Hello everyone, my name is Boris. I am from Geelong in Australia. For only about a year now I have been keeping some Australian strains of rollers and recently bought some second generation Heiners which I have not flown yet. I have been reading this forum for a while now and only just figured out how to get over a few site hurdles to join the forum. I am a member of the Melbourne roller club of which Adrian Gasparini the world fly judge is a member of. I am looking forward to learning and contributing here. Regards Boris

With a handle such as Turmani you must be from the former USSR? LOL My wife is Ukranian, dad flew Russian breeds in Ukraina, Russia, and Germany.

What is your story Boris?

I am going to bet you are either Polish, Russian, or Ukranian...right? :-)

Rick, I am Russian/Serbian, born in Australia, survive on Russian culture which I find a little more peaceful than Serbian/Croation but love everyone. I had no idea how many beautiful breeds Russia and its neighbours had up until about a year ago. Neither did my wife Svetlana who is from Volgograd. I lived in Serbia for about 3 years as a child because my father abducted me from Australia after a bitter divorce. He had pigeons living in his attic. After I came back to Australia I snuck some pigeons into a box behind the shed at home and kept them for a few years. Now at 38 I have bought some for my kids at first and then got a little more serious with them myself after discovering the talented birmingham roller. I have kept highfliers, fantails, turkish tumblers and racers. Now I only keep birminghams, pure white racers and a couple of chooks. I find 'most' pigeon people to be a friendly, decent family orientated people. At the moment my daughter and I are trying to prepare a white racer for our and her first show in 6 weeks.

Ive had my birm's now since January. Very inexperienced I started with about 100 by collecting them from everywhere mostly as young squeakers. I have gone through a process of first eliminating the non kitters and early returns and most recently the ones that still dont roll. A few days ago I lost a few birds because a small bbq fire spooked them so now only have 23 out of 32 in one kit box and some breeders that I hope will prove themselves in the next generation. My young kit is consistently breaking but the birds are not deep at about 3-4 turns. My deeper birds are in the breeders pen now with my new 2nd generation Heiner Bijker Birds that have not flown yet. It is very difficult to buy super birds here even if in a club. My biggest hope and worry is that my kit gets deeper with age. Regards Boris

Boris,

My wife and daughters just returned from a 2 month trip to Ukraina and Russia. My wife was living in Norvogrod when I first met her. My friend Ken Easley married my wife's childhood friend about 15 years back while he was working in Siberia, I was introduced to my wife 10 years ago and we have been married for 8 years.

There are a lot of guys in Australia. Get in touch With Adrian Gasparini, he will put you in touch with the lads over there. His email address is, etts@bigpond.net.au

I also have contact information on guys who live in the following Australian cities.

Queensland
Victoria
Litle Bay
Mt Pleasand
New S. Wales

Let me know which is closest to you and I will put you in touch with them.

Above all, join the National Birmingham Roller Club, the largest roller club in the world. If someone gets a bird from me I make sure they join the NBRC.

Click on my name and you will find my contact info.

Hello again Rick, I know Adrian as we are in the same club. Even though I have been to a number of club flys I have not seen 'his' birds fly yet. Probably because he has been busy as the world fly judge. I am in the state of Victoria and near the state capital of Melbourne where I travel to to participate in the flys. Last Sunday I was a judges assistant/time keeper in the fly. The best birds I have seen so far belong to an Andrew Androutsos of Melbourne who does not sell his limited number of birds yet. Regards Boris
