Chic Brooks of Hapyco Loft is 95 and has down sized his operation. This may be one of your last opportunities to obtain birds bred by this master breeder and icon of the sport. Included in the auction are 8 of his Bandit breeders along with two super kits of six Bandits each (no pedigrees on the kits – they are super birds hand picked from his Bandit pen, but Chic has no paperwork on them). Also in the auction are two grandsons of “Senna”, a grandson of the “La Verne Cock”, a De Klak cock whose 4 grandparents Chic bought at De Klak’s estate sale, two Art Hees birds and a pair of grandchildren of “The Deb Ray Cock”, one of the all time greatest breeders at Hapyco Loft.

Ed Minvielle of Jeanerette Louisiana will be bringing a few very select birds from lines that he has just brought into the country and some of his old proven blood. In the group will be one outstanding young cock direct out a super pair of DeRauw Sablon imports, an excellent young hen out of direct Jelle Roziers excellent breeders, a well bred Gevaert Van Schoorisse bird (very closely related to pigeons that are currently flying extremely well in California), a beautiful young cock out of one of the very best pairs of Zazueta Vernazza's that Ed is still breeding (this blood has been crossing great for Ed and has been winning top positions especially well at 300 miles and up), two outstanding birds from Ed's good friend Dean Ledet, out of Dean's excellent Kannibaal Van Loon family and a few select Gino Clicque youngsters direct out of Ed's recent imports. The Clicque birds will be very young, but all of the other birds will be breeding age.

Ed Minvielle, Dean Ledet and Bobby Devorsky from Siegel Pigeons have graciously agreed to drive all the way from Louisiana just for this event! They have to immediately turn around, drive all the way back to Louisiana and load up for an event in New York. Ed will bring pre-orders to the auction at No Charge for shipping.  Orders must be placed BY PHONE (1-800-437-4436) and pre-paid only. Since Ed will be leaving Louisiana for California around Wednesday November 10th, it will be imperative that all pre-orders be placed PRIOR to Wednesday November 10th. Ed will also have a small booth of his most popular products, like Ecol Tonic, Siegels Pigeon Power, Bath Salts, Drinkers, and most of the Australia Pigeon Company meds. The booth will be set up on Sunday morning, November, 14th, but because of a very hectic schedule Ed will need to depart the Ft.Sutter Club early afternoon Sunday, so please help Ed help you.  Place your orders NOW!  BE SURE TO TELL THE GIRL TAKING THE ORDER THAT ED IS TO DELIVER TO CALIFORNIA! This is the opportunity to order your vaccines, medications, vitamins, grit, All in One buckets, minerals and anything else you may desire from Siegels.

Bidders who can’t attend the auction but want to buy some great birds will be able to do so with the help of our proxy bidder. You can trust us with your bid. At many of our auctions, birds with proxy bids have been successfully purchased at much less than what bidders had approved as their top proxy price.  For any additional information on any of the birds contact Dave Shewmaker (916) 662-5339 or Ed Minvielle (337) 577-7232. Regarding proxy bids: call Dave Shewmaker at (916) 662-5339. Submit bids by Sat. November 13 at 9:00 p.m. Birds can be shipped to anywhere in the continental United States at cost (be aware of new higher Postal rates, but we will use smaller boxes to help mitigate this).

This truly is an event you do not want to miss.
