Keep us posted when you hatch those chicks and let us know if the tail feathering is an anomaly or hereditary

I sure will.
You're right I've decided that when I go s one I really like I'm going to say that I don't like it and the predators will leave it alone.

It seems that the ones that I've said that I liked and wanted to use for breeding that's the ones that they always get.

That tends to happen to me too with my chickens, luckily my favorite pigeons haven't.

17 pigeons, 15 coturnix quail, 2 roos, 6 hens. Also 5 drakes, a CCL roo that thinks he's a drake, a fat bearded dragon and 2 angora rabbits.

 

Current projects are Cinnamon Legbars (chocolate gold), chocolate/brown pigeons and silver/brown coturnix quail. My next project is a dark chocolate colored chicken with deep red/gold base that lays bright green eggs. Yes, I like the color brown.
