Hello. I have seen Armenian tumbling highflyers that look like crested helmets with colored tails. I used to have helmets, unfortunatley they were the ornamental type. Maybe you can find mixbreeds that look like homers. Some Persian highflyers have short legs like the helmets. How many you want, you want them shipped, and are you thinking of sending them out for long distance training? Thanks.

You need to study all about the different kinds of Pigeons that are available.
There are many different kinds, for many different reasons.
Check out the N.P.A.
Don't just buy Pigeons for your son, Teach him all you can, about all kinds of Pigeons, then, if he is still interested, let him choose.
Before you purchase, it would be a good idea to maybe learn ALL that you can about building a loft to house them. :D

really?, you described what you want IS HOMER PIGEONS... fancy birds usually are not flown like the performance breeds are which are homers.. and tumbler, high flyers...pick one of those.

NPA is national pigeon association.
