Modena Discussion


We have had to have a change in plans for the Breed Of The Week for today. Instead of American Show Racers by George Simon, we have Modenas by Yellowking. Many thanks to Yellowking for this terrific article and pictures.

You can read about Modenas here: Modenas

modenas


I am glad I took the time to read you thread on modenas, a friend of mine has around ten of them and is always wanting to sell them to me for $10 each but sinch they would only be for pets I think I will stay with what I have, besides even if I decided to show them they are not of show stock. I have to say that your first picture had me saying what the H&%* he is playing games with me again LOL thanks for pointing out the differance, I am glad I read the whole thing before calling Him. They are prety birds and if they looked like the one in you middle picture I would have been sold and learn the hard way on breeding them. Well written >Kevin

Great article, Yellowking. I think the Modena is probably my favorite breed although I have never seen one in person. They remind me so much of the lovely Kings.

I keep hoping that we'll get one one day..........

Thanks guys for the comments. I hope all those grammatical sentences didn’t bother you guys. I have always had a soft side for modenas even though I am more focus on other breeds.

I feel really bad for my modenas as they sit and stare at their fellow cousins (my rollers) exercising in the sky. I know they want to fly, but they just can’t because of their weight, but they dream everynight of soaring like an eagle.

Anyways, you guys don’t have to call me “yellowking” you can just call me yellow. I used the username yellowking because my first favorite pet was a yellow king pigeon.lol.

My name is however, coincidently “Yellow” by the way.
