    Well, I've never been to a pigeon show before and the sign said Pigeon Show, so I'd say I have been now, haha. They had tons of amazing breeds, and I wanted just about all of them! It was really cool, and as you can tell from the pics, I loved the Modenas, haha.

    The third one down is called an oriental frill. They were always my fave of all the pigeons my grandfather had. They are gorgeous and elegant but bred in a way that they're beaks are too short. In order to breed them, you must put the eggs under homers or some other pigeon or hand raise them.

    LOL, clucky! Thanks! Yep, they come in so many varieties, they're really fun birds.

    Thanks, Jenn!

    Thanks, Julio!

    No problem, OEGB! Yep, they're pretty cool lookin birds!

    Thanks, Msbear. I wasnt sure what it was. They're really cool looking birds, I just hate the whole not being able to feed their young thing. Seems kind of pointless to me.

    Hey Bill,
    Nope. I didnt see any Lahores and I was watching! They're gorgeous pigeons!
