Hello Pigeon Depot Family,

In an effort to offer reasonable shipping to both the buyer and seller effective 27-Jan-2020 I am changing Pigeon Depot's shipping fees.  The new shipping charges are 1st bird $60, 2nd bird $10, 3rd bird $10, 4th bird $10, 5th bird starts over at $60 and so on

Pigeon Depot strives to be the best pigeon auction by offering the best rates for selling pigeons.  Our rates are 10% commission for $499 and under, 7% for $500+, and I do not charge listing fees.  This leaves 90% to 93% profit with the seller.      

If you have any questions, concerns or would like to post your own pigeons on auction please contact Luke at pigeondepot@gmail.com thank you, hope you all have a great year.

SHIPPING ALERT!
 
Many members have notified the AU that they have encountered much higher shipping rates with the United States Postal Service (USPS).
 
Similar to United Parcel Service or Federal Express, the USPS now is factoring in dimensions of the shipping containers when pricing a shipment. 
 
We have reached out to other organizations and hobbyist groups that ship live animals and it is impacting all.
 
Previously, the AU aligned with Bird Shippers of America when dealing with shipping difficulties with the USPS. A united effort was better received and worked to our advantage.
 
We are in the process of working with our lobbyist to reach out to officials within the USPS to begin dialog of a possible mutually beneficial compromise. However, as stated above, the USPS is following what the private sector has been doing for some time.
 
Another possibility is the development of new shipping containers, which might fall within certain dimensional parameters to sustain lower shipping costs. Again, these are just a couple of approaches we are considering.
 
Be assured that the AU did not impose this on members, we only recently found out as did our members, and we are trying to affect positive change. 
 
For those using social media to criticize the very organization and employees trying to assist you, the result of your efforts is a negative presentation of the sport. The very organizations we are and will attempt to work with also view social media. When they see what appears to be childish behavior, they are less inclined to take us seriously and give us consideration.
 
We appreciate your patience and input and will provide updates as we can.

Hello all,
I hope the summer is treating you all well. I wanted to take the time to say thank you to everyone that has offered support to Shane's family and myself. It has been a difficult time but with your encouraging words we all will triumph. 

We are running the last couple donation birds for Shane's Funeral Fundraiser. Because of all of your efforts and generosity we have raised nearly $4000.00 (once everyone is paid up) to help ease the financial grief of Shane's Family. This is a warm spot in my heart. It proves that even through all of the competition with each other, we are all still a tight knit family of fanciers. Words cannot describe how thankful I am for everyone's participation. 

This week we have a group of fantastic birds. It always makes me proud to see the high quality birds that we are listing these days compared to when we first started. We have come a long ways and our quality of birds has shown that.
