THANK YOU Margaret, Your artical brings back memories of my childhood in New York City back some 60 years ago there were many lofts on the roof tops in the city and it seems that most of the bird were Flights. When they flew their birds there would be hunderds of birds in the air at one time most of these rooftop flyers would have 200 to 300 birds each, and they would be so close together that there would be 600 to 700 birds in the air at once truly a sight to see. Thank You so much. ...GEORGE

Thank you for teaching us novices about the Dom. Show Flight I have to agree with Renee and say they do have very long beaks
I also would have never guessed that they don't make good parents, it was all very informative.

Margaret, I had never heard of this breed until I joined the forum and now think they are one of the prettiest breeds there is. Their heads kinda remind me of the Runts. They look too like they are pretty large pigeons. Strange they make such poor parents though.

Your article was soooooo good and I learned a lot from it. Thank you so much for the time and effort to do this for us.

Well, I Just Gotta ..


remind everyone that I am Rosey's Great Grand Mom or God Mom or SOMETHING! Margaret's beautiful Rosey lived with me for about a month because he simply WOULD NOT WEAN and needed to be tube fed while being enticed to learn how to eat on his own. A very stubborn little bird, but in the end Rosey got the hang of it! I was sweating bullets for most of the entire month!

They are handsome birds and have endearing temperaments. They come w/both
long and short beaks, capped and crested. There are regional clubs that spin
off from the New York Combine Club in the southern and western areas of the country if a local contact is wanted. A good article Terri and Margaret, and nice to have the information in one place.

John,

I don't know the answer to your questions, but hopefully another member here will. If you don't see any replies in the next day or so, I would suggest you ask the questions again in the Show Pigeon Forum.

Terry
