    Hello! I am looking for any giant runt pigeon breeders. So far I have only found Stromberg's in California. I work for a zoo and we would like to add this breed to our ambassador animal program.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    They are mean birds strong enough to draw blood pecking and bruise with wing slaps if show type. Kings, giant homers etc would be better suited for children trying to hold pet etc.

    This is my first post, so please excuse any mistakes. I am trying to answer ailurus in the request for Giant Runt Pigeons. I realize your post was in April, but I just found this by accident today. I am in Ohio and breed this beautiful bird in a variety of colors (all colors/patterns except red) If you are still looking for this breed, and are in the area, maybe I could help you. By the way, these birds are NOT aggressive (unless you try to put your hand in their nest box of course) and are lovely to look at and listen to.
