For over 45 years, Planet Brothers, founded by John and Gary Squibb, have provided the world with outstanding pigeons from their Van Loon, Janssen and Alien families.
Over the next few years, the air of secrecy that has surrounded them will slowly be revealed , providing the sport with a unique insight into the methods and the hard work that helped make our birds, truly fantastic.
Month by month the website will provide a wealth of information that we hope will transform the way we look at this wonderful sport of pigeon racing, and with your support, this site will hopefully grow to a standard that all the others will be judged upon.
Through pigeon auctions and pigeon sales, new champions will be bred, following in the footsteps of Scrumpy, Sure Return, One Four, Hitman, Exterminator and the 1000’s of winners that have come from Planet Lofts.
You wont find many links or very much advertising from others, just the Planet Brothers way of doing things.
Either way, the sceptics will be silenced, the truth will be told, and our birds will go on to create new records and exceptional results.
The name of Planet Brothers needs to sit firmly at the top of the pigeon pedestal, it would be a fitting legacy to my father John Squibb, who in my opinion, was one of the greatest pigeon fanciers that ever lived.
‘The term legend is not one that you bestow upon yourself, but one that is given to you by others’.
