    I know you are probably right about that being a dove. That being said I would have guessed that he was a white racing or homing pigeon the same as Portsidepoultry. He seems very large to be a dove and very muscular compared to the doves I have encountered. You definitely not letting your birds go hungry he is in marvelous condition.

    Some people call white pigeons doves. Like the fantail pigeons.. many people call them fantail doves.

    What ever anyone calls that lovely white bird you have... it is the same species as your other pigeons.. its just white colour.

    I think in America most people use the term doves for the small species.. such as ring neck doves and morning doves, diamond doves etc. Bigger birds are called pigeons.

    Its interesting that the ancestor of all our racing homing pigeons is called a rock DOVE. Not a rock pigeon. lol.

    Fanciers on the other hand would dispute scientific findings.

    My two homers are coming in the mail on Wednesday! I'm so excited! They are relatively young. One is a blue bar and the other is a red check.
