Building powerful websites with intuitive and rich user interfaces has been a passion of mine for almost two decades. I believe that no niche is too small to deserve valuable web services. To that end I am always looking to improve existing services or add new ones where they are needed.
PigeonID.com was built from a desire to address a very real problem. As we build our family of pigeons, through careful breeding and selection, undoubtedly there will be that one slip up that causes one of your valued birds to get by you and into the great unknown. Hopefully that pigeon was banded with your personal band, making it easier to find. But the likely reality is that you bought the pigeon as a full grown bird and there is nothing on it's bands that will ever help the person finding it locate you. Often we import very expensive birds, and have no means of linking that pigeon to our personal contact information.
With PigeonID.com Bands, a simple 4-5 digit code is all that you need to link the pigeon back to you, and your most current contact information. You can even offer a reward if found! Nothing could be simpler. Since our bands simply contain our website address and the unique code, tracking them is very simple. We offer you a complimentary free account where you will have access to all of your activated bands and their information. You can even associate a pigeon image to the band, and any other information you deem important about that pigeon.
Two Passions Meet
Software development has always been a passion of mine ever since jumping into it in 1991. I have developed in multiple languages, for multiple platforms, and all with great care to implement the best solution imaginable. I also have a passion for breeding and flying pigeons. I have raised Birmingham Roller Pigeons since I was 12. I have since also added racing homers to my loft and am loving the sport thoroughly. There's no wonder why when two powerful passions as these converge, the result is a set of well designed tools to help manage and better enjoy the hobbies.
The first tool I developed was RollerDB.com. Starting with a small user base in 2010, this site has quickly grown to become the de facto management software for the hobby. After noting it's success, I deployed PigeonDB.com for the racing pigeon community. It has been received with great applause, much to our liking. We continually update and improve these sites. Our users have been tremendously helpful in refining this process, as we encourage them to suggest improvements.
