Sterile cocks now bidding at Ipigeon...


starting bid @ $300 a piece.......

581000
Item #: 82854


Description: 581000 Think Out Side The Box!! Sterile cocks!!

Offered in this auction is 13 cocks that I had Ferde Van Der Sanden the Belgian Vet who does artificial insemination, sterilize for me. They are 4 and 5 years old. What you do is mate your best hens to your stud cock so she gets used to him then you mate her to a sterilized cock that will help her raise the youngsters. You want to make sure the sterilized cock and there hens are in a loft by their selves or individual breeding pens. If you have a fertile cock in the loft all you will know is who the mother is!! Mate up the pair with the sterile cock and on the 4th night take away the sterile cock and the evening of the 5th day give her the stud cock. One time is sufficient. As soon as he has done his job the sterile cock can be put back with her and he will continue to drive her to the nest. If you have more than one sterile cock mate the pairs one day and one the next so the stud gives her a full shot of spem, Breed the stud cock only one time a day. He should be kept by himself to guarantee the full load!! In other words don't have him with a hen EVER, only when he is doing his job!! It costs $125.00 for sterilization and $175.00 to Import them let alone the trip there to take the cocks and a trip to get them back. This is THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX!! You can get as many young as you want out of the best cocks!!

If you have any questions call me at 702-375-8690 Good Luck, Ed

I don't know about this one. There might be more work involved. Why not just carefully work the bull system instead?

I don't think Money is an issue for Ed....
He has done very well in his first year parnership with Premier Stud UK.
I read on Pipa in there first local sprint race they had the first 20 positions vs 300+ birds.

The fact that the guy is moving overseas to race pigeons/enjoy his hobby full time might be the first clue.

I think the seller wants to throw out all doubts out the window as far as genetics are concerned. Still, why not offer the service, and exclude the bird itself? Maybe do $150 per bird ($100 for shipping to and from, and $50 for the actual neutering) sounds a little more enticing.

I know I am slow and all, but isn't that what fostering and forced polygamy is all about? You get your best cock and mate him to 3 hens and foster those eggs off under a lesser pair. After 2 rounds give your hens a break.

Or am I missing something obvious?

He probly tried this out and it didn't work the way he planned now he's just trying to get every penny he spent on this idea back. Kinda like most of the ppl selling birds on those sites they spend big money on birds breed out of them for 3 years and if they get somthing out of them they keep them if not they go up for auction trying to get back as much as they invested in the duds by just selling the pedigree.

Why on earth would the man go through the trouble of getting a vet to STERILIZE 13 cockbirds for him!? That's ridiculous and very expensive! All you need are some cheap or adopted pumpers and it's the exact same thing, except you take the stress of the hen because she'll have no part in feeding the babies. Mating her to a fertile cock and then hoping she'll accept the sterile cock in time, is just way too much trouble.

I've never understood it and I am a smart man! I must admit I don't mind buying a bird just for souvenir if it is a famous bird, but sterile like the white bandit. I will buy it just for the love for the bird. That goes with Cher-ami, too.
