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.

 

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: $75

 

2.

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: $100

3.

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.

4. 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 half his real value. Price: $100.
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. SOLDMay hatch grizzle no. 9010, granddaughter of "El Jugador". Sire is a red grizzle out of "El Jugador" and a long-distance white Delbar. Dam is a blue bar out of an AU Elite Champion mated to the son of an AU Registered Champion, so you have outstanding raceers behind both parents. My best guess is that this is a hen, but sex is not guaranteed. Price: $75 - Sold (KC)
8. June hatch indigo pied no. 9040 bred from my flyers. 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. Price reduced: $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" $200
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. 2015 blue bar hen no. 74858, bred by Garfield Brothers of Utah. She is out of a daughter of their "Last Chance Hen" mated to a cock from their outstanding grizzle family of flyers. Price: $25
16. 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. June hatch dark check, primarily HVR. This appears to be a hen but cannot guarantee sex until "she" gets a little older. Full brother won a 250 mile race and a full sister was a diploma winner. If still here in the spring, this bird could end up in my breeding loft but for now I need to cut down on the numbers so I am offering her at a bargain price. Sire is out of a bird from Kripple Kreek Loft that is a double grandson of "Cinnamon", who after being purchased by Kirby Harrold of Kripple Kreek Loft, produced four winners from her first four eggs. Dam is out of an HVR hen from Lighthouse Loft and a son of "The Iceman", a 300-mile winner. Buy now because the price will go up as she matures. Price: $25
15. 2013 blue bar hen, no. WHC 113. Purchased from John Beeson of Perfection Lofts in Kansas via Pigeonauctions.com. Sire is "Man of War's Soldier", 2-time HOF winner and AU Elite Champion. This is a rather small hen that has raised me 14 youngsters over the past few years. We also have several grandchildren that have flown for us and that have been sent out to futurities. She does have a crooked keel, but that has no effect on her breeding ability. She has raised at least one race winner plus a “1st to loft” on a race in 2018. I purchased her as a young bird and would still have her on my breeding list except for the serious need to downsize. Nice little hen that comes with the original pedigree from Perfection Lofts. Priced to sell at a fraction of the price I paid for her. Price: $75
16. June hatch silver no. 9047, 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 9047 is a yellow check from the loft of Doug Harms and is down from an AU Registered Champion on both sides. 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
