In case pigeons are auctioned by AVIRINGS Auctions; the following should be done:

  • Prior to an internet or room auction, the pedigrees must be present at the offices of AVIRINGS by email or post. 
  •  When the pedigrees are approved, a date for sale is agreed upon with the seller. An appointment is then made to take pictures of the pigeons.
  • During the shooting, the pigeons are checked. The seller must supply a vaccination document. AVIRINGS Auctions refuse pigeons that have a poor build or health. After the pigeons have been inspected and photographed, they usually wait until the auction’s end in the AviRings loft capacities. 
  • The seller is asked to submit a fully completed list with ring numbers/gender/colour in order to avoid inaccuracies with regard to genders and the like.
  • Sellers are fully responsible for providing correct and complete information regarding the pigeons to be auctioned.  Should any damage arise due to incorrect or incomplete information provided by the seller, then the seller is fully liable for the damage that is or could be the result of this.
