    Anyone else raising these? I've become completely mesmorized by them since seeing them at the show this weekend. I can't google enough information on them.... Arent they just elegant looking?

    Not immediately, but hopefully one day! I've always thought of pigeons as those nuisance birds in the park. I had NO IDEA there were so many ornamental varieties. I love the Jacobins too!

    I did too! I still can't believe how many breeds are out there...Since last year, I'm already up to 5 breeds!

    Quote:I've never seen these ones before thank you for bringing them to my attention! I am a new fan! I've only raised parlor rollers before and rescued 2 racers, and even had a wild one...no major fancies though like those pretties!
