Fortunately this hasn't been the case yet, but we do want to have in place in writing the terms as to not have us hold on to birds indefinately
Your pigeons come to Minnesota, which has a cool temperature for nearly the entire year. Be careful of other importers, who deal with extreme heat and provide lower end shipping & quarantine standards. Next collection will take place Dec 1st Previous collection was end of October. Let me know if you need a pick-up. Pigeons have been arriving in beautiful condition. Sometimes we collect twice in busier months.
Importing both racing and some fancy breeds of pigeons has never been easier. We handle everything during each step of the process. We are the only importer that uses a very high-end exclusive quarantine. Only the best for your pigeons. All sexes are separated and "like" breeds are kept together. Do not try to save $5-$10 and have your pigeon go missing for months or arrive in terrible conditions, or even worse arrive deceased. No importer can compare to Kuhn Family Lofts.
We import from the famous, and lessor known fanciers.
What We Do:
- We will have your pigeon(s) for importing picked up at the breeder's loft, and delivered to Dutch Quarantine & Veterinary Facilities (ATF).
-We will ship your pigeon(s) at a discounted online USPS rate. We charge less than the actual postage compared to if you had to walked in to a post office to ship.
-We always ship birds in "NEW" express mail shipping boxes.
-We never add on extra for handling, post office shipping or shipping boxes, like others may do. Don't be tricked by all hidden cost other importers may tack on. Keep in mind that small items like medication can be shipped along with birds at NO extra shipping cost, providing there is room in the box.
-We import from the United Kingdon and many other European countries.
-Every shipment that arrives at Kuhn Family Loft is wormed, bathed, and given every possible grain & mineral.
