what Keith has said is what you will get. you can pair them just so they have a mate, but you do not have to let any babies hatch... just use your fake eggs. or let some hatch, but remember you will have to be responsible for them for the 15 or perhaps 20 something years they may live, as not many are going to want mixed breeds... then who will you mate up with them when the time comes?, you most likely will not want to keep breeding mixed breeds, so they will be always extra in the loft with out much use. But Im sure they can have quailities you find interesting, for awhile anyway.You would get mixed breed babies, that couldn't fly as well as a Tippler and that were smaller and lighter than a Modena.
They would most likely have less resale value than either parent, if you wanted to sell them, but as long as you are happy with them it really won't matter.
so i paired them up in the aviary i used for my budgies, (not anymore) and perfecto! piples (cock), cooed and cooed, and then zaa-zaa (hen) took an interest and right now they are snuggled up in the nest box, zaa-zaa keeps preening piples, so cute! tomorrow i will put the pine leaves in so that they can start building their nest.
by the way, this has nothing to do with this post, but with your birds, does the cock, the hen, or both of them make the nests, because from what ive noticed, it depends on the individuals, sometimes they both want to make a nest and some times one of them just looks on as the other does it all. what is your experience?
oh yes, spirit wings,
i hve plenty of friends that will take the mixed breeds hapily, i wil most probably keep them tough .
i will have them in with my rescue feral pigeons. and it will probably be the last time i do this, cause its a waste of time if i'm not going to sel them,just wondering what is point of doing this.? and what kind of breed or mix breed will you use to pair up with the birds you want to let hatch? will you just keep breeding mutt pigeons?
oh, ok. then have fun. and take care of those young'ins. they can find mates with your ferals, which would be nice and just use your fake eggs..i will have them in with my rescue feral pigeons. and it will probably be the last time i do this, cause its a waste of time if i'm not going to sel them,
its just for fun.
