Our Gold Band Loft holds 41 pair of World class breeders
from top lofts in the United States, Belgium, Holland and
South Africa. These 41 pair are housed in our new Gold Band
Breeding Loft , all in individual breeding pens 30" wide,
5' deep, and 7' high. The young that we breed from these
41 pair are weaned into a large holding pen with plenty
of sun and allowed to mature through summer to early fall.
We make sure that they meet our standard of excellence before
they are shipped out in October and November. We want our
customers to be happy with what they get!
To get one of these young birds from our program this is
how it works. To help support the World of Wings each year
the AU and the IF donate the Gold Bands to us. You may purchase
these bands from us for $10.00 per band or 25 bands for
$250.00 and etc. You can buy as many or as few as you like.
Clubs, Combines or individuals can buy Gold Bands. You must
purchase 25 of our Gold Bands to receive a young breeder
from one of the 32 pair of breeders in our loft. The selection
order is determined by the date you purchase your bands
. If you purchase 50 Gold Bands you get 2 birds, 75 Gold
Bands, 3 birds and etc.
Now all you have to do is take the Gold Bands you purchased
from us and band your own pigeons with them. Fly your Gold
Banded birds in your own club and or combine. If you feel
you have a bird that has scored well enough in your club
or combine just mail the race results to us before the deadline
of Dec 31st of each year with your bird hi -lighted and
race sheet signed by your Race Secretary. We will calculate
your birds performance vs the other applicants and determine
