Clair Hetland owned Foys for many years before selling it to the current owners. I can speak for Clair, as he has good birds and is a tough guy to beat in old birds.

I would hope the owner would have good pigeons! LOL Personally speaking I bought a bird from Kal-El that I do not think I could have ever bought the match from Foys! My advice to anyone buying is to make friends in the pigeon world first. Jim

Yes, that is good advice. It is not that Foys may have bad birds it is just I like to know more about the owner before I buy. Every bird I own was from someone who's name comes up in pigeon clubs, breeding, shows and/or this forum. Foys, who's birds are they?

Hahaha...thanks Jim for the kind words. I'm glad 1719 is with you. I still have pictures and kids off him. I'm hoping 1719's grandson 215 is as good as he is!

I'm from Long Island it isn't out here. But I do know where it is because I have a friend that is stationed there. It's upstate in Watertown NY which is about 10 miles from Lake Ontario.

Did you end up in Central New York combine? Dale is a really nice guy, I like him alot! You know....... if you did want to get in on this years races a member of the Ithaca club always breeds WAY too many young birds and I am sure he would be happy to get you enough to get a race team together. He has a good reputation and has REALLY nice birds. Another member of this forum has gotten some of his youngsters and was very pleased. If you're interested let me know and I can PM his info to you.
