    Got these new pigeons (never owned any actually...lol) Can anyone tell me what breed they are and what color...and the former owner said the one in the back(the splash looking one) is a female...and the brown is a male. He also said their homing pigeons...is he right?:idunno[​IMG]

    I don't know much about pigeons (never kept any), but to me those pigeons look like Old German Owl Pigeons. That's about all I know.[​IMG] You may get more answers if you post in the Pigeons section: Pigeons and Doves
