    One of my pigeons out of kite and a black splash grouse legged hen, has a double feather. I have plucked the feather 3 times and it has grown back at a 30 degree angle from the tail each time.
    Here is the picture of the Pigeon I named him Two Tails

    I'll put a picture of the feather on soon

    And I used to have this ressesive yellow pigeon who was like a hen and a cock. I put the pigeon with a cock got nothing but wasn't that interested in hens and when people tried to sex it I almost always got the same result hen. I flew the pigeon and it didn't come back.
    Heres a picture Of Heart she was out of a ressisive red and tortishell hen.
