My name is Ammed Ismail and I started keeping pigeons when I was 15 years old. While in high school, my wood shop teacher Don Nelson introduced me to the sport of racing pigeons. At first, I thought the sport was a little unusual, but it quickly grew on me and I have been doing it ever since. 

I am now in my 40's, and in the years since, I have had many mentors in the pigeon sport, including the late Don Jones who was a well known and well respected member of the famous Fernando Valley Club (FVC). 

Don and I became friends when I was 15 years old, and we became partners for the Snowbird Classic from 1988 to 1993. Don, Micky Rhone, Rocky Lambert, Rusty Hemsath and Dan Lepre taught me a great deal about this sport and sadly, all of them have now passed away.

I now remain in close contact with three of the top fanciers in the sport Ed Lorenz, Dave Hunsicker, and Vic Miller, and here again I have learned a lot.

I met Vic Miller for the first time in 1991 at the Snowbird Classic when I raced two of his pigeons 91 IHC 2844 BB C "The Miller Cock" and his nestmate 91 IHC 2843 BC H. In 1992 I flew 92 IHC 2768 BB H "The Miller Hen".

In 1993, I again raced two hens from Vic (93 IHC 2647 BB H and 93 IHC 2648 BB H), and these two hen became the foundation of my family of Miller Pigeons. These two hens are direct daughters of the two famous Miller pigeons "Almost Perfect & Josey's Doll". The offspring from this amazing pair have flown extremely well at the middle and long distance races.

In the years since then, I have had the good fortune to aquire a number of the Miller pigeons either through online auctions or from Vic Miller himself. These pigeons have become a very important part of my breeding stock.
