Racing Pigeons for Sale
Note: Prices and availability are subject to change at any time.  
Prices do not include shipping charges unless stated
See below list of birds FOR SALE!  Page updated 4/14/19
Note:  Overall we do not lose many birds so we must sell them as we have no room for them all.   This family of birds I have developed give it their all and try
hard to get home.  
They don't give up and they can stay in the air all day long.  This is why they are good on long hard races (we won 14, yes fourteen 600-mile
races)    These are the kind of birds you need to win average speed.   
These birds are racing homers that "don't quit"!
The one thing none of us has to spare is TIME  (life is too short) so don't waste it trying to breed really good birds, get some
NOW and start breeding from genetically proven quality right away!
Believe me it still takes TIME to build a good competitive team but it is worth the fun you will have THEN.
Remember, the key is in the performance of the bird and NOT eye sign, NOT fancy strain names, NOT in the drugs you give them, NOT what some fellow in
Europe did years ago
, and NOT because you paid 5,000.00 for a pair of breeders.  These are birds with time tested performance at the distance with many
winners/breeders of winners in their pedigrees.
THEN you will have the birds that have the GENES to create MORE very good race birds!  
YOU will win with these birds and breed winners from them and be one of the few in the world with the "Goldstar" bloodline.
Everyone who has purchased our Goldstar birds has been extremely happy with the results.  (see the testimonials on the Contact Us page).  They have won many races and
average speeds for lofts in all areas of the US (as well as Canada and Taiwan).  Over and over again they are put against top birds from all over the US (fellows that buy kits
from us as well as else where) and the Goldstars end up out performing them all!
We guarantee you will be pleased with every bird or they will be replaced (if notified within the first 30 days) at no cost other than shipping.  (bird or band may be required to be returned)  Of course birds may not be
available immediately as we have and keep very few (but high quality) birds on hand.

Shipping fees for birds are as follows:
(within continental US) new costs as of 10/1/16.  Alaska is slightly more and Hawaii is much more due to health papers needed.
Note:  I always fully insure the birds plus postal rates have went up recently.
Shipping for 1 to 3 young birds or 1 to 2 old birds 80.00
Shipping for 4 to 6 young birds or 3 to 4 old birds 100.00  (east or west coast 110.00)
We have and can ship to Taiwan and Hawaii and other countries (maybe) through special exporters.  We should be able to ship to PR as well but these places cost extra due to
health papers and distance.  Fees will have to be quoted from the exporter and are over and above the cost to ship the birds to him.  It is very expensive to ship a small amount of
birds (say 1 to 4 or so).  Usually less (per bird) when 6 to 8 or more birds are shipped.  You may want to get with a friend(s) and order more birds to cut the price per bird.
Note: we reserve the right to refuse to sell to certain people and or locales.  *If you buy young bird kits to race we will not sell YB kits to anyone else in your club  
or combine if you wish (but you must tell us who they are).  The same with breeders if you purchase more than a couple pairs.  *You must be a good customer
and preferably have the desire to develop and maintain the "Goldstar" strain.  You will be unique by being the only fellow in your area with this strain.  (and you
will WIN with them!)   Try them and when you see how good they are you will want more.  By just adding a pair or two a year or a kit or two in time you will have
the kind of birds you will always have come home no matter the weather or distance.   You will have your own version of the Goldstar strain.
Quality Guaranteed!   
We are not here to sell poor quality birds and or to peddle birds for the sole purpose of making money.   Our purpose to breed a better long distance racing pigeon and to help
fellow fanciers compete with and develop their own line of Goldstar birds, this is our goal.  With young birds it is possible to get a bird once in a while that does not thrive and
develop into a nice racing homer type bird.   If this happens to one of the birds you got from us please let me know and I will replace it with another FREE of charge
.   With old
birds you will know within days if not minutes that the bird is of good quality.   With old birds we are taking a chance with every mating that they will click and raise winners for us.  
Sometimes it takes years before we realize they are not doing what we want out of them.   Most all our old birds have pedigrees with many 600-mile winners in them so they
should carry the blood (genes) to develop MORE distance winners.

With 30-day old young birds they can change as they develop.  I understand it can take a month or two or more to see that a bird is not going to turn out so well.   Please let me
know if you get a young bird in your kit that does not thrive and appear to be a bird that will compete (or breed) due to its body etc.  I will replace this bird with another young bird
the next year when you buy another kit.   I may ask you to send the band back to me should this happen.   Information about the birds helps me with my breeding program so I can
determine whether the mating is good or a bad one.   

