Pipas cut £800,000 for nothing who needs to have pigeons to make easy dosh



Them and Elimar both making large sums. There should be a site setup by the Unions whereby commission goes to fighting raptor issues, not lining certain peoples pockets.

That is the best post I have ever read on a pigeon forum. I believe the RPRA already have a web site purpose built to sell single loft race birds.

And tae think i bought 10 ardans for £190 quid from Louela and they will probably be as much use as these over priced rip offs ,its absolutely ridiculous in a few years some thing else will be the breed of the day and Vandenbeele will drift off into the distant memory .

I don’t think that’s a fair comment to be honest about breed of the day. He’s been phenomenal since the 80’s both himself and his birds going to other places and doing damage in different countries etc. His family can’t be classed as a fly by night or a fad strain like many others. He seems to have always kept his family as “pure” as possible with not many introductions and has created a family in the truest sense. The pigeons in the auction are over priced I’m not denying that. But anyone who would take 6 YB’s from Louella over 6 yb’s from Gaby would need their heads examined. I’m not saying Louella has terrible pigeons, no doubt they have some phenomenal pigeons. But I’d say pound for pound the winners via Gaby would massively outweigh Louella any day of the week.

[/quotequote Louella stud has about 10 that I know of selected fanciers that test out there birds for them rigorously every year from new stock before anyone gets them and few have won in big company 6,000 or more birds Louella philosophy is keep price neat sell all year and has being doing so for years and should you win well he will top you up with another few

How often have you heard of Louella’s birds winning abroad? Or even going abroad? And by abroad I don’t mean Scotland 😂
