    HI Josh,
    I raise picas witch are a breed of spainish theif pouters. They are a great breed of pouters.I dont have bruners but would love to have some one day.One thing about all pouters is you cant leave there feed in their pen all the time.They will get sour crop. I leave the food in their pen for 15 to 20 minutes and then take it out.

    Do you know any other Texans that might have pouters ?

    Okay heres a quick question my pair is mostly white,

    The male is all white but the female is white with slight red splashes through out her.

    They ended up having 2 babies 1 is a mostly black baby, its about 1 month old and flying around with the rest of my pigeons.

    any ideas on why I ended up with a black Pouter, from white parents ???

    the other is white like the parents ?

    Quote:Because recessive white covers up the color that is underneath. So your male could be black genetically but because he is recessive white, it covers it up [​IMG]
