    since you have a fancy breed already maybe you need a performing breed like rollers, tumblers or tipplers

    Our
    Classic Oriental Frill, bluette, hand-raised. He's showering with my husband's ringneck dove. The pigeon likes to hop down and splash around your feet, but the dove only sometimes enjoys an occasional shower. The frill is in dove-love with the dove, and will fly wherever the dove goes. He is a terrible flier. He more pathetically flaps after the dove like a lost puppy. The dove, who we previously thought was a female, turned out to be male as she/he just started calling the pigeon to the nest. They are both boys, so they may find that isn't going to work out so well.

    The pigeon gets into everything. The dove is more into perching. The pigeon likes to eat toes, including his own. He is fascinated with toes. The dove would probably mug you for millet.
