Testimonial: Charles Jonas of the San Antonio Racing Pigeon Club

Charles Jonas called me during his young bird season to let me know how the health of his birds was holding up since this was the first season he was using our products. He races in the San Antonio Limited RPC where they fly 7 A races and 7 B races in October, November and December.  He told me that the young bird sickness in his club is very predictable and was a concern that he was trying to address with as little medication as possible.

Apple Instagram features my photos

In November, I was surprised (and somewhat skeptical) of an email I received from the marketing agency that represents Apple. They wanted to feature my photos of pigeons that I had taken with my iPhone.

Mike Ganus Family Loft open house tour and 2018 auction photos

I had a great weekend visiting Mike Ganus at his open house loft tour and auction. I got to work a little on the next episode of Pigeon Beat, handle some world-class pigeons and meet some new and old friends.  Mike had an impressive, world-class collection of breeders on display at his loft and 60 children off of them that sold at his auction. The high sellers were two children of Mix, the 2018 1st place winner of the South Africa Million Dollar Pigeon Race. They sold to Tim Lucas for $21,000 and $27,000.  Enjoy the photos below of the auction, including photos of Jim Ward, Tim Lucas, Frank McLaughlin, Mike Ganus, Andy Skwiat, Nikolaas Gyselbrecht, Big Andy Larentzakis, Lou Colletta...
