Thanks for the replies. I put ID bands on after I bought them. The person was selling them for someone else and did not know much about them. Their graceful lines caught my eye. I think you may be correct in that they may carry some roller blood. I have them in a large, outdoor breeder pen, which is more than adequate for housing one pair of pigeons, they were standing in a corner.
what is you plan for having mix breed pigeons? I wonder if let out if they have enough homer in them they would go back home..or be able to settle in like a roller.. I guess it is a risk if you want to fly them..they may fly great .
I think I will breed them and see if their offspring have the same physical characteristics they do. I bought a second cock that was with them, he looks almost identical to the blue bar cock in the picture. I may cross him on a hen from these two. I don't think I'll try to fly them until I have some young birds out of them.
