Auction of champion fanciers’ pigeons this weekend – catalog available here: de-jager-sale-3-december-2016-ready-to-print
We have completed our new loft and have weaned 30 babies into the new loft.
If all goes according to plan we want to give this batch of babies some road training in January when they are at least 100 days old. A good indication of when they are old enough for roadwork is when their eyes have changed from the ‘baby grey’ to the permanent colourful pigmentation.
We decided to no longer participate on our own. At this stage a partnership makes more sense.
A new partnership was formed between ourselves and Hennie Pienaar (Xalbador pigeons – check out his website at xalbadorpigeons.weebly.com )
Hennie is a champion pigeon fancier with some super genetics in his lofts.
We plan to race from our premises. 80 babies will be bred (40 by us and 40 by Hennie).
Racing in the Boksburg club (GPU) will be tough but we are very excited about 2017.
