Some birds here got for nothing. Bred me some unique birds. Porky crossed with Miss Piggy bred me Stamina and Puddle Jumper. Stamina loft flies for almost 30 mins!!! Puddle Jumper flies over puddles, the others walk around!! Oh yes, also bred me Sideways Sally. Hand raised as a young bird. She could not pick up grain, she is so cross eyed! Always flying in to things..unique birds!!!

i think 30 quid is too much for a yb to race, if you bought a few especially.......I think £20 is a price you can race them at.

yes that's true edgie, its not cheap to rear a healthy good yb properly......but that's from a breeders point of view, I`m thinking of a buy to race point of view, and its got to be a price which is right if your going to race them.

unless people are loaded like you edgie..... Razz Razz lol!

most will sell kits of y/bs to race from between 150 -200 that's plenty to pay for racing mind I have paid a lot more and raced and lost them most lads wont sell for less if u take into account the price of their birds and cost to rear them

Would need to know their results,if they are selling 100s of youngsters then they must have a large team,if they dont win their share in their own club/fed then would assume all is not what it seems, alarm bells would ring if the usual excuses came out, we have all heard the excuses. Been too busy. Done all i asked of them. My birds win everywhere else they go i have the best bloodlines etc etc

£25 is plenty for a young bird to race or put to stock with pedigrees but we have to pay much more if you won't the blood lines

Never mentioned studs,was thinking more of those who breed 100/200 to sell,they must have huge teams so if they use pedigrees to sell birds and not their own performances the let the buyer beware

I know plenty good lofts who sell their surplus y/bs and it gives fanciers a chance to get new blood lines at a fraction of the cost it would cost for the stock birds as they say u pays your money takes your chance sean

Agreed,but plenty feather merchants who ain't got the performances to sell their birds with so make excuses and sell on pedigree alone

I suppose you can only fly your birds with the competition you have , I am lucky I fly in a decent sized club although they don't all send every week , that's why I like the nationals , plenty to compete against there
