The Seraphim (Pigeon) Club International
The Seraphim Club International was established in 1995 by Anya (Anne) Ellis in honor of the recognition by the National Pigeon Association of the Seraphim, a breed of Fancy Show Pigeon painstakingly developed in Anya’s loft over a period of nearly ten years. The genetic mutations that led to the creation of this breathtakingly beautiful bird were first identified in the offspring of a pair of Old Oriental Frills in Anya’s loft in 1986, then consolidated and refined into the regal and dignified Seraph, the angel of the Fancy Pigeon World we know today.
Adult Seraphim have an elegant and statuesque appearance, round head held high with needle-point peak, short pink beak turned slightly downward, chest held high with tuxedo frill prominently displayed, slender body tapering gracefully into long flights and tail with a smooth body contour, the tail just barely gracing the ground behind perfect delicately feathered legs and toes. The white of the adult Seraph is as brilliant, glowing, and pure as one would expect; white as snow, in fact; blinding in sunlight. The eyes – large, knowing, and nearly black – are the crowning touch assigning an innocent, pure, and child-like aura to this exquisite glowing creature.
The Mission of The Seraphim Club International is to be an encyclopedic source of factual information about the Seraphim Pigeon. Secondarily, but perhaps more importantly, it intends to bring together people of all backgrounds and experience who bear an interest in the Seraphim and its proper culture and breeding – a place to share knowledge and experience, if you will, and to promote the keeping of Seraphim in aviculture while adhering to the most advanced breeding methodology to create high quality Seraphim that conform to the expected breed characteristics.
The Seraphim Club International welcomes all Seraphim fanciers who adhere to the high standards of care, breeding, and maintenance espoused by The Club. Membership and access to the site are thus free. Contact information for breeders is located in the sidebar categories of “Sales.” Contact me, David Coster, at firstname.lastname@example.org to have your contact information posted if you have quality Seraphim for sale. All helpful comments, questions, and observations about specific topics can be posted in the “comments” section following each article on the site; these will be edited and published for the benefit of all.
This digital site will grow over time, so don’t hesitate to contact me if you don’t see what you need immediately.
