Does anyone have any tips for how to determine whether a white pigeon is a King or not? I know Kings are typically larger in size, but are there any other markers?

There's a white pigeon who comes to my window. He's either a King or just a large male white feral. He's very large compared to the squeakers, but I'm not sure how he'd compare to an adult feral cock. The reason he stands out to me is because he often comes to my window for his own personal handout just after the others have left. I don't necessarily think he's tame.

Thanks,
Jennifer

kings are not real great flyers from what I have heard, but you most likely will never know....or will just be guessing.

Can you get a picture of him in comparison to the other birds and post? Then we will have a better idea. The kings are often more "tugboat-y" and sturdier, but not always. He could be a cross too. Pics!!!:D
