What are some good Homer types to enter in shows? And wich ones are not the best to enter?
Hi CHUCK, There only 4 patterns geneticly they are, BARLESS, BAR, CHECK,and T-CHECK. Things like grizzle,spread,indigo,bronze,dirty and others are modifiers that effect color and or pattern. Now when showing homers the most inportant thing is , does the bird look and feel like a race bird the only time that color is considered is in the color class, the true winner over all will be a bird that the judge feels has the body and muscle of a racer and color is not as inportant as some people think.GEORGEWhat are some good Homer types to enter in shows?

get a new cat litter pan and put the water in it, they will use it eventually, and one day when they see you coming with it, you won't beable to keep them out of it, it just needs to be introduced to them if they have never bathed before, that is one thing a pigeon does love is a bath, but on their own terms. unless you have a lice problem then you may need to dip them in something. just keep doing it and they will come around. you need to pick it up and dump it after a few hours as they may poop in it and you don't want them to drink poopie water.My pigeons usually don't take baths, and when they do not all of them will. Would it be alright if I just splashed some water on them or something?
I would take care of the lice first ASAP, before you worry about anything else, the care and health of your birds in really the most important thing.Yes, I do have a lice problem. I'll try dunking them sometime, do you know how I could get my birds in shape? Should I try taking them on flights more often?
CHUCK, Healthy birds love to take baths, SICK BIRDS do not like to take baths. If your birds are full of lice and they are dirty you will not be aloud to show them.Buy some pans that are 3inches deep put water in them and let the birds do their thing,like I said healthy HEALTHY birds love to take baths.
