Breed and Gender?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm not sure if this is the right place to post this but I was wondering what breed and Gender my pigions are? I have four so far. The dark red (pictured). The light res (also pictured). The splash/black/white/blue (pictured). And a black one I couldn't really get a picture of. Thank you. smile.png iIMG][IMG][IMG][/IMG]

I have no idea on the breed but for gender just keep an eye on their behavior. Boys have very obvious courting behavior. They vocalize and head bob. They'll also strut after females and feed them just like the girl is a baby. New birds need time to relax and feel secure again before they'll get amorous though...so give them some time to settle in and then spend some time just watching them. :)

They look kinda young, but I would guess that picture 1 is a girl, pic 2 is a boy and pic 3 I can't tell. Just a guess on the first two though :)

17+ pigeons, about 20 coturnix quail, 10 chickens and 2 angora rabbits
