"Anthony Buttigieg the Master of Young Bird Racing has successfully been flying a team of Premier Stud bloodlines for a number of years.
He has decided to sell all his birds except for Old Scrote who is12 years old and has not filled an egg for the last 4 years. Old Scrote will remain in the loft as a pet.
THIS IS NOT AN ENTIRE CLEARANCE SALE although every bird will be sold over 2 auctions with AJ Redstar.
Auction One – Entire National Winning Old Bird Race Team
Starts on the 12th September and Ends 22nd September from 1.00pm
Anthony has made the decision to sell his birds so that he can commit more time to supporting his talented son, Rhys, who is a member of Cardiff City Football ADC and also provide the necessary financial backing needed to help his son achieve his dream of becoming a Premiership player. Anthony is not giving up the sport. From 2020 I (Derek Nicholls) will be sending Anthony a team of young birds each March to be raced through the summer YB programme. These birds will be from the cream of my Premier Stud winning bloodlines. Those remaining will be sold on AJ Redstar Pigeon Auctions leaving an empty loft from September to March each year.
Anthony will not be flying Old Birds due to work commitments and to give him more time to help support and encourage his son in his football career. In the past 11 years Anthony has run one of the most successful lofts Wales has ever seen winning
