Rostov Tumblers, looking for info


Ok, here we go again.
I received 3 Rostov Tumblers. I have looked at the standard, doesnt help me. I have one that is brown & white that zitters his neck, one that is yellow & white & one that is yellow & white with a shell crest. I would be interested in talking to anyone on this group that has these that I can send pics to. Im interested in knowing what the quality of these is. Ive found very few pics & the only website I can find is the same one I use for my Kazans, it gives some pics, a mild description of what they are & what the old standard was at one time. Thanks! Kim

Thanks for info


Thanks everyone for the info on the Rostovs. I have seen most of the webpages already by doing searches but a few were very helpful. I have been contacted by a few breeders here in the US that have bred & showed them for 20+ years so Im waiting for a reply & will email them pics & also post them on here. Agian, thanks.Kim

Rostovs


Hi Thumpersalley,

I read your posting and found it interesting that you described your Rostovs as having white on them. I was under the impression that a Rostov could be crested, but could not have any white on them. I have been in communication with a breeder of Rostovs in Saudi Arabia. He sent me pictures of the Rostovs he is breeding. They are excellent quality Rostovs and I printed one of the pictures and took it to a pigeon show to show the judge. He was very impressed. We have one Rostov in our loft, a cock. We may decide to start breeding them, but I want to know more about the standard also before doing so. Too, it is very hard to find birds for breeding; this breed is so very rare in this country, even more rare than Kazan Tumblers.

RE Rostovs


The Rostovs I have are yellow & white, red & dark red & white. They zitter & are really Rostovs from a breeder in PA. They can come in any color & white but they must display the zitter & proper conformation or they are worthless. I have Kazans & prefer them much more. I also have Shaksharli, Syrian Coops, Dewlap Earrings & Egyptian Swifts. All fun birds. Kim
