    Was at a sale tonight and bought a pair of Frill-back pigeons and a pair of Ring-neck doves.Their was also some pigeons there that somebody called Angel Arkwings.But i did a search on here and nothing came up for them.They have a crest on their head,black wings,and a copperish brown body.Really thought they were pretty.Anybody have any info on this breed or raise them?
    And pictures would be great too,Thanks

    They really are a gorgeous bird. I love the pronounced color difference from the back to the breast...


    Where was this show you went to?

    Yeah,i love the color contrasts on them also.Its not really a show.Its a livestock sale that is held every wednesday night,not far from Dover,De.They sell LOTS ofchickens,pigeons,doves,guineas,etc.There are a few pigeon breeders that sell there occasionally.Anyway,i didnt get the ones i saw there,but got the breeders number and im gettn a pair of them from him next week.

    Archangels are so pretty. I've always wanted some. I especially like the gold blackwings and gold blue wings.

    Archangels are pretty easy to raise too. I had them in black wing bronze and white wing bronze at one time. Between them and my Fantails there was always a nest with squabs in it.

    For individual pairings,i was wondering what was an adequate sized cage would be.I have a cage that is 32" long,30" tall,and 24" deep.Would this cage work for a pair of pigeons,like a pair of Archangels?
