Cool

Yes the pushy ones and ones that try to push and fight the mate are the males- Males try to push and fight the mate back into the nest.

I think sometimes the females coo
#Tip-
If you see one of the mates kinda "twitch" their wing when they are angry, they are females- only females twitch.

How old are these pigeons ?

Good breed fantails are fairly easy to sex. The female will have its tail more inclined over the back, the males will have tails which are more upright.

Female fantails will generally be smaller compared to male fantails

Fantails are just beautiful birds to look at, and also comical to watch, BUT they cannot be let outside to "free fly". They are not good flyers and can't escape preditors. They can be housed outside in an aviary with proper housing to get out of the cold and wet weather.
I have "saddle" American Fantails. Your welcome to look thru my albums in my profile (click on screen name)
We just arrived home tonight unexpectedly w/ a pair of White fantail pigeons. I love your website...very nice and learned a lot about housing. We are raising Wyandotte Chickens and just fell in love w/ these pigeons (said I would never own a pigeon). Never say never....Thanks for sharing!

Thanks and welcome to PT.
Fantails are alot of fun! I started out with red and silver saddles. I got 3 new colors last year; a black, a dun and a blue check. Out of that I got 5 all white babies this year

the tumbler prolly wants to be with them , fantails if they don't feel the need ..pretty much stay on the ground.. unless something threatens them and then they try to get away..
