here to see pedigree. Price: $50
18. July hatch "white grizzle" no. 9073. Sex not guaranteed but it looks like a hen. Sire is half Wegge and a race winner and multiple diploma winner, winning 1st at 180 miles by several minutes as a YB, then placing 5th @ 180 as a yearling. He (the sire) has flown a total of 5 races including 100, 130, and 3 times 180. Dam is a white Delbar that flew 100 as a YB but was unflown as a yearling due to a limited race season. Price: $50
19. June hatch black pied hen no. 9035. Sex is guaranteed. This is a fairly large pigeon, as were her father and grandfather. She is a g-granddaughter of "Black Rain". The daughter of Black Rain was mated to a very large black cock who placed 1st at 250 miles, 2nd at 190 miles and 3rd at 180 in the 2012 OB season. (I do not have his records for other seasons, since his owner did not fly after 2012.) 9035's mother is an almond (Yes, some rare colors fly just fine.) who flew 100 and 130 as a young bird in 2017 but was then stocked as a yearling. She is still in my breeding loft and is half HVR just like the cock she was mated to at the time. So 9035 would be at least half HVR but is probably more than that since my almond family has a lot of HVR in it. The rest of her background is my Heisenberg Janssens. Price: $50
20. August hatch white grizzle cock no. 9123. Sire is a race winner. He is a Wegge cross that has flown the following: 100 and 180 as a YB, followed by 130, 180 and 180 again as a yearling and 140 and 170 as a 2-year-old. He was first on 180 as a YB and then placed 5th at 180 as a yearling. Dam is a pure white Delbar (long distance family) who flew 100 as a YB but was not flown this year due to an injury. Price: $25
21.

SOLDAugust hatch blue bar pencil/WF no. 9124, nestmate to the above, appears to be a cock. Sire is a race winner. He is a Wegge cross that has flown the following: 100 and 180 as a YB, followed by 130, 180 and 180 again as a yearling and 140 and 170 as a 2-year-old. He was first on 180 as a YB and then placed 5th at 180 as a yearling. Dam is a pure white Delbar (long distance family) who flew 100 as a YB but was not flown this year due to an injury. Price: $25 - Sold (ST)

22. AU 2019 LIMA 9093, July hatch. Large red check cock from my "Heisenberg" Janssen 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 9093's pedigree.) Sire is a blue slate out of 7142-07, one of the last few sons of Heisenberg and also one of my best breeding cocks. Dam is a granddaughter of Heisenberg. Price: $75
23.   SOLDJune hatch silver cock no. 9044. Sire is a 250-mile race winner and is the brother of the bird in lot no. 9 above. Dam is out of a hen from Grayfox and Harms loft and is a full sister of 3 diploma winners, one of which was a race winner. Full pedigree. Price: $50. - Sold (KB)
24. Sale Pending May hatch 2019 barless blue hen no. 9590. Sex is guaranteed. Bred from a flying family. Dam flew 100, 100, and 130 prior to being stocked. 2 older siblings trained out to 93 miles but our club did not fly ybs this year; sire is HVR and VanHee. Race winners in pedigree, including "The Iceman" a barless ash red 300-mile winner who is behind her dam. Dam is blend of Creator, Engels and my "Iceman" family. Price: $100 - Sale Pending (CP)
25. July hatch "White Lace" (spread recessive opal) cock no. 9062. (Sex not guaranteed at this time but almost all that are this light are cocks.) Sire (also white laced) flew 100, 100, and 125 as a young bird prior to being stocked. Paternal grandsire is out of a full brother to "Snake River", a similar white lace cock that was a 200-mile winner and a multiple diploma winner. Maternal grandsire is a son of "Snake River" and maternal granddam is a daughter of an AU Registered Champion. I sell very few of these, so get yours now rather than asking for one later when all my surplus birds are gone. Price: $150 firm
26. Very nice September hatch blue check hen no. 9128. Medium size, feels right in your hands and based on her behavior in the loft she appears to be ready to mate. Sire flew 100, 150 and 180 mile races prior to being moved to the breeding loft as a yearling. Dam is a Janssen/Aarden cross and is the granddaughter of an AU Registered Champion. Price: $25
27. June hatch 2019 white cock no. 9059. Sire is Janssen/Delbar and he is a full brother to a race winner and another diploma winner. Dam is out of a daughter of "The Sub-Zero Hen", a daughter of CBS's import cock "Subzero", winner of 3 X 1st vs 990, 733, 108 birds. Also with at least 6 other prizes vs up to 1288 birds. Dam's sire "482" is a cock bred by Ken Weyer and is down from "White Cloud", "Snow White", "Ikon" and "White Horse", all famous names in the Ganus family of Grizzles and whte grizzles on sire's side. 482's dam is down from "Silver Boy", "Futurity Winner" and "Snowflake". Price: $200
28. June hatch 2019 blue check Van Loon hen no. 9025, bred from a pair of birds I purchased from Ken Christopher. Both parents are grandchildren of "Campbell" and the sire is a double grandson. So you have here an inbred Campbell pigeon that is ripe for an outcross. This year I bred out of two siblings of 9025 and raised and trained 4 this year on my YB team. Price: $50
