    I am in Australia, and I'm not sure if you guys call them the same thing, I have a pair and they are my fav breed of pigeon.

    Maybe they are called something else? Show racers? Just after a bit of advice about breeding them, I have bred Fantails, rollers, modena's etc, but this breed are different? Had them for 6 months before she laid, then when she did the shell was quite thin and it broke..... she laid again and it was infertile??? So I got a fertile egg from the breeder and put it under! It is chipping the shell and should be out tomorrow.

    They're called American Show Racers here. I have a pair and will be picking up a few more at a show next month.

    Yes, American Show Racers. I'm more of a fan of the show type racing homers.
