I just bought this pigeon at the Shawnee, OKlahoma show last week. I was very fascinated with the tiger striping in the wing shield area. Has anyone else ever seen this trait or know anything about it. The pigeon was entered in the show as a Turpentine Frill and is a cross between a Turbit and something else. If anyone else has a female expressing this trait I might be intersted in purchasing it if it is not to complicated or costly. I would like to develop this pattern to cover a larger portion of the body if possible. I have seen the pattern expressed on what I think are called spread black although it is hard to see unless you are looking for it. One of the spread blacks was some kind of Egyptian Swift and the other was a show homer I think and I also saw it on a Figurita. This is my first day on Pigeon Talk, I am classed as a squab! That really made me laugh when I saw that.
