    Oh and also pigeon babies are born somewhat bald I guess. They aren't like chicken chicks...

    I have another question.. Can homing pigeons and OGO pigeons live together?

    Yes, just about all pigeon breeds can live together. But if you plan on breeding purebreeds don't mix them until all of the birds are paired, because they will cross breed if you dont

    My advise is to not allow them to breed if you keep all the breeds mixed up.

    When you want them to breed take out pairs of each breed and let them breed in large cages.

    If you allow your birds to cross breed you will end up with lots of 'mutts', that are usually not attractive and you won't be able to sell them as peple only want pure breeds.

    I am not planning to sell them, I do not pick animals out by looks. The animals here are more family then live stock.. Lol.

    I love my mutt pigeons, this is Cooper, a roller, homer, german owl (and probably some other breeds) mix. She is one of my sweetest pigeons.
