14 NPA 5247 Yellow Hen

Nice hard to find yellow German Beauty Homer. The German Beauty Homer was developed in the early 1900's by German fanciers who treasured their birds for physical beauty as opposed to strictly flying ability. A thin-necked, straight-legged bird of medium size and horizontal carriage, the German Beauty's most remarkable characteristic is its massive, almost semi-circular head with straight lower mandible of almost equal substance as the upper beak. The breed was originally known by its German name of "Schonheitsbrieftauben" which literally means "letter pigeons of beauty". "Brieftauben" is the German word for homing pigeons, literally "letter pigeons". As the story goes, the breed obtained its present name "Deutsche Schautauben" or "German Show Pigeon" when Hitler nationalized all German homing pigeons for the war effort. By designating it a show pigeon rather than a homer the German fanciers were able to avoid losing all their stock to the German war machine. Most of the current stock in the USA goes back to a number of imports from Germany and Switzerland made by Dr. K. Robert Durig of the University of Louisville in the early 1970's, although there were earlier importations by Leroy Tharp of Mississippi and George Lander of New York State. Price is $60 plus shipping SOLD LB

Trio of Oriental Roller

All NPA banded with band numbers 13 npa 3321 cock, 11 npa 221 hen, 13 npa 3323 cock? The Oriental Roller pigeon origins come from the Middle East and Asian countries, namely Pakistan, Turkey, Syria, Kurdistan, which is northern Iran, Iran and other countries in the Asian part of the world. Orientals are a very old breed and are known for their performance or rolling and their different style of body. It is believed that this bird was used in crossing with other birds to make the present day rollers. The Oriental Roller has stood the test of time and is still in its original form and type. The bird does not have an oil gland, which is one of its characteristics. The Oriental carries its wings below its tail and it has more than the normal twelve tail feathers. An average of fourteen to sixteen is common. The Oriental does not fly in a kit as well as does the Birmingham Roller. They prefer to be more individuals and do their own thing in the air. Smaller kits of ten to fifteen birds do much better than larger ones. Price is $60 plus shipping SOLD PT

Pair of Damascene Pigeons

I have approximatley 8 pair of damascene pigeons total to sell. They are very tough to find show qaulity Damascene pigeons. As with many ancient breeds, it is impossible to determine the definitive origin of the Damascene. Damascenes, or Mahomets, as they are often referred to in early written and oral accounts, are even mentioned on Egyptian papyrus rolls and stone carvings. Although it is commonly believed that the Damascene originated in Damascus, Syria (hence the name Damascene), there are indications that the breed might have been developed in either Turkey or Iran (Persia). Even back then in the 17th century, Willughby (1667) described the breed as being an old breed. Price is $40 plus shipping per pair or $35 a pair if you take all 8 pair. SOLD
