    Without getting into too much detail we took over after a passing of a relative.

    Is there any "swap" value for them. Im thinking of taking them to tomorrows norco meetup. And possibly swapping the younger ones.
    Are these common pigeons?

    take them... im' gonna take a pair of pigeons too... well, a pair of two males... lol...

    if they are pouters, i'd be interested... take an adult male so i can check him out and see how they're gonna grow...

    Males have bigger globes and puff them out more often. The white ones look like Pomeranian Pouters and the colored ones could be Ghents or mixes of Ghents. Or they could be Poms as well.

    nice meeting you today... after my friend came, we went back to look for them to see how much you wanted or what not, and you were gone... [​IMG]

    i actually wanted to see him coo and dance around, but the cock wasn't having it today... maybe the little one was a very young bro...????
