I have heard they are aggresive birds, and require more room then other birds.

Some of the heavier ones have a bit of a hard time moving their weight around, so I would not recommend wire floors. And I have some who are semi-aggressive and others who are perfect angels. They are really a funny pigeon and have this great stare they give you.

I would, I have had some and they are great, but they are heavy and push their weight around. It is not easy trying to band one of their babies look out!

Oh ok. I was looking for a "prisoner" (lol i love this term) breed pigeon that can breed just in an open type loft, without having to seperate pairs. Any other clues?

I would say a close breed to the modenas is a king. They make the best prisoners as far as I am concerned, and I have had experience keeping many different breeds as I get in all kinds. They have been bred for generations as caged birds (as meat birds) and are genetically more inclined to lounge around and be couch potatoes! They do not like to fly much (in general) as they are heavy and somewhat lazy, and are most content with a nice nest box and good grub. I've found that they are easier to tame than many other breeds due to their close contact with people.

They are not very aggressive--(I've only had one or two semi-bullies out of many, many kings that have gone through here over the years), and seem quick to learn that bullying is not okay (aka easily trained with a spray bottle). They are large and heavy and mostly come in snow white, but there are color variations and some mixed ones. The females have a very "pretty" face, almost feminine and very sweet. As they are so heavy and solid it is almost like having a small dog follow you about, and they can be very affectionate. Let's see, they feed their babies very well and you can keep them with each other as well as with many other breeds. Two of my kings (one is half) live in my "disabled/elderly" aviary and are angels to the other birds.

Best of all, (and you may already know this)if you can't locate any near you (be sure to check animal shelters, you would be surprised!), we have an abundance right now in the SF Bay Area and when weather is cool enough, I believe they're open to shipping. You would need to contact our member Elizabethy if interested. And these guys are all healthy and definitely in need of a safe, great home such as you are planning to provide! Good luck, I hope some of this helps.

I think i have found my perfect breed!!! Parlor Rollers/Tumblers. They are awesome looking and the rolls are amazing. and they don't fly at all so they make good prisoners. And i can excerise them often with there rolls because it is on the ground and not in the air. Much more controled!!!! YAYYYY!!!! What do you guys think??
