I have really only ever been interested in the long distance racing pigeon. One of my first places I purchased pigeons from was in Yorkshire. I read about the pigeons in Squills. The person I went to buy them from I had read up on, and he was called Ernest Kinsey and he was based in Doncaster. I went up to see him with my family and he made us most welcome. He showed me around his race loft, a loft that was not a typical traditional race loft, as it was built on the front of a type of cave dwelling, and the birds looked in great condition. I came away with a pair of good pigeons which Ernie had recommended ( Warrington- Delbars ). I never looked back, these pigeons scored instantly at all distances.I still have all the winning cards to date.Over the years I went from strength to strength in Long distance racing.
I have won top positions with my pigeons in the long distance races in both Club, Fed, and National races. I have had good results in shows also, which I went to for the usual chat, beer, and sales that followed. I have had a lot of advice from experienced Long Distance pigeon racing specialist’s both at home and abroad, as far away as Australia. At present I am fortunate enough to have family who live in Belgium. Through them I have met top Racing Pigeon fanciers from both the short distance and the Long Distance extremes of the sport in Belgium and Holland. I have purchased the Long Distance Racing pigeons I now advertise on this site directly from Belgium and Holland. Most of my best results racing were from direct purchases in Belgium and Holland.
At the moment I am not racing pigeons myself. I want to concentrate on breeding some top quality young pigeons to sell at a decent price to the fancy. And I hope that someone, somewhere in the sport will purchase these youngsters from me and win with them. My pleasure will be in the breeding process for now, Good top quality feeding, clean lofts, and all the preventative measures will be adhered to. Quality not quantity, limited breeding, youngsters direct of the imported pigeons, your own rings if required, just a good, honest, quality breeding stud. Browse the site and see the breeding for yourself, a personal service is assured for genuine inquiries.
