One of my older "bonded" hens left her mate for a younger cock. And her previous mate went for a younger hen - So I guess anything can happen!
You can get offspring from American/Indian Fantails. They'll just be mixed.
I'm not sure but I would think the crest and muffs would be dominant traits. I have all American Fantails.

Pigeon Standard training?


Hello, I just received my very first American fantail pigeon.
It is white and I am unsure what gender it is.

http://img22.imageshack.us/img22/616...ownloadthe.jpg
here it is as im drying it after it's first bath.

The reason for my thread here is to ask how can I train him/her to stand in a "Standard" posture.
I have never trained a pigeon, only taught parrots to talk.

Any advice for a novice?
I would go to a pigeon show and ask someone there, however there wil be one in a couple months, id like to train it as soon as i can.

Thank you

Let me answer your question about training.

Fantails are not really trained to pose, this is an inherited trait that has been developed by pigeon fanciers over centuries. They may be acclimatized, conditioned and/or trained for showing, but they must come from the nest with certain qualities before they cn even be considered for showing.
Refer to the "Breed of the Week" for my article posted last October on Fantails.

The only training show pigeons need, is to be tame and comfortable in the show cage. You can tame them by feeding peanuts from your hand, and to get them used to small show cages, you'd just need to make one similar, and introduce it to them several times, or you could just keep them in individual cages all the time.

Indian Fantails


Do you think we can have a sticky of the standard for Indian Fantails? I am told the standards are different. I also like the pictures in the frillback section that shows faults so we know what to look for. Would be nice to see that here. Video of the proper walk for the fantail would be good also. Just some ideas, what do you think?

Here's some pictures from a breeder and Judge of them:

The second page of pictures is loaded with mosaics!


Also, you can go to the Indian Fantail Club of America, they have probably all the info you need on the standard.

I agree and joined the club, but the breed of the week here is becoming a wealth of information I thought that also could be added. Just an idea.

It's a great idea Do we have a BOTW for Indian Fantails, or just American/Standard ones? If not, I think it's time we get one!

Actual pictures of show quality birds does help me a lot more than drawn pictures of ideal ones. If I knew more about Indians I'd volunteer to do the page myself.

It must be an american since the indians looks diferently.
I know they sometimes have a mind of their own but since I only have one other pair the new one wonīt have that many to choose from. :-)
