Barless Pigeons


I am new to the sport of racing. I am going to be breeding and racing Barless blues and browns. I was just wondering why you dont see more people racing them?

Because they are relatively new colors to the racing birds. Browns aren't very popular because the sun bleaches the feathers and it is thought that they don't hold up well to hard training/racing. And of course barless is just now getting out there, thanks to Dennis Kuhn. Because barless is recessive to the other patterns, it takes a while to build up both racing quality and barless in appearance (rather than a bunch of birds who just carry the gene hidden).
I love barless birds, but have never had any I also have never had any brown homers, or even silver.

Well thanks for the reply. The breeders I am starting with are D Kuhns birds, I should say the one cock is the grandfather to 2 of the 8. He has won 12 diplomas. A friend of mine is moving and cant keep as many birds so I got them at a good price. I'm going to stick with his breeding program to stick with the barless genetics.

Blue Barless wins


Most recent win with Blue Barless was last weekend November 21st 2010 at Minnesota State Racing Pigeon Show held in Hutchinson, MN. #1666 blue barless cock won Grand Champion Eyesign. He won same award back in 06' at National Racing Pigeon Show held in Kansas. He is a direct son of foundation blue barless named "Dorian" who is possibly the best blue barless racer ever. Dorian was 2X 3rd at 600 miles, and 25th at 200 miles, before being set aside for stock.

Blue barless is the most rare color I race. The first time I saw one pictured, I was was taken back with their beauty. Like any other color of racers, they can race and be competitive, but just takes time. I have crossed them in with the best blue bars and checks I had, in order to get them to the point that they are today. Best of luck with your blue barless, and keep in touch. Racing non-standard colors competitively, just adds another element/challenge to racing pigeons and is something few individuals are willing to take on.

You do know this post is from 2010, If you need barless sprint birds you should call Dennis kuhn or send him a PM. It tales years to build a family. and he has already done that.

Oops now I see that you are from the UK so that may coast a bit to much.

To tell you the truth I didn't do well with my barless this year. I lost all but 2 that I raced. The 2 that I got back didn't come home till the end of the season. I think they got in someones loft and they just held on to them. Now we did have bad racing weather this year. It rained almost every weekend and had some snow on another. Our club didn't even bother to race the last 2 weeks. I'm not going to change anything this breeding season and just blame it one the fact of bad weather and being my first year racing.
