I'm not entirely sure which bands you're talking about, BUT SFL bands are expensive because they are custom bands. I think they cost more than normal bands AND the min order is 100. You can get them to say whatever you want.

If you're talking about money race bands, they are expensive so the club can earn money and the winners can get cash prizes.

Vanila Splice has already been suggested. Vanilla Spice, Vanilla Swirl. Anything yummy sounding, LOL. Guess it depends on what this son or daughter looks like

It's not that the bands are so expensive, it's the pigeon that is wearing them. If you find a pigeon with SFL USA on it's band, they can only come from one place in the world ! The Master pigeon guy himself, and he is very hard to do business with !! I saw a video once where he was taking his birds on a road trip and they were riding in one of those stretch limousines.

I saw that too. The chaffeur released the birds, while Mr & Mrs Smith sat in the limo drinking champagne. I was quite impressed, and what a lifestyle!

Hey Warren,

If your wife is interested and she can breed an all white, try sending them down to my race as well (2011 White Dove Release Classic). Im sure $2000 for 1st could be tempting......

I wonder.......LOL

Being as Warren's white bird did so good this year at the PT classic, I think I will send my whitest 1st round bird out there. Hopefully Buzz will raise me a little splash bird. Need something to blend in with the flock of show and wedding birds everyone is sending.

Tell Karen is she is not sending a bird this year that I am not sending my best. I will instead try and win the show. Have a better chance in the show this year without the Vanilla birds. I bet you do not have anymore pretty ones at the SFL loft.

Why do people think white birds are the prettiest? I know solid whites are beautiful, but I think they are overrated Splashes are probably prettier to me. Or grizzles! I will have a ton of grizzles. Maybe I could steal the show with them I have so many birds that I want to test out. Winning is fun but I really want to see if they can handle it out there. But we can only send two so I'll probably just send what I consider my best.
