    Gideon with Gully but want to know is it normal for the male to be so violent? She actually goes into his cage but gets chased out again and he seems to attack her when ever they are close. The only time he doesn't is when she's on me and he dances on my head. Is it because I'm there? I'm...

    Does anyone know what I'd get out of this pairing? From what I know the male is a ash red bar and the female is a blue check dilute. Also is this pairing sex-linked?
  5. Pigeon and Dove Genetics
    So I am somewhat new to pigeons (I've had them a bit under a year), but not new to birds/poultry in general. However, I am totally captivated both by the pigeon themselves and by the complicated, engrossing subject of pigeon genetics! I have a small group of rollers and I was wondering if I...

    Hi everybody, When two pigeons are pairing off originally, does the courtship display conclude with copulation, or does the first copulation happen after another ritual once the pair have been bonded as a result of the original courtship? I would appreciate any insight and I hope this makes...

    New egg 2 days after pairing I have a young hen that laid her first egg after only being paired for 2 days. Previously she had been in the hens section and had maybe paired off with another hen. Is it likely that the egg will be infertile and is a result of the cycle started by pairing with...

    I have a young 2011 black hen homer hen that is starting to act up and pair with my cock birds.
