So the RPRA have their annual auction on just now and there are some 400+ lots up for grabs.

A lot of people are buying birds based on the premise that even if a bird didn't position well (on average) or in the final race. It's still going to be bred off someones best pigeons as you wouldn't pay £150 odd quid to enter a duffer.

Two schools of thought, 1) Some pigeons mature later then others so a bad YB can be a great OB. 2) Some peoples best pigeons are still sh** (no offence to anybody).

Would you buy from such an auctions? Yay or Nay, share your thoughts people. :drinking-coffee-200:

Living not far from the one loft site quite a few of the lads in the club have bought birds from the sales over the years. Some have been lucky and bred good birds from their purchases, others said they haven't had any joy. I suppose it's like all sales.
