Hi ****!

You might want to join this Yahoogroups: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/pigeonringcollectors/?yguid=218868278

There are some long time pigeon ring collectors there that have unbelievable collections. In their database or files area is also some very helpful information about tracing the origin of a band if you need to do so.

I know that we have members here that sometimes have left over bands at the end of a year. Perhaps some of them would be willing to send you and your darling grandson some bands!

Hi ****,

Nice to meet you and Jack!
I'm afraid I can't help with your ring collection, as I only deal with ferals, but if I come across anyone who races pigeons here in Portugal, I will do my best!
The photos you posted are lovely. And this is for Jack:

Hi ****,
I don't use rings as I only do rehabing pigeons and doves, but next time when I go to the shop I will check for rings.
Regards to you and your grandson from South Africa

Well he does have some beautiful plump birds there. I only have a feral who cannot fly so I would not need a band for her. I can't let her outside alone without her being in a cage.

And Maggie says hi to Mr. Squeaks! She would dearly love to visit Mr. Squeaks but I told her no, that isn't happening, he's probably got a mate by now anyways.

Probably shouldn't have said that.

She's upset again.

Right now she's playing mommie again with two new eggs - and napping whenever she thinks I'm not around. :rolleyes:

ROFL...no, reassure Maggie that Mr. Squeaks still wants ME for his mate. He regards ALL others as intruders. But he does think Maggie is a cutie!

Woe and Gimie may have another set of eggs soon...we'll see...it's about "that" time! None have ever been fertile.

Hope this news will make Maggie feel better!

Love, Hugs and Scritches

Told her what you said and she looked at me funny, "Why does he want to mate with a human?"

I told her, "I have no idea".

"I think he needs a real woman to hang around with" she says.

"Yep, but you're not going to be the one," I said.

She gave me a dirty look after that.

Maggie could be a wonderful mate for Squeaks. Please be sure and tell her that.

Squeaks has not had access to hens since I found him as a squeaker in 2003. I had him for at least 3 years before I reluctantly brought in 2 non-releasables who seemed to get along together.

By that time, Squeaks was bonded to me. When I added my West of England Tumbler, WoeBeGone, he and Gimie (the only hen) took one look at each other and it was love at first sight. Poor Dom was odd pij out. While I can let Dom out with Woe and Gimie, he attacks Woe and Gimie has to come to his defense! Poor Dom is lookin' awfully scruffy 'cause Gimie grabs and pulls...there go the head and neck feathers. *sigh* I keep Squeaks with me when they are out because he will attack ALL of them and shows no quarter! :eek:

Bet THAT makes Maggie feel better!

You might want to join this Yahoogroups: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/pigeon

we are members of the yahoo group the problem with the group five members contacted me I sent IHU Irish Homing Union rings and jack phone number rings these people emailed nightly and once they must have got the rings/bands the emails stopped they never even sent an email to say they got the rings/bands I have bough jack rings / bands of ebay but then again someone was selling counterfeit rings/bands that's why I'm asking racing fancier for rings that way I know jack is getting the real deal

Just a thought, Maybe you should try trading some..?

I have some IHU rings if anyone wants to trade
again thanks **** and grandson jack
