    Some sort of Rock Pigeon. I know nothing about pigeons, so I googled pigeon images. Appears to be a few varieties. The bill is the giveaway.

    all domesticated pigeons are decended from the rock dove, so technecally you right. There are over 200 breeds of pigeon in the US.what i meant though is what breed or mix of breeds these may be, or if they are a new project im curious who is breeding them. Just thought id post here to see if anyone knew any info on them :)

    I am pretty sure they are not a recognised breed of fancy pigeon. I think they must belong to someone who is trying to create a new breed.

    The body shape and coloration resemble a Gimple or Archangel pigeon.

    The head shape is rather like an Antwerp Smerl or short faced tumbler breed.

    I suspect he has crossed several breeds to get this result. The crest is very nice looking. It would be nice to see this develop into a popular breed.
