Hi CHRISTOPHER, Yes the Damascene is a rare breed in the pigeon world.The RARE BREEDS PIGEON CLUB has a list of 311 rare pigeon breeds,there are only about 120 of these breeds being bred in the USA at this time so you can see we are fighting a losing battle to preserve these fine pigeon breeds.So come and join us in trying to save as many of these rare breeds as we can.You can join us by going to Link (newday) at kyhipa@comcast.net .GEORGE

Not On The List


Hi Maggie, The dragoon is not on the list of rare birds there seems to be quite a few people breeding them across the country.The picture that you posted looks to be smallish for dragoon do you have a later picture? Dragoons as a rule are bigger then a race bird. .GEORGE

George, thank you. This is a really big pigeon - not fat but tall and long - looks kinda like a chicken. Has a really long neck too. I just took this picture of him. He is still too skittish to take out of cage and he is still under "quarantine" but I hope you can tell more about him. The back of his neck is bare which makes me wonder if it is a hen and has been chased by the cock.

Carrier


MAGGIE, Well I am glad that I asked you for another picture.After looking at this last picture I am sure that its not a dragoon but is a carrrier the walnut size of the wattle the long slender body,and the well developed eye cere these are all Carrier traits The wattle on a dragoon is not that large. .GEORGE

George, thank you! I "googled" carriers and you are absolutely right. Lucas looks just like the english carriers on the different sites. Looks like the dragoon is a little "chunkier" than our guy. He is a lean, mean machine. He is mellowing a bit but still needs some more TLC.
