Hi,

I heard you can Import pigeons & there eggs from countrys outside of Australia. How much is it to do this ? If I could import any pigeon it would be the Victorian Crownd or the Pheasant Pigeon. Anything beautiful I guess. lol.

Thanks, Jesse.

At those prices per bird I'd rather be spending my money on trying to work out a way to freeze semen for AI's in poultry and than bring straws in from overseas for use here.Much as they do with dogs,cats,horses,cattle etc etc etc.

Actually now thats a thought for a new thread. :idea: :idea:

Maybe Jase can put a link up for all of us for this info Jesse.

Hi,

Yer. I think AUS does have the VCP (Victorian crownd pigeon) But isnt it like $40,000 ? How much is it to import pigeon eggs then ? Do you need a special incubator to hatch there eggs in ?

Thanks, Jesse.

Hi,

Hmm . . . ok. Thanks. Are the Victorian crownd pigeon & the pheasant pigeon classified as fancy pigeons ?

Thanks, Jesse.