Losing birds does not constitute replacement birds.  Birds can be lost due to wires, hawks, theft, etc.  Losing birds can be due to unseen illnesses, poor handling, disastrous
training or races etc.   The Goldstars here simply do not get lost (at least VERY few do here).   They are distance birds so they may be considered slow maturing birds.  
However, they do win 300 and 400-mile Concourse races as young birds!!!!!!!

Again if you feel one of the young birds you received in a kit is not of the quality you expected let me know and with your next order I will give you a free bird or discount for a free
bird or give you a credit or discount off of a breeder.  Note:  With any free replacement birds you must pay for the shipping to get the bird to you.   

To compete you need good birds AND they must be healthy, even super healthy, if you want to be at the top.  You have to do what it takes to get the birds to that point of super
healthy through you handling techniques.  I will gladly help you with that if you ask me and will send you a schedule of what I do to get the birds ready to race.  However, I by no
means am an expert at this but I try and I learn on going every year.  I have been doing this for 45 years.

Young bird kits 2019:   available to ship in April.
Baby's out of flying loft six for 500.00 (limited time offer, usually 600.00)
Out of breeders if available* at 200.00 each (3 for 500.00).
Out of Blue Rockets 300.00 each or 2 for 500.00.  Four (4) for 800.00 if you put them in the HC Race sent direct to the Loft.
Send a 200.00 deposit for each kit you want.
(note shipping date depends on when I can get birds about 30 days old.  Birds are put together Feb 14th so approximate shipping is mid April. A few Rockets available in April.

Birds will all be down from some of my fourteen 600-mile winners and or their close relatives.  They will be suitable for breeding from and or racing in competition.    You will be
more than pleased with these birds!  Unless you buy more than 6 birds I highly suggest you stock the 6 and breed from them the next spring.  If you get three pairs which can
produce you 12 to 18 babies to fly next year plus you can raise some late ones to add more Goldstars to your breeding program.  This way you can get enough birds to really
observe what they can and will do for you.  You need birds that have a GOOD proven gene pool to work with.  
I have very few birds so what you will get is out of my very
best.  You do realize that not all birds will be winners plus we all have the hawk problem etc so having 6 or more than 6 to work with will be better.

I dare you to compare a kit of these 6 birds to ANY you purchase from anyone else.  After two years you will see you have more Goldstars left and they
will have out raced and out bred any other kit of 6 you might buy.  I know because I have been told this over and over by fanciers that have acquired
these birds.  Update, once again I am told a pure Goldstar just won Champion of the show for a Goldstar customer.
All Goldstar birds come with detailed Hawkeye pedigrees.  Ask for pedigrees sent to you NOW to see the history of each birds family.
I will email or snail mail them to you to review and see for your self.   You will know what you are getting before you purchase them.
Two birds shipping is the same price as one bird (shipping cost 80.00) and 4 birds (4 old birds or 6 young birds) shipping fees (cost 110.00) are the
same for 3 birds so it is wise to buy 2 or 4 or 6 or 8 birds.  Plus I will give you a discount for quantity.  Cost includes box and FULL insurance.
Note about insurance:  I have been told several times that most sellers of birds do not insure their shipments, therefore the PO only gives them a 100.00 per box insurance.  If
anything happens to the birds (which is rare) then they will have to replace the birds or refund your money.  Since you are counting on these birds then we will just replace the
birds with "other" birds (if and when available).  Thankfully I have never had a shipment lost or birds dead but there is always a chance.  My birds have value and all are special so
I pay to fully insure them because they are that special and it is worth the few dollars extra.  I just can not go out and pick 6 more birds out because I raised those 6 just for you.  I
do not have a pigeon factory like other "feather merchants".  The Goldstars are special and are limited.
A Note about the bird pictures.  As you can see these bird pictures are not doctored at all.  I use a rather cheap camera by todays standards and put the birds in a box in my
shed and take a couple pictures and pick the best one.  So the birds are far better than their pictures show.  Birds are in the molt as well on some pictures.  Everyone who has
ever received birds from us have been more than happy with them and you will to
You will love these beauties and you will produce excellent birds from them.   This could be the foundation of your own special Goldstar family of birds.  Have
something different no one else has in your area.  As an on-going Goldstar customer I will not sell to any other loft in your area (but let me know your area).  If
you want to have the similar success that I have had, you need a good foundation of these birds so as to create as many mating scenarios as possible
incorporating the many winners in each race birds pedigree.  (there are several 600-mile winners in each birds pedigrees)   You will have fun studying the
pedigrees and trying special matings.   You can not find better birds at these kind of prices ANYWHERE!
Hint: The BEST scenario for one to obtain a good racing team that will compete in all races and especially the long distance races:  Buy a 6-bird kit of
Goldstar young birds and stock them.  Next spring breed them together according to pedigree so as not to breed too closely as they are all related
somewhat.  Fly some of them if you wish but stock selected birds from each pair.
The following spring your stock loft will have perhaps 8 pair of pure Goldstars.  Now you will have a loft full of birds with the genes of many 600-mile
winners.  Once established then bring in or mate some of these Goldstars to a GOOD bird from outside or bird distantly related to the Goldstars.  Some
of my best racers are crosses, however it is hard to find quality birds to cross into them.  I try a couple of birds out side the blood line every year and it is
hard to find a really good one but I think I have such a hen now.  She is the right size and of Aarden blood as well.

