May auction
Second chance for top-class pigeons

In the international pigeon market, there are sometimes factors that complicate exports; for example, the export to certain countries may be very slow. In some cases, unsold pigeons may not reach the customer within a reasonable time frame. Also, failure to pay for purchased pigeons on time can result in pigeons being re-auctioned. In this May auction, you'll find a great variety of pigeons from leading lofts. Exceptional quality once again up for auction. A unique opportunity to get fantastic pigeons; seize this chance!

Collectors Items

The white ravens of pigeon racing, we all know them. Wherever you go in the world, just mention the names of icons like New Freddy, Harry, Kannibaal, Wittenbuik, Witbuik, or New Laureaat, and you'll see recognition worldwide. Those who still have descendants of these pigeons on their lofts hold gold in their hands... they are truly collector's items! PIPA is always searching for these exclusive pigeons to offer at auction. In this specific auction, you'll find a beautiful collection of these collector's items from famous lofts such as Mike Ganus, Luc De Laere, PIPA Elite Center, BDS Team Belgium, Peter Janssen, Tj. & J. Elzinga, Gustaaf Boeckmans, and Jos Maris.
