If that is a "yellow helmet" in the last picture, it looks darker then my hen, Gracie, or it may be the light.

Here is the post with the pic...3rd picture:

Here is the picture I found that looks like her color, click on the pic to enlarge:

Seems like a different color, or maybe not...if that is a YELLOW helmet then Gracie is more BEIGE.

Risingstarfans,

Thank you. That was an excellent article on Helmets. I enjoyed it immensely. I'll be taking a closer look at these guys at the Pageant of Pigeons.

Sharp looking breed! Interesting comments about the inter-relationship between the helmet and the nun and about the loss of parenting capability with the focus on appearances. Thanks for sharing your knowledge!

Those spots don't disqualify the birds, what most breeders do is pluck the miscolored feathers out. It doesn't hurt the birds one bit, as they lose their feathers all the time, as long as it is just a couple feathers that we are talking about and you aren't making bald spots. Also be sure not to pluck feathers out of their rosettes as this tends to make them disappear, which will tend to have them judged towards the lower end of the class. As far as your helmet in the picture goes her color would have to fall into the category of red, but she leaves much to be desired as she is very light and doesn't have the same even color throughout the head and tail feathers. If there is a bar in her tail, then I would say that you could call her a silver and then her color would not be as bad. Still not what is desired, but as far as silvers go, there isn't many out there that are very good. I don't have pictures of my reds to show you, but they are a rich, deep red color through the length of the feathers. Most of my birds are out of top quality breeders who show their birds at all the big shows. I have been very lucky to get the help that I have gotten and the amount of knowledge that I have learned from them is greatly appreciated. I hope that this information helps and if you have other helmet questions, if I don't know the answers, I know alot of other breeders and I'm sure I can find the answer for you.

On the other hand,Gracie, the helmet that I got from Pete is about as perfect as I have seen. She has all the coloration where it should be and not any out of place. She is one looker, too bad she isn't banded.

These pictures of her are from the early days, she looks even better now. Anyone care to comment on her color, she is light brown color, but I' sure someone knows the correct name for her coloring?

Hi Greg! Welcome to Pigeon-Talk and thank you for your informative post. I don't have any good pictures of my one lone Helmet but will try to get some in the next few days. His "red" color is pretty vibrant, but he does have quite a few spots of color where they shouldn't be.

Terry

I want you to show to the Dutch Helm. This variety is bred as a highflier and also as a show-type.
