    My Aunt brought me this pigeon that showed up at her place.
    I'm not a pigeon person so would appreciate any information
    about this one. Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    Edited to add, the closest breed I could find is "English Trumpeter"

    The bird is about the size of my Jacobin. There is another band,
    I will get the information from the band tomorrow.

    Thanks Larry and Zoo for your help

    Looks like probably a saint pigeon.

    Kinda looks like a Moorehead to me..but I've never seen an all white Moorehead.

    Some sort of tumbler?

    I think it could be an Old Dutch Capuchine. [​IMG]

    Moorehead would look like that, but would have a colored head.

    Capuchin wouldn't have feathered feet.

    Looks to be a saint pigeon.

    Hey there,

    I agree, it looks like a Saint pigeon to me too. Beautiful looking pigeon too!

    Take Care,
    Bill.
