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-or-ten-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 a significant 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 birds, and $150 for 4 birds to cover the cost of postage and a special USPS-approved shipping box. (4 or more birds means multiple boxes. Multiple boxes are often cheaper than using one of the larger boxes that are available. This is because the post office charges are based on size as well as weight. They charge significantly more for any box that is more than 1 cubic foot, regardless of weight.)

Payment can be made via money order or bank check (I do not accept personal checks). You can use Visa or Mastercard by clicking on the Paypal logo below if you prefer. Paypal "friends and family" is the preferred method of payment.

Bird Information
Click Thumbnail for larger image
1. 2016 homozygous indigo bar hen no. 5269. ALL her youngsters will be indigo. She was purchased from Bob Moschel via iPigeon. All four of her grandparents were bred by Gallo Loft. She is inbred "Venus", who was 2nd @ 314 miles vs. 1368 birds. Also in the pedigree are "Classic Boy" & "Miss Triple Crown" (The "Golden Couple"). "Venus" was Calia Janssen. Vaccinated for Adeno, Circo and PMV, Dec. 2023. Price reduced: $100
2. August 2023 hatch mealy cock no. 381. I missed banding him on time and had to put on an oversize band for record keeping purposes. As you can see from the picture, he has not yet finished the juvenile moult. He is out of a pair of my 2022 flyers. Both parents have flown a few races out to 120 miles, so you know there is racing blood here. Vaccinated for Adeno, Circo and PMV, Dec. 2023. Price: $50.
3.

If you like your hens big, bold and beautiful, here she is: 2021 reduced hen no. 493. August hatch that I missed banding right away so I had to use a larger band for record-keeping purposes. And it was late into 2022 until I finally learned it was a hen. Never bred from, she is a full sister to cock 2497 recently sold on this site.If not for the need to reduce numbers she would definitely be on the list of my 2024 breeders. Vaccinated for Adeno, Circo and PMV, Dec. 2023. Price: $100.

4. 2022 blue check hen no. 2296 from the flying team. She has flown 3 short races but found herself on the back burner due to my having too many actual and potential flyers these past two seasons. She did raise 2 youngsters in 2023 that were sent out for an auction race. I had thought about moving her to the breeding loft because of her performance pedigree, but I didn't have room for her there either. She is out of a pair of birds I purchased as part of the PNA Loft liquidation sale after the death of Paul Anderson of Southern California. This family is known for its success in OLRs as well as club races at distances out to 350 miles. She has been vaccinated for Adeno, Circo and PMV. Price: $100
5. SOLD September hatch "pencilled" blue bar no. 3944. I'm about 95% sure it is a cock but not certain. Sire is a gorgeous laced spread recessive opal I raised from an opal hen from David Stephenson (Kastle Pigeons) that is 3/4 Evans Gaby and 1/4 Black Widow, and another laced spread opal from my own family. Dam is a blue bar "Wolverine" hen from Jamie Tassert of No Mercy Loft in Florida. Both his parents are grandchildren of Wolverine. This pigeon carries the gene for recessive opal. Vaccinated for Adeno, Circo and PMV, Dec. 2023. Price: $75 - Sold (CM)
6. 2019 Black Hen no. 1289, used as a breeder since 2020 but available now only because I need room for a couple more nice hens I recently purchased. The mother of this bird carries recessive red, so there is a 50% chance 1289 will also carry that gene. Sire of 1289 is a Ken Christopher Vanloon. Her maternal grandmother is indigo 6464, whose parents are a brother to an AU Elite Champion and a granddaughter of another AU Elite Champion. 6464 was set aside for stock and has not disappointed in that regard. She is a full sister to 2 race winners, 1 of which is a multiple diploma winner; and two other diploma winners. Vaccinated for Adeno, Circo and PMV. Price reduced: $100
7. SOLDAugust 2023 grizzle no. 3915, bred from my flyers, looks like a hen but sex is not guaranteed at this time. Grandchild of a race winner on sire's side, and his/her dam was champion bird as a young bird and is down from two AU Registered Champions on that side. 3915 is primarily long-distance Delbar on his sire's side and Janssen/Engels on dam's side. Full pedigree. Price will increase once I can guarantee the sex, so act soon if you are interested. Vaccinated for Adeno, Circo and PMV, Dec. 2023. Price: $50 - Sold (CM
8. 2023 blue check grizzle cock no. 3747 from the flying team. This young cock flew just twice from 100 miles, missing our other YB races because of his moult position. He has a brother that has flown out to 200 miles that will be a prominent cog on my old bird team. 3747 is half old-line Wegge from the Mayan/McCauley family on the East Coast. Sire has flown 25 races out to 350 miles and is the father of a 200-mile race winner. Dam is a very dark spread indigo (almost solid black) bred for stock, and is down from race winners and AU Champions. Full pedigree. Vaccinated for Adeno, Circo and PMV, Dec. 2023. Price reduced: $75
9. 2023 Houben/VandenAbeele cock no. 3853. Sire is Straight Houben, full of the Clausing genes. Purchased as a young bird from Linden Lofts in Texas via Pigeonauctions.com. Sire of WCOF 6167-18, a race winner for Wendell Teboe in 2018, as well as several quality race birds and diploma winners for me over the course of his 10 years in my breeding loft. Dam is pure VandenAbeele purchased from Dennis DeVore with names like Lynch, Trunnell, Sylvan and others in the pedigree. Vaccinated for Adeno, Circo and PMV. Price: $75. ;
10. AU 23 LIMA 3866. Very nice recessive opal cock down from two flying families, one my own and the other the outstanding stud of Evans Gabys in the loft of David Stephenson (Kastle Loft). This is one I had set back for breeding but is now available because a couple young "hens" turned out to be cocks. Price: $150
   
****DRAGOONS***DRAGOONS****  
 

Folks have been asking me for Dragoons for the last three years and it has been difficult for me to accomodate them because my breeding has always been concentrated on my Racing Homers. So I made it a point to push my Dragoons a little harder the last two years so now I finally have a few pair to offer for sale. I don't keep very many so at this time most of what is available will be blacks and whites. I will be posting only a pair or two at a time because most of what I raised were later in the year and I am not sure of the sex of many.

Here is a 2023 white that is available. I think it is a hen but I cannot guarantee the sex at this time. (There will be more Dragoons over the next few months.) Price: $75 plus shipping - SOLD (CP)
