I have 7 birmingham rollers pigeons and a fantail mix. I know the colors of 5 of the rollers, they were given to me by a local breeder (creeksidelofts). However, I don't know the color the 2 that I had already? Any ideas?

Then I have a few pictures of the pigeons Tony gave to me. The first is a qualmond hen, I think this one is very pretty:

Next is a red mottle hen, another very pretty bird:

Then I have 3 reduced, 2 cocks and 1 hen. I believe this is one of the cocks:

And I think this is the hen:

Then is my pair consisting of a crested white hen and a blonde male. I was mostly interested in showing the hen's crest, so all I have of the boy is part of his head

Next up is my pen of "Idon'tknowwhat's". I know there are 2 males for sure in this pen, an orange and a blond. There is also 1 blond ivory and 2 blond pieds. I believe all but one of the birds in this pen are male (1 of the pieds being female I think).

Not the greatest pics of that group, but they are young so still pretty skittish.

Finally is a pic of my fantail mix cock. He recently lost his mate and is looking for a new home if anyone is interested

So there you have it, everyone is always asking for pics, so I thought I'd post mine

The first one looks almost black in-person, when Tony was here he said it was 'different' but didn't know right off what color it was.
 
First is blue t-pattern, AKA dark check, blue velvet. I think I see a little bit of bronze on the bars.
The second is an indigo

Can you get some lighter pics of that one?

I'll try, s/he was in the back of the pen and it's pretty shaded there. I believe both these are siblings, though we don't have the parents anymore.

Wild? No, it's one that was raised by some rollers we had last year. ThiefPouter gave us the rollers. Why do you ask?
