Finding Pigeons Online In Michigan
The following websites can help you quickly and easily find pigeons being sold locally. The sites are excellent resources that are regularly used by a lot of people. However, as you never know who the sellers are and how trustworthy they are, it is important to always be diligent when using these classified ad sites.
The websites listed below are well-known and trustworthy but it is always important to approach potential deals with caution.
BirdsNow Michigan is a classified ads website specific to the buying and selling of birds.
A quick search for pigeons in Michigan showed lots of recent adverts for a range of pigeons including homing pigeons, racing pigeons, rollers, and fantails.
Hoobly Michigan is also used by pigeon owners and often has a selection of adverts.
We found multiple pigeon adverts posted in Michigan in the last couple of days including ads for Armenian Blacktail Tumblers, Pakistani High Flyers, Fantails, Parlor Rollers, and Zitterhalls (Shakers).
There are some users who post a variety of pigeons and on Hoobly you can view all the listings from each user so it is easy to see which users are potentially breeders or hobbyists.
Often with Craigslist there are some other products that show up on searches (like books and artwork) but the majority of the adverts we saw were for pigeons. The ads clearly display the picture, price, location, and when the post was published.
We generally find that listings on Craigslist are not as informative as ones on other sites such as BirdsNow.
Particularly when it comes to the information about the individual birds, but a chat with the seller will provide all the additional information needed before making a purchase.
