The purchaser will own that bird  and all its winnings. The breeder (not AIC) agrees to provide a pedigree to the new owner.

    NO ONE ELSE OFFERS YOU THIS!
    Our goal is to get your birds to the final race.

  • All correspondence concerning your team(s) needs to refer back to the bid number associated with each team. Each syndicate will have one person responsible for money and correspondence.

  • We are giving free perch fees for extra birds, so there will be no replacements accepted.

  • You are welcome by appointment to visit our loft and look inside at the birds.

  • Ties in the clock will be given the same position number and their winnings will be added together and split equally.

  • All races will stop 36 hours after release time. Any paying position not filled within 36 hours will be divided equally with all clocked birds.

  • Absolutely NO pooling on property
