An American strain founded and secured right here in America by the Master himself, Morris Gordon. The Morris Gordon pigeons have a perch in the world history books for being the premier strain at the distance. A strain which has won the All American Award on five different occasions. Rarely, if ever, will one find the likes of birds such as Josephine (foundation hen) a seventeen (17) time winner 500 miles, or her grand-father, Morris’ famous #85, who bred sixteen (16) individual 600 mile day birds. Over the years, one will find in the record books, countless champion pigeons at the distance with race records unequalled to this day.
Black is beautiful. This line is known for its blacks and dark chequer combined with the Osman blood. They are known to perform best in long distance and hard races. It is suited well for distance or inclement weather conditions on race day.
Below are all straight Gordons. I was very fortunate in the last year (2017') to acquire some Gordons and was so impressed with them, that I now have a special breeding section set aside just for the Gordons. I am breeding mainly dark checks/velvets from this line. Many long time fanciers including myself have heard of the toughness of this family of birds, and I hope to continue the tradition. Typcally the Gordons are medium/smaller built birds, have an inate homing ability, and the desire to not give up coming home.
