Pics of my new black Lahores, "Marjan" is the hen (on the right), and "Rami" is the cockbird (left).



Rami


Marjan


They are smaller than the Lahores you currently see at the shows (really huge and poofy), but they are still really big birds. Rami especially, I need both hands to hold him! I was looking for these smaller bodied/tighter feathered Lahores to breed and show, and when I saw this pair at Nationals in PA I knew I had to have them - my dream pair. I love them so much already. They are very sweet and soooo soft!!

Thank you, well I am getting to know a lot of really great breeders. I learned a valuable lesson about buying birds from someone I don't know who isn't recommended by someone I trust. All I can say to anyone else new is to try and buy birds locally from a reputable breeder, or contact the breed club and ask who they recommend and trust. (I got these Lahores directly from the Treasurer of the Lahore Club, and they are so clean, and healthy - I mean not even one stain on a white feather anywhere - you can tell they came from someone who really cares about his birds and knows what he's doing!)

Because my loft is small I really only want the best birds in there, so I've (finally, LOL) realized it's worth waiting to find the right birds and the right breeder.

I haven't shown yet but I want to start this year! I want to show Lahores this year - and maybe Ancients and Berliners too if I can.

I wish I had room for frillbacks! Ahhh, I can see I need to move so I can build another larger loft...
hehe

Hi KARIJO, Very good advice. I see many buying off good looking web sites and I say are they buying a pigeon or a web site. ..GEORGE;)

Raise Some Beautiful Babies!

Don't forget to buy a few size 10 bands and put them on your babies, then jump onboard Jet Blue down to Orange County Airport (if they go there) on Sept. 13 and bring them to the LAPC Young bird show!

Carful, they serve hamburgers for lunch

Debbie - yeah, I'm a sucker for the grouse muffed and shortfaced breeds. But Lahores have always been one of my most favorites (the smaller older style ones anyway, the new giant poofballs I don't like as much).

alb23m, "Marjan" is a mountain in Croatia, but it's also an infrequently used girl's name in a few languages (with a few meanings). I really liked it and when I met her at the show I don't know, the name popped in my head out of nowhere and I thought it's what I'd name her if she were mine. Same with Rami! I had them named before I even knew who the breeder was, LOL!!

Wolfwood, George, maryjane: thanks! :)

risingstarfans - Oh I'd love that! I would have to drive though, JetPoo still doesn't allow birds on board. Jerks... and hamburgers, har de har har... ;)

Brummie - ha!! Yeah my friend who races was marveling at how BIG Rami is. He said, "I thought you told me he was tiny??!!", and I keep insisting he IS tiny, compared to other Lahores I've seen. hehe But wow, is he a LOT of bird. He feels like he weighs at least twice what my feral, Brooklyn, does. At LEAST.
