    Last year I acquired two really pretty Portuguese Tumblers, I know when I sign them up for a show it's easy to just put "Tortoiseshell" on their coop tag, but I'd love to know more of the genetics behind these birds, because Finally they have produced a squab! I'm only curious because at the...

    I have a 4 day old male squab that was born from one of my pairs. (a white old frill hen x bronze catalonian tumbler cock) I'm really curious what his feathers are going to look like and I was wondering if there was a way to tell, besides waiting for him to grow up? I used to think that grey...

    I'm researching pigeon genetics for a project (absolutely fascinating, btw -- I'd looked into budgies before, but pigeons have way more variability, probably because they're truly domesticated while budgies have just picked up a few color/feather mutations). Anyway, tangent aside -- I've been...

  8. Pigeons & Doves Wanted & For Sale
    I want to buy recessive red, recessive yellow, black self and kite racing homers in the future. Not right away. It would be really wonderful if I could talk to some fanciers that raise such birds... make friends, learn more about racing, etc. Then when I am ready to buy next year I know who to...

    how many doses of kite do you think this bird has? The bird is also some amount of dirty also, comparing the bird to a dirty blue bar of similar age i have i would say just heterozygous. Also is split for recessive red. I also want to know if you think the bird will molt more like the mother...

    Hi everyone, these are our two new lovey-dovey birds. Both have a heavy bronze. I was told that the second bird was a blue velvet with bronze, but I'm not sure about the first. Don't have a full body picture at the moment, but I could get one later. Any ideas as to what color babies we might get...

    AKA - Archangel bronze. Dominant, recessive, etc?
  13. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    So we know there are 8 types of bronze - Kite, Roller, Tippler, Brander, Modena, Lebanon, Toy stencil, and Archangel. BUT it can be hard to figure out which you have if you don't have reference pictures. Does anyone have/know of a place that has pictures of each? Obviously Modena and Archangel...

    Look at what I got. This is the most beautiful color pattern I got this year. All my breeders are Blue Check or Black T pattern. A couple young birds developed tanish feathers with out a strong pattern. Full tan feathers, odd balls grew out here and there. This bird is much lighter and has...

    Hi, I have a question... One of the pigeons recently gifted to me is a very interesting (to me) color. When I first saw him in low light he looked bronze on the upper body/wings. In better light it's much more of a purple color. I'd like to know what to call him in my breeding records...

    Hi all, Could anyone give me an opinion on the bronze of this bird? He has a normal tail (and I assume that means he is not an indigo), and is obviously t-pattern with a bronze of some kind. The bronze shows up on the shield and on the inside of his flights. His flights are mostly dark with a...

    Or at least to me. Here's one of my young birds. It's a nestmate to my only Andalusian. It's moulting, so part of the wing bars are missing. Looks to be a plain ole pied blue check with bronze, except its two center tail feathers. One of them is missing, but I'm glad the other is there so you...
