Proxy Bidding, Also known as Commission Bidding is a concept in which the system automatically bids on your behalf up to the maximum bid amount that you have chosen (“Max Bid”).

Your leading bid will be placed from your max bid, at one increment above the competing bid, thus keeping you in the top position until your “Max Bid” is reached. The driver of the “Max Bid” is bids from other bidders.

This is simply to make the online auction process much easier and less time-consuming. Proxy Bid is the Maximum Bid and not the Current Bid.

This is a “Buy It Now” Sale for 6 Walkingshaw long distance pigeons from the lofts of Rob Anderson.

Walkingshaw

Possibly the greatest ever family of Irish National racing pigeons, they have scored winners into Ireland for nearly 100 years. Everyone that introduced Walkingshaw bloodlines into their loft has had success. Some notable Walkingshaw based birds for other fanciers are

HERMES the greatest ever Kings cup racer with 2 Hall of Fame awards and a Gold Medal – winner at 7 times in the prizes from the Kings cup in good weather and bad.

PORTAVOGIE LASS Millar Gold cup winner and the only bird home into Ireland from all organisations on the day from Dinard.

No fewer than 6 INFC Kings cup winners have been Walkingshaw based birds although neither Arthur or Billy managed to win the Kings cup, they had many notable results stretching back to 1930.

Rob Anderson himself has had many winners at all distances from these birds, including 1st West Section from Ypres with a pure bred Walkingshaw hen.

The Walkingshaw pigeons were originally based on Barker pigeons that could be traced back to Northrop Barker himself when Arthur raced in Workington Cumberland between 1905 and 1910. The most successful lines crossed into the family were the famous GALABANK blood from the late John Kirkpatrick. Wherever they obtained birds from, they abided by one very strict rule, they never bred from a bird unless it had flown successfully from France.

When I asked Rob about his Walkingshaw family this is what he told me “The crazy thing about the Walkingshaws is, my uncle Harry had the family of them for so long and I never even looked at them. It wasn’t until 2010 when he was moving house and the birds were housed at another lads loft, I was over to pick up some of my Van Reet stock birds. I said what’s those dark chq wf’s, reds and mealies in the aviaries. The lad gave me some to handle and well they were awesome birds in the hand and I ended up taking most of them back to Scotland. Dear knows why I had never looked at them all that time. Probably the name put me off, as we would always say Irish channel pigeons were old slow hard pigeons. Boy was I wrong, they won immediately for us here. Even won the 1st five sprint races in the club with Walkingshaws. They have won prizes for me and many others throughout Scotland and Ireland from Club to open National results from France.”

I have 2022 Young bird racing kits available now from my Walkingshaw stock birds. These breed my own racers so you will get from my very best Walkingshaw blood. My family is bred from those I inherited from my Uncle, plus from the good Ash hen from Duddy of Ballyclare dam of 5 x 1st open Section B NIPA, she herself was inbred to the great HERMES. I also have birds bred from a Daughter of PORTAVOGIE LASS that I owned. Finally birds from Edgar & Daughters, top class performance Walkingshaws. If you want hard day distance birds bred for purpose these are for you 110 years of genetics is seldom wrong.

Birds can be delivered throughout the UK or Ireland.

The birds are based in Scotland and are available for delivery over the next few weeks. Bred for Rob’s own race team which he unfortunately cannot race for a variety of reasons. His misfortune is to your benefit. Bred in the purple from one of the finest stock lofts in the UK where no expense is ever spared to acquire the best stock pigeons available.

Supplied pics are of some of the ancestral birds (closely bred) and of current stock birds at the lofts. The Kits will of their description, and so aimed at the distance you prefer, it may be possible to mix the kits somewhat – contact with the vendor will be arranged upon successful completion of the purchase.
