Pigeon Forum Broodstock

Our little crew of scientists, artists, eccentrics, and breeders is always doing something interesting-- crossing, putting in new colors, developing flying traits. As we begin the season here are few of our odd birds.

Jake's Bagdad (I may cross this bird on homers to improve its lost flying ability.)

His "Chinese owls", neither Chinese nor owls, which he will cross to stronger flyers.

Patrick's German beauty homer X homer crosses-- another attempt to improve function while retaining some showiness.

And Gary's (Andalusian blue" Catalonian tumbler, a color he introduced to the breed.)
