I haven't had pigeons for almost 40 years.

This beauty showed up and adopted us a few days ago and I need to know if it is male or female. My gut says female with the small head and feet but I'm not sure. - Thanks

I saved this video on sexing pigeons, can't say yet from experience if his ideas are correct but interesting FWIW:D

Thank you for sharing what he says make sense.

I think you bird in question is ♂ because his neck seems very iridescent and also he appears a bit larger than average.

If it lays an egg it is female that is one thing I will guarantee.

Mistakes can be made no matter which method you choose to sex your pigeons.
I find the best way to sex a bird it to ask another pigeon.
Check out the link the pigeon bowing and circling is the bird walking is ♀:

This bird is just a bit larger than a dove.
