    I bought a pair of Blondinettes off of pigeons4sale.com and it was a good experience. They shipped right away and the birds were very healthy.

    Quote:pigeons4sale.com? Their site is horribly set up, my experience buying birds off there was good the site srt up is not good. If you want anything other than racing homers you are going to have to spend some time going and checking ever couple weeks. ItÂ’s a lot of racing homers and now and then something "interesting" comes through. If you can find a breeder that offers what you want that may be a better option.

    Pigeons4sale has had some very bad reputation. Mostly because of the guy who runs it. I think it is ridiculous how you can't post any contact info in the descriptions of the items for sale. I guess it is to force you to buy/sell through the site and not privately.

    Since Eggbid.com went out of business, now there is egg-bid.com

    Before it went out of buisness I bought on eggbid.com twice. The first time I was buying a "proven mated pair" of Dragoons. I got two cocks that were out of shape, skinny, dirty and one had a respritory issue. I was able to take care of the problems within a week, except for not having any hens. The second time was much better. The birds arrived in good health and were even better looking than the picture. I both cases I had issues with the post office. The first time it took almost 3 days to get the birds from Michigan to Baltimore. I can drive it in less than that. The second time the post office said they tried to deliver to the house but no one was home. I was home all day. Then when I went to pick them up the postal carrier wasn't even back from his rounds. I had the same sort of issue a third time when I ordered some from a breeder.
