Feathered Feet - What Strain?



Sometimes I see feather footed pigeons in the wild and wonder if they are related to some fancy strain. Is this a naturally occuring recessive trait or does it indicate a fancy strain? If you just see a pigeon with feathered feet and no other unusual markings or features is there a way to identify it from the feathering?

Many thanks,

Daniel

hello Daniel,

I think usually if a feral pigeon has feathers on their feet it probably crossed with a domesticated, or fancy type of pigeon. Usually cross`s are groused, not full muffed. And is rare in feral pigeons. As far as what breed it is would be hard to say. There`s alot out there. Unless it was a pure fancy breed. Hope this help`s some. Pat

I've seen one in the park that is much more "groused" than I've ever seen in a feral pigeon. That's its only distinctive feature. It's not fully groused but the feathers easily cover the feet and ground beneath it. I think it's solid gray.
