    I just recently got my first Pouter pigeon and I LOVE her. I was wondering if anyone has any for sale that they would be willing to ship to me in WA. State? Thanks

    I got a pair of pouters as well awhile back. I have been using them as foster parents of late and are now on their first eggs that I have allowed them to incubate.

    These particular birds are weak fliers and could not find their way home from around the corner. Some fanciers develop them as thief pouters (to bring home pigeons from other lofts). I am hoping their offspring have more capabilities.

    I did not know that!
    You are exactly right Larry. The only time I ever heard that loud clapping sound is just after a pair of birds have treaded and flew off. The pouters do that loud clapping sound on practically every flight now that you mention it. I never thought anything of it until now. Limited is an understatement when talking about my particular pair.
