Hello all, been hangin around for a little while and finally decided to make the leap and register:D well to start i used to be a pigeon enthusiast in my younger days but grew from them with school and what have you. Well now im looking to get back into the hobby and have my loft and breeding pens all ready, BUT NO BIRDS!!! and the trouble is i cant find any local clubs (southern california north SD) and so cant find any birds and dont really have a desire to spend 100$ to get a pair and have them shipped to me :( so i was wondering if anyone knew of people who maybe local to me with who i could talk about the hobby and maybe acquire some birds. Any help would be much apprciated as to i miss my birds so much, best wishes Patt P :)

Patt, welcome to Pigeon Talk.
We've got quite a few members in CA, so just hang on......they'll be around eventually.
What kind of pigeons do you want? Homers? Rollers? Show birds?
Got any pictures of your loft you could post. If you've been around for a while, you KNOW we love pictures..........

I've actually sent a PM to one of our members in Oceanside, CA. He knows a lot of people with every kind of pigeon.............I'm sure he'll be around soon.

Some people do. Racers though, breed in either Jan, Feb and March OR Feb, March and April..........depends on a few things. I personlly like to race the older young birds, so I raise my babies early in the year.
I'm sure the birds would prefer that I do it differently. :rolleyes:
