Kowie Pigeon Racing Club “baby” pigeon auction

The Kowie Pigeon Racing Club (KPRC) is hosting an auction of “baby” pigeons and steak braai on Saturday, October 30 at the Port Alfred Country Club, and all are invited to enjoy the day and bid at the auction.

The auction is intended to help raise funds and enlighten future pigeon fanciers in the art of pigeon racing.

Squeakers (baby pigeons) are donated by pigeon fanciers to the club and auctioned off to other fanciers or to any member of the public. The squeakers are then assigned to members of the KPRC and housed in their lofts. They are trained with the KPRC member’s own birds in preparation for the upcoming 2022 racing season. They will then compete in a special “sell” race in July 2022. The cash prizes for the top three positions are paid out in a ratio of 50 : 30: 20%. Buyers of these squeakers will be informed of their welfare as well as the results of the pre-sale training and races.

If any member of the public would like to participate in this exciting auction, or simply learn more about pigeon racing while enjoying a relaxing braai steak, please contact Linton Randall for catering purposes no later than Friday 29th. October at 4 p.m.

The agenda for the day will be a word of welcome and remarks by the President of the Provincial Pigeon Organization of the Eastern Province at 11 a.m., followed by a steak braai, socialization and the observation of squeakers from 12 noon. The squeaker auction starts at 2 p.m.

Information and catering, contact Linton Randall at 079-609-3517.
