The American Friends of the Brunner Cropper Club is a specialty pigeon club devoted to the promotion and advancement of the Brunner Cropper in the USA.  More importantly we are a club that promotes friendship among brunner pouter breeders and anyone interested in the beautiful brunner cropper.


Thoughts from the Webmaster

This has been a wonderful year for brunner pouters. Our breed has enjoyed many nice shows across the country with lots of good fanciers promoting the breed. We continue to fill our site with articles and information on our breed. Hopefully this resource has been helpful to you. However, we also need your help. I would encourage anyone with pictures, articles, show results, or other pertinent information to contact me and I will work to get it included here. The quality of our site is measured by the richness of its content. Please share!

Thoughts from the President!

Hello Brunner Pouter enthusiasts!

We begin another breeding season full of hope and confidence that this year will be productive and will move our breeding goals forward. I have my birds paired and one pair already on eggs. With some luck and good fertility, in another couple of months there should be a good group of little blue white bars on the floor.

The National in Ontario was the best American pigeon show I have ever attended. We had a good group of both birds and fanciers and the future looks bright for the breed and club. We encourage everyone to become involved. We are in the process of determining club meets throughout the country as well as the National meet for the club. Make certain you communicate with your district director to ensure that we have meets in your area. I will be attending the Great Western, the Premier Show in Salt Lake City, the Pageant, and with some luck the National in Massachusetts. I will also attend the Leipzig show in Germany. There is bound to be some good Brunners at all of these shows, with the possible exception of the National. It is important that we have our breed displayed for all to see and the National is a great place to show off our breed. Anyone planning on attending and exhibiting at the National, let others know so we can generate some enthusiasm. The same holds true for other shows. Communicate with each other so we can get everyone involved. 

I am honored to serve as the president of the AFBCC and will do my best to see that the goals of the club are met. I'm not much on the telephone but I will answer emails. I look forward to the growth of the club and progress of the breed.
