    These are yellows, Can fly but not well, as you can see good show birds their legs, and feet have feather as long as wing feather or longer.

    Since when are pigeons any color but black???? And last time I checked, they didn't have muffs on their feet either. Are they actual pigeons, or are they chickens??

    Yep ,told my grandkids they could fly just by kicking their feet.

    Sad thing I will have to trim those long feathers, for them to breed.
