FOR SALE

Australian long-distance racing pigeons.

This year, the lofts of the Australian Pigeon Company offers youngsters from 22 pairs for sale. All youngsters are children or grandchildren of 600, 700 or 800-mile Open winners. Some of the youngsters are grandchildren of three different 700-mile Open winners. Needless to say, they are all lovely pigeons, beautiful in the hand but most importantly have won after long hours on the wing, when a pigeon's motivation, stamina and constitution are ultimately tested.

Only six youngsters will be available from each pair. All youngsters are prices at $400 each.
