Just thought I would pass it along that there is a Ludo 09 YB for sale on ipigeon.com. Here is a pic and its pedigree. I purchased a YB from this loft about 3 weeks ago.
i personally dont find this bird particularly impressive but you also have to realise that its hard to judge a bird on looks alone when they are that young too ...so you are pretty much just taking a chance on how its gonna look and perform once they do mature .. its hard to judge without any race results behind the bird and even with them its not like this bird is going to follow in the footsteps of its parentage as a garentee and a name alone isnt going to carry any weight in the end now is it but sometimes it does helpBecky, if you wouldn't mind, would you share with an old man what you see in the Ludo youngster that looks good. I am not familiar with them, and I seem to be getting senile, so your youth, and superior intelligent knowledge would be greatly appreciated, Don.
I always seem to get in trouble when I comment on any bird advertised as a "Ludo"....and shown here inviting comments. Last time I put my two cents in, I received "hate mail" from the guy selling the bird.Just thought I would pass it along that there is a Ludo 09 YB for sale on ipigeon.com.

That is my point exactly. It is no different, and I have a problem with people talking about their Jannsens or Sions too, or any other fancier for that matter. In my mind they have not earned the right to call themselves by that family.I don't own any of those birds, but I don't see it any different to say that my bird is Janssen or a Sion. One would assume they are not direct stock, unless so stated.
Not exactly...You have a point, however. It is accepted that if I purchased a bird from Ludo himself, and it is from his lines. Then I own a Ludo bird. It is not a Thomas bird. Go to the PIPA auction site, or other sites, and the birds may be designated as Ludo's, even though they are not currently owned by Ludo himself. It is common and accepted in the sport to describe the bird/s as such.
If I purchase a bird from Joe Blow, and Joe Blow obtained the parents from Ludo, bred them and then sold me a youngster from them, it is accepted that they are Ludo Line birds. Not Joe Blow birds.
I can not address the respect to Ludo aspect. Respect is an intangible thing IMO. However, the internet is full of people advertising birds that are "Ludo's", and it is accepted and understood what that means.
Take this example. If Joe Blow sold a bird last month to Ludo and then Ludo decided that it didn't fit into his plans (for whatever reason), and Ludo sold it to me. Is it a Ludo bird?
No, IMHO. But in your way of looking at things, it would be. If I understood you correctly.
Absolutly none taken!!I'm just being contrary. All in fun and frolic. I mean no disrespect to your statements or opinions.
Heck. I'm wrong more often than I am right, for sure.
