Hi, I'm really interseted in selective breeding and puting my birds in shows. Could somebody show me the basics?
a bluebar is not a breed just a pattern, the hen is mixed in color or a mixed breed of pigeon, sounds like you got two homing pigeons if you were set up with racers.I have a pure bred male bluebar and mixed female, between a bluecheck and a grizzle, with a white head and flights that I'm planning to try to breed. I don't have any of the fancy breeds, I was set up with racers.
your pair of homers are very nice, I do think a flock is more than two, which is a pair.Yes, I'm pretty sure that's it. I have some pics of them in my album. But do you need a certain type of pigeon, like the chinese owls, and the short-faces I think their called, to get into the shows and stuff?
Hi CHUCK, where in CALIFORNIA do you live, and that shows are you intrested in? If you live in the southern California and close to SAN DIEGO there will be a meeting of the METRO club this Saturday Aug.1, and I could meet you there and we could talk it over. In any event you can show homers in the homer class.On Aug.8 I also will be at a meeting of the AMERICAN SHOW RACER CLUB up in Riverside which is another place that we could meet.I hope you live nearby and can make one of these meetings.
