3 years ago I caught 2 pairs of wild barred rock pigeons in Lincoln city at the Oregon coast they have been breeding very well since I caught them the last 2 times they had chicks the their feet had a few feathers here and there but this time one of the chicks had full muffs and neither of the parents have any feathers on their fingers/feet.

I keep my rock pigeons in different loft than my fancy pigeons so there is no way they bred with any of my muffed pigeons.

I guess I just thought that if would take a few generation of breeding pigeons with feathers on their feet to get full muffs....

Does this happen often?

Cute maybe they are getting cold up there in Oregon so they are growing muffs to keep their feet warm
