MIND ON FIRE NESTPAIR

 A VERY SWEET NESTPAIR DIRECT FROM OUR #1 FAVORITE PIGEON "MIND ON FIRE". ORDINARILY, WE DON'T OFFER NESTPAIRS. I THINK WE'VE OFFERED ONE SET IN 14 YEARS.  WE ARE MAKING THESE PUBLICLY AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME FOR ONE REASON ONLY.  AS A PET, 'MIND ON FIRE' LIVES IN THE LOFT OFFICE. HE WAS WITH HIS DAUGHTER LATE IN THE SEASON. I FORGOT TO PUT WOODEN EGGS UNDER THEM. SO, WE HAD THESE TWO AUGUST 28TH HATCHES. WE THREW AWAY MANY LATE EGGS DIRECTLY FROM 'IRON CLAD' [YES, HE'S BACK HERE BREEDING], SO, WE'RE NOT AFRAID TO CUT OFF OUR KEY BREEDERS WHEN AUGUST ROLLS AROUND.  BUT- THESE HATCHED AND SINCE 'MIND ON FIRE' LOVES HIS BABIES SO MUCH, I JUST COULDN'T ELIMINATE THEM. 

'MIND ON FIRE' HIMSELF WAS THE ONLY SEPTEMBER HATCH WE'VE EVER RAISED IN 50 YEARS.  WHEN 'IRON CLAD' AND 'CLOCKWORK BLUE' WERE IN THE OFFICE IN 2017, I BROKE UP THE PAIR LATE. I NOTICED CLOCKWORK LAID ON THE FLOOR OF HER HENS' SECTION. I TOOK THE EGGS AND PUT THEM UNDER A YOUNGBIRD PAIR THAT HAD A FEW FEATHERS GATHERED IN A CORNER OF THEIR SECTION. THEY HATCHED; AND, THEY RAISED THEM!

WHEN THE BABIES WERE WEANED, I PUT THEM DOWN THE ROAD AT OUR OTHER LOCATION. ONE MADE IT THROUGH THE WINTER: HE BECAME 'MIND ON FIRE.'!!  WHEN THE SPRING ROLLED AROUND, I HAD TOTALLY FORGOTTEN ABOUT THE LITTLE THING SINCE THE TIME HE WAS ABOUT 6 WEEKS OLD. I WALKED INTO A SECTION AND THIS BABY THAT HAD MOLTED THROUGH THE BRUTAL WINTER- LANDED ON ME AND STARTED BITING AND SLAPPING ME. [I'D BE MAD TOO]. NOW, HE'S MY #1 PIGEON FRIEND. 

 I DO NOT WANT TO SEE THIS LITTLE NESTPAIR HAVE TO STRUGGLE THROUGH AN ENCROACHING WINTER.  THAT'S THE ONLY REASON THEY'RE BEING MADE AVAILABLE. THEY REALLY NEED TO GO TO A WARMER CLIMATE- OR BE KEPT WELL-SHELTERED IF THEY ARE PURCHASED BY SOMEONE IN THE NORTH. 

THESE WOULD BE $1500 EACH IF SOLD SEPARATELY WHEN THEY MATURE A BIT.   THIS IS A SPECIAL MATING: THEIR DAM IS A DIRECT DAUGHTER OF 'MIND ON FIRE'- SHE WAS 1ST OVERALL ACE MAYBERRY ONE LOFT. SHE HAS THREE OTHER SIBLINGS THAT WERE ALSO ACES OF THEIR ONE-LOFT SERIES.

THESE BIRDS WILL SHIP FROM OUR FARMS IN WISCONSIN
