 In 2015, McLaughlin Lofts through tireless work with the South African and American governments managed to ship pigeons to Million Dollar Pigeon Race. Our track record of excellent care of the export pigeons speaks for itself. McLaughlin Lofts certainly gives you the best chance of success! Ship pigeons to McLaughlin Lofts starting April 1st. The pigeons will be exported to South Africa from May 2016. Pigeons should shipped to my loft so they arrive 4 weeks before scheduled shipping date. 

One big advantage we have in Massachusetts is that May and June are cool months and ideal for receiving and exporting pigeons. Your pigeons will be well cared for during the entire process. As far as communication goes, I will keep you updated bi-weekly throughout the entire Million Dollar Race Season. 

I will contact you immediately with any race information and notify you of upcoming deadlines. I will o er race insight and give recognition to the top 3 lofts in each training and race result.