You must know that no matter even if the pedigree is full of 600-mile winners, not every bird will be a winner.  It just does not happen that all birds are
good.  However, with the genes so abundant that are down from quality birds, some will be outstanding racing pigeons.  You must work with them and
help them mature into a champion.  Test them and weed out slow birds (these may be good breeders rather than racers).

Coming soon for 2019, the Goldstar Blue Rockets!  
These are birds that win or score high at One loft money races!

These birds have been scoring at the top of competition in money races.  When I flew young birds I always did well considering the course but being
bored with the same race course (locally) I have lost interest racing them locally.  But a couple years ago I did some experimental breeding to specifically
compete in money races.  The first year I sent birds to a handler race in Pa.  Of the 3 birds I sent 2 were in the money with different handlers, plus the
3rd bird won a Combine 250-mile race two weeks prior to the money race.  I knew I was on to something as the next year, of the 550 entries they scored
near the top again.  Many birds were lost but NOT these Goldstars!

So in 2018 I sent 3 to the Midwest AU Convention.  I drove to the handlers loft, in Wisconsin, was there on race day.  A terrible day for racing (38
degrees overcast strong cross winds) as the handler
only got 2 day birds out of 21 birds he sent (from top US lofts) and yes they were my TWO
Goldstar Rockets
and they were both in the money out of a total of 699 birds to start with (364 to the race).  No other lofts in his area (city) got ANY day
birds at all and some  no second day birds either (they were no reports).

Also, in 2018 I entered 3 birds in the Hoosier Classic Million dollar race.  Two of them did fantastic (the third was not a Rocket), no I did not win money in
this race but the birds did great as you will see in the summary below.

There were 3,290 birds to start, they lost over a 1000 birds before the 100, but my 2 Rocket Stars were still there.  This is how they did,
Bird #5812 BC hen named "Leave your Lover" was 151st at the 100-mi qualifying race beating 94% of the 2000+ birds in the race, she beat 70% of the
birds on a 150 and the 180-mi race, she beat over 50% on the 220.  Even on the final race when she came the next morning she still beat 679 birds.  
(She has been sold)

Bird #5813 BB hen (flew as a cock) beat 60% of all birds on the 100, 150, and the 180-mi race.  On the 220 she was 56th place beating 97% of the
1895 birds.  On the final race she beat 70% of the birds.  The final race was a blow home type race with 32 on the drop from 350-miles, not really a
competitive race.  #5813 (race name "Money on My Mind") was less than 80 minutes from winning $250,000.00.

They were so close to it that I know that with a little luck or harder race, which usually happens, these birds can compete with the best.  I watched the
trainers and races live and on
www.wincompanion.com website and these "Rocket Stars" constantly beat top name lofts or was there with them and
these lofts had anywhere from 9 to 40 bird entries each in this race (to our 2 birds).  The birds for sale above are related but I will have young birds with
the Rocket blood this spring.  I did get hens 5812 and 5813 shipped back to me.  I will breed out of these birds plus their brothers sisters parents etc for
entry next year.  I should have some for sale as young birds.  Maybe you should put some of these in that race, next years HCRACE.com first place is
$500,000.00 with a total of $1,267,000.00 in total race money to be paid out.

If you are looking to put birds in a One Loft race and want me to ship them directly to it I can do that.  We can work out the details.   
Myself I intend to enter 4 Goldstar Blue Rockets in the HCRACE in 2019.  Plus get in two or three other OLR races
The one kit left is being held for B.W.  No more birds available at this time.

Special pricing right now, out of Race team 6 young birds for 600.00 plus shipping.   
3-bird kits out of Breeding loft are 500.00 per kit also should be available by April 15th for
shipping.  Quantities are very limited.   
Please inquire if you want me to put birds in a One Loft race for you.  
With too many birds on the Old Bird team I will most
likely post a couple extras here to sell in the coming
weeks.  Check back often.
