View attachment 2425745 This is mom she look like this because she is about to lay an egg
View attachment 2425747 And this is dad looks like a blue Cheque with a lot of white View attachment 2425748 but the baby is a dark blue bar with two white flight feathers .
Is it normal that they give birth to different colored babies??
The baby has the same base color as the parents - blue/black. The differences in appearance is due to other genes that affect pattern and cover over the color with white. There are only three base colors, ash-red, blue/black and brown.

The newbies are in the loft now. Pictures coming soonish.

Red boy seems to think he wants Sundae. Well, he's gonna have to pick literally any other hen, lol. If he seriously keeps trying that, I'll have to pick a hen and separate him with her until they pair.
And you don't want him to pair with Sundae? Because she is too young? ... Child brides are a thing with pigeons! :lol: Can't wait to see the pics!

How to train high flyer and low flyer pigeons which I bought from my neighbour, to come back to my loft and not go back to his loft?
You need to keep those prisoner, in your loft. Raise a few clutches of young pigeons, and release those from your loft. Those should homeset to your loft. Then you have 2 choices.
Sell the original pigeons to someone else,
Return them to your neighbor.
Hope you do not misunderstand the term PRISONER..
It is a term used to describe a pigeon that is kept inside a loft, and given
:loveLOVING CARE:love, but not allowed to leave the loft. Used to produce young pigeons, that will return to your loft.
When the pigeons are from such close loft, it is almost impossible to homeset them to yours next door.
WISHING YOU BEST,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,:highfive:
