    This handsome fellow has been the father of two squabs so far, one pretty much like himself and one silver dun. But what is he? An indigo grizzle?
  2. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    I find this pigeon very interesting in color, but what is it really? Attatched are some photos as a squab, before molting and 2 from late molt. I do not know yet if it is a cock or hen, but it behaves like a cock. I have had hens before acting like a cock, though... As you can see from the photo...

    Young racing hen, advertised as Opal. What do you think the genetics are? Edit: She is definitely indigo. Been so long since I've seen one I barely recognised it!

    This is one of my 2011 young Jacobin hens. I do not know if there is an official name for this colour, I have heard of it referred to as "Buckskin"?

    Hi, I bought a few modena's in strange colors. One is a bronze looking blackish pigeon. Modena bronze comes to mind. The other one is similar but silver looking instead of bronze. That last color reminds me of pure (not heterozygous) indigo andalusion, but also of pheasant pigeons or svaber...

    I recently bred a almost pure white racing homer (by accident - I was out of town for work, and my friend who was looking after the birds for me didn't notice the pair breeding on the ground, otherwise he would've put them on false eggs). The accident is the amount of white, that the hen was a...

    Here's Auburn. He has reddish markings but his head, flights, and tail are more bluish, and his tail has a band. What is his color/pattern called, and what causes it? He's definitely the most interesting color bird I have. Pics of Big Red and Little Red, both ash reds (but probably unrelated to...

    Here are some young birds I raised. What does everyone think they are? I finally figured out how to put pictures in my posts. (hurray!)

    Here's something I haven't seen before in my racers. I have a sex-linked pair that produced two red babies. They are velvets, like the dad, and red like the mom. BUT this guy looks awful dark! Mom doesn't look darker than normal and I can't really tell with dad. What kind(s) of modifiers do you...
  15. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    I've seen a lot of spread blue indigos, or Andalusians. I've seen a few pictures of the dilute of them too. But last night I was thinking...what would it look like if it were a different color spread with indigo? Like on lavenders and browns. Or even the dilutes of those. I've never seen the...

    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...

    Okay - don't know who to direct this to exactly. I'm starting to wonder around the site and I went to The Loft section tonight where the pics of the Show Birds are posted. Just want you to know that German Beauty Homer #3 is not a German Beauty, it's a Dragoon and it's an Indigo bar one from...
