My passion for keeping pigeons goes back in the year 1975,
when I first kept tipplers. Our Local breeds of pigeons
are mainly flying breeds like tipplers, kabra, kuch paras
and other breeds flown in (Tukris) kits. Our other local
breeds are Indian fantails, shirazi (known as Lahores),
Mookee. Indian fantails and mookee are very rare and mostly
pigeon fanciers dont keep them and now days it is
difficult to find pure breeds.
Since 1975 I have kept different breeds of fancy pigeons,
which includes, fantails, pouters, homers, modena, king,
Chinese owls, Jacobins
. I am known to be the best breeders
of fantails, pouters and Jacobins
in my city.
The following imported breeds of pigeons are very popular
and commonly kept by the pigeon fanciers in Pakistan.
They are Fantails, Racing Homers, King, Modena, Trumpeter,
Chinese owls, different types of Pouters and croppers,
Tumblers, Montuban, Runts and Giant Hungarian Pigeon.
am also Founder member/ Ex-General Secretary of PAKISTAN
RACING AND SHOW PIGEONS ASSOCIATION. This is the first
organized club, which deals with fancy and racing homers..
The club holds the first ever pigeon show in the history
of Pakistan in 1998 in which I got 7 prizes. The second
show was held in March 2000, in which I got 2 prizes.
You can see the photos of both the shows. The club also
holds the first pigeon race in 1999.
I have also contributed articles on breeding different
kinds of pigeons, which were published in the pigeon magazines
of USA, Australia and Newzeland.
My favorite breeds of fancy pigeons are Fantails,
Indian fantails (American origin) pouters and Jacobins.
I have some 20 pairs of fantails and Indian fantails
(colors are white, black, red, golden, ribbon tail golden,
black tail, red tail, white tail red, white tail golden,
white tail black). In pouters I have Reverse wing pouter,
Saxon, Hana, Brunner and Pigmy. In Jacobins I have two
pairs in black and splash.
I am breeding pigeons for the last twenty years.
I think the best way of learning is to meet different
type of breeders, talk to them and how they breed pigeons.
I have also found that always buy good breeding stock
and always start with the young ones. The following techniques
of breeding pigeons are my own experiences, which I got
after breeding, fancy pigeons for more than 20 years.
The most important aspect of breeding any kind of bird,
you must have consistency and patience, if you are impatient
and inconsistent you cannot be a good breeder. Always
try to learn from the mistakes you commit in the past,
never repeat those. The sick pigeon should be attended
immediately; never try to check on the other day, I believe
the other day never comes as for as pigeons are concerned.
Try to keep as many pigeons as you can take care off.
I always get very good results with 10 pairs and never
the same with 100 pairs.
The main purpose of creating this website is to share
the knowledge with other pigeon fanciers
