RICHTER 'WEGGE'

 THIS YOUNG COCK IS MAGNIFICENT IN THE HAND! HE'S SMALLER THAN OUR AVERAGE BIRD BUT PERFECT SIZE FOR THE 'WEGGE'  PIGEONS; VERY BUOYANT, SUPER SLICK, TIGHT, VIGOROUS AND POSSESSES EXCELLENT MUSCLE.  SPORTS A VERY STRONG YELLOW EYE.

THIS BIRD WILL SHIP FROM

 

OUR FARM IN WISCONSIN 

 

 I STARTED DIGGING THROUGH SOME RESULTS LAST YEAR AND WAS REALLY SURPRISED TO SEE HOW MANY TIMES OUR 'WEGGE' [CALL THEM WHAT YOU MAY] BLOOD HAS PERFORMED WELL FOR CLIENTS.  WE HAD ONLY SOLD ABOUT 30 OF THESE IN 14 YEARS. AND, THEY SEEM TO HAVE MADE AN IMPACT ON MOST OF THE LOFTS THAT BRED AND COMPETED WITH THEM; THIS INCLUDING, A 643M. DAYBIRD [1ST], DENNIS DOYLE'S EXCELLENT 'WEGGE' RESULTS, A 380M. WINNER INTO 20MPH HEADWINDS, A 300M. WINNER BY 11 MINUTES, 2X TOP TEN OLR WINNER OKLAHOMA, A 2X TOP TEN OLR WINNER OREGON, 2ND PLACE FUTURITY WINNER INDIANA...ETC.

 

THIS LITTLE COCK IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES FROM THIS YEAR!  DO THE BUY-IT-NOW AND RECEIVE A 'WEGGE' HEN TO GO WITH HIM.

* EACH- OR MOST THE TIME WE POST A SO-CALLED 'WEGGE' PIGEON, I FEEL THE NEED TO OFFER THIS DISCLAIMER:

SOME PEOPLE SCOFF AT THE IDEA THAT, HERE IS SOME 'YAHOO' THAT THINKS HE ACTUALLY HAS 'WEGGE' PIGEONS. HONESTLY, I HAVE NO IDEA WHETHER THEY ARE 'WEGGES' OR NOT, OR EVEN CARRY ANY OF THE OLD BELIGIAN- KARL WEGGE BLOOD AT ALL! I EVEN SAW [FOR THE FIRST TIME ONLY WEEKS AGO] A DISCUSSION IN SOME CHAT-ROOM FROM 10 YEARS AGO ABOUT THE FOOLISHNESS OF SOMEONE CLAIMING TO HAVE 'WEGGES.'  THE PERSON SAID THAT AN INDIVIDUAL USING THE WEGGE NAME WAS NO DOUBT TRYING TO LIVE OFF OF THE GLORY OF THE OLD MASTER.  I ACTUALLY LAUGHED OUT LOUD UPON READING THIS-- BECAUSE-- NO DOUBT, THAT'S THE SUREST WAY TO MAKE A NAME FOR YOURSELF!! USING THE NAME OF A MAN THAT'S BEEN IN THE GRAVE FOR 120 YEARS!

ALL I KNOW IS, WE'VE CALLED THEM THAT FOR 45 YEARS. BEFORE THAT, BUTCH SHOOP, QUEST SYNDICATE & LEON RAWDON CALLED THEM 'WEGGES'; BEFORE THAT, THE PIEPERS OF MILWAUKEE CALLED THEM THAT; BEFORE THAT, RICHTER CALLED THEM 'WEGGES'.   AND, WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE DESCRIPTION OF THE WEGGES BY JULES GALLEZ, THIS FAMILY CARRIES THE TRAITS VIRTUALLY TO THE 'T'. THUS, IT IS EASIER TO REFER TO THEM AS 'WEGGES' THAN TO CALL THEM:

THE RICHTER-PIEPER-RAWDON-SHOOP-QUEST-NANEZ SO-CALLED WEGGE FAMILY...

OR TO GIVE THEM NO NAME AT ALL !
