KURT'S PIGEON'S

Thanks for taking the time to visit my website. My name is Kurt Walker and I live in the Salt Lake City, Utah area. I have put together this website with the hope that it might help those just getting into pigeons as well as those that have been raising pigeons for years. I do not claim to be an expert, but I have spent quite a bit of time studying the hobby.

It was my grandfather that first got me involved in pigeons when I was ten or so. My father and I built a loft, and I started with 2 pairs of Birmingham Rollers. Unfortunately, my family and I moved and I had to stop raising pigeons.

Not too long ago I decided to give it another go. It has been great. I now raise Indian Fantails, Brunner Croppers, Zitterhalls, Helmets, Romanian Naked-Neck Tumblers, Racing Homers, and Birmingham Rollers. I don't have a lot of space, so I keep just a few of each breed.

For those interested in starting, I would give a few recommendations. First, read the book Pigeons: everything about purchase, care, management, diet, diseases, and behavior of pigeons : with a special chapter, Understanding pigeons by Matthew M. Vriends, . It gives a lot of good information, from how to build a loft, to different breeds of pigeons. Next, visit a pigeon show near you. There are so many different breeds of pigeons. This will give you a good idea on what is out there, and also give you the chance to find and talk to breeders. The internet can also be a big help. And last, join a local pigeon club. Nothing can be better for the new fancier than to probe the minds of the experts.

I have to say that I have not found a more enjoyable hobby than raising pigeons. My wife and three daughters have also had a good time. If I can be of help, or if you would like to link your website, please contact me. Good Luck!
