This pair are my very first homing pigeons. I just want to know what colors they are. Can anyone help me?

http://i364.photobucket.com/albums/oo90/Amitesh26/Pigeons001.jpg is a Pied Sooty Blue Bar. A racer would probably call it a Blue Pencil splash for short.

I'm assuming the red bird is the hen of the pair? I don't see any flecks in the tail that would indicate it being a male.

Becky,
I cannot believe you are 15, I hope when I grow up I'm as smart as you!!! Of course my 16 year old daughter says that will never happen.

The red check looks like the cock bird

I would think the ash red is the cock and the blue is the hen from the looks of the birds. Ash red cocks that don't have black flecks are just homozygous ash reds, not split for blue. All their young will be ash reds.

The blue bar could be a very light check, hetero for checker. It is also possible that these are false checks from sooty as Becky says.
