Been bored out of my mind this evening so I thought about the price of this pigeon and had a look at the auction site, I noticed he had 25 pages of birds for sale, so I thought I'd try and work out how much they all cost, well I did 10 pages and got fed up, and the total for the first 10 pages was, 1.056.625 euros, staggering amount of money, if anyone want to go from page 11 to 25 be my guest lol

madness paying this sort of money for a pigeon, just because you pay a lot of money it doesnt mean it will breed good pigeons........

fella must have more money than sense.

Think he has more sense than money Very Happy

Put this cock on the bull system and /or get him on an artificial insemination programme, then sell the young for crazy money to the people who do have more money than sense.

The buyer has done it before with Birdy winner of SCMDPR, he paid 800,000 south african rand. He is a big buyer of these SCMDPR pigeons plus others as we now see.

even though there are plenty of idiots in the pigeon world, I don't see how anyone could possibly get their money back splashing out this sort of ridiculous money.....

LaughingLaughingLaughingSmileSmile Sprint man type are we Lofty Wink Wink "10 pages" I would have pulled the pin after page one etc. I suspect, everything is relevant in life as such Rolling Eyes Rolling Eyes & for the person concerned & the money he forks out  for pigeons it is nothing more than pocket money for him compared to us peasant types in the game, who have to count every cent we have at times to see out the day Wink Wink. cheers
