i think you should just buy 2010 young birds .... race results depend on the bird and the trainer,i been looking for racers for a while now but all i see is their parents race result or breed for stock birds.
does anyone have racers with real race results they want to let go.?
i think this woul;d be a great opportunity for anyone wanting to jump on into the world of pigeons and racing ... may I ask how many birds here are in need of a home and to be placed ?? sorry for your clubs and their familysd lossWe just had a member of our Black Hills Racing Club pass away. His brother has asked that we disperse of the birds. He activily raced with us for as long as I can remember, so the birds have been raced. Cost is just what it would cost to ship them from Rapid City, SD. Contact me privately, Jim at [email protected]

if you buy a bird with race results , all you can do is to breed him that it, you cant fly him ... he might go home.
If you get ten percent really good racers from your breeders, you have been an exceptionally lucky person. Many flyers with a loft of nothing but great birds in their lofts, can beat that number of course. But few newbies can. Without spending a lot of money.
No one who knows what they are doing in this sport, is going to let go of their best breeders. Unless they just happen to like you for some reason. If a person like that has to get out of the sport, they know plenty of people to funnel those really good breeders to, instead of a stranger.
Now don't get me wrong. You can get good breeders from many. Just not their BEST. IMO.
If I am a racing enthusiast, why in the world would I sell my best? Money? No. Winning means more to me than money.
Of course there are some who will disagree, and to whom money is everything or close to it. But, IMO, when it comes to serious racing enthusiasts, it ain't about the money. It is about being on top.
You can go to PiPa (pigeonparadise.com) and buy birds that have won races against thousands of birds. If you want and can afford to spend big money. Multiple winning birds can be found there, just about any day of the year.
Like most things in life. Money talks. If you ain't got a lot of it. You have to get the best you can afford and work your way up the ladder slowly.
I still say it is more about the handler than the birds. IMO, it is the opposite of poker. In poker it is 90% luck and 10% skill. In pigeon racing it is 10% luck and 90% skill.
Other opinions will naturally vary. For sure.
