Auction News

The Euro-USA Connection is proud to bring not just one, but two very special auctions to all of you fanciers. We are again teaming up with bestpigeons.com (formerly IDreamPigeons) for these two special events as they are a great team to work with. Just as we do on our website euro-usaconnection.com, there are NO additional quarantine fees/costs added on to the final sale price. We feel this is best way to do things and make it a much better experience for the bidders and BestPigeons (formerly IDreamPigeons) also supports us in this. We stand for quality pigeons and great communication, plus having a great buying experience is important to us. You will not have to wait for your birds to get out of quarantine or make the trip over from Europe or trying to track them down, these quality birds are already here in the USA and ready to make an impact in your loft. There will be videos of each bird being offered in the auctions. Plus, we will be putting out an online catalog for each auction so you can view the bird and its pedigree and get a little more information about them. Go to euro-usaconnection.com for contact information if you have any questions. See information and highlights about both auctions below, the Northern Lights Auction on October 30th and our Best of Europe 2nd Edition Auction will be held at the end of January.
