    This is an announcement on Hubbell Kings. Today, I was on a website dedicated solely to pigeons, when I saw a post from 2001. In the thread following that post, I saw someone write that they think the original Hubbell line of King pigeons is dead. Let me tell you, it is not. Yes, I know that many Kings are wrongly called Hubbell birds, but I found a breeder from Washington State that owns a line directly from Hubbell. The breeder, named Perry, is a nice old man not trying to make a profit off of the pigeons he sells, but is simply trying to spread the joy of his gorgeous birds. He sells them cheap, with the price simply covering the cost of food. But I'm not here to advertise Perry, I'm here to inform the public that Hubbell Kings are not dead. I, in fact, own four birds of my own from the Hubbell line, bought from Perry. I've said it, and I'll say it again- the Hubbell line of King Pigeons is not dead!
