Well, first of all......can you tell who this person is? Maybe someone here knows him or knows "of" him......edit " sorry i ment Racing Homer Price"
There is a local feed store owner who owns racing homers, he seems to know almost everything about them. He raced for years won many trophies with this blood line and can tell me everything from dusting the floor to reason for different feathers on the bird, he has some distance flyers and some short distance flyers. Really nice guy! He said he’ll sell me 50$ a young bird, Is this good.. I don’t know Thanks Brent
But regardless of that..........there is no way that anyone here or anywhere else for that matter, can tell you that $50 is or is not a good price.
We had an old guy in our combine a few years back. He's quit racing now, but man, when he WAS racing............he was HARD to beat. Local people would pay rediculous prices for his birds (rediculous as far as I'M concerned)....he didn't keep pedigrees.....only race results and he had the results to show. I don't think I've EVER heard any one say how good those high priced birds they bought were for THEM.
I look at it like this. If you can afford to spend, say, $500 on 10 of these birds and only ONE or maybe NONE turn out to be worth a darn, are you ok with that? Buying a pigeon is like a box of chocolates........it may LOOK pretty........may be wrapped up REAL nice.....but you don't REALLY know what you're getting until you "open it up" (fly it or breed from it)........could be the best $500 you ever spend, or...............
