Talk to people at your local clubs. I am also from michigan and everyone I talked to offered me really good youngsters for free. I honestly had to turn down birds because I didn't have room for them. Pigeon people understand the cost associated with just getting started. If you talk to people get to know them they will give you some of their best birds.
Thank you! I do not live close to a club, but I really want to get back into rasing some racers! I don't know anyone. I love this site, its the only way I will find some birds, hope it don't take long. I live in the Tawas area, if you know someone I would appreciate it.
