    They dont fly, or at least the ones I have seen. Maybe their are different types of tumbler pigeons. An older guy that owns a farm out in Berne. Was nice enough to show around him farm. he has camels, emus, rheas, mules, donkeys, chickens, exotic goats, pheasants, and tumbler pigeons. He gave ma a whole lesson on camels and tumbler pigeons. He told me that they are unable to fly and he got one, tossed it towards the ground and it just went tumbling away on the ground. i askd him why they tumbled and he said that it is bred into them.Very interesting birds.

    Joel is one of the best when it comes to polish. He doesn't just sell a bird--he educates as well. I owe most of what I know about them (which isn't nearly enough) to Joel and to Kathy Troxell.

    He was really nice.I would of talked to him longer, but I could tell he was very busy. If I buy any more polish I will buy from him.

    My crele hen died today. i am not sure what was wrong. i found her half dead. They are an older pair, but she didnt die of old age. i couldnt get her to eat or drink or even open her eyes. the roosters eyes were foamy. Not sure what is wrong with him. They were only exposed to each other and were in quarientene so my other chickens are okay.

    On a brighter not here are some pics of the lastest editions (and like always my pictures suck)
