    So about five years ago our family got out of pigeons due to a move and my lack of interest. Our old racing loft is now a show coop, and i decided that it could use a pair of Pigeons! They are just going to be for pets, i really want russian tumblers or german owl, but i will settle for what ever, i just emailed on some so im anxiously waiting for a response!

    Congrats hope you hear back positively! Always need more pigeon people. Are you sure you want to just keep one pair? They may get lonely:cool:Lol

    My Bantams are in the coop too. I hope to get a young male and female, their going to have a raised platform for their own food and nesting box. I have been wanting some for a while and when i saw the ad for russian tumblers on craigslist i was like, i have to email. We had two lofts at one point our racing loft and then we had our show/breeder loft, it had two parts, one side was birds that we used as breeders for our racers. The other side was our fancies. We were up over 100 birds and we would release our whites mostly for funerals. Go figure! Any ways we gave one our double coop away to some guy who was getting into birds and now im kicking myself since i got into chicks and pigeons again! lol When i was little i "had my own breed" lol and they were opsie babys, english tumblers x two bars, when i was little i decided that someday they were going to be champion racing birds. haha [​IMG]

    So today was the North East Poultry Congress and my Friend (Shay from byc) had some pigeons there, and sexed them for her and I knew as soon as I put my hands on them i knew i was coming home with some! SOO I got two english tumblers, I think they will make a nice pair. Not for showing or anything just for fun. But im not sure what their color variation is, and im not totally convinced that they are English Tumblers, but they do have bands, i didn't get a good look at them today, i will take pictures tomorrow and check out the bands.

    Edit: Sooo it's been such a long time since i have done pigeons, i forgot English have feathered feet, so these arn't english tumbles. Humm i will post pictures tomorrow to see what you guys think.

    Okay but the English Tumbler's website shows birds with feather legs?
