    Hi I am new to pigeons. I inherted a small flock and fell in love. I would like to add, 2 pairs of Fantails. In a photo there was a white bird with black wings, is this call a saddle? Are there any Breeders in NY. Thank you Alex

    Link to Indian fantail these are top show birds, I use to raise and show them for many years. There are some pics of saddles also.

    Two old type of fantails indians and english. Sure more type since I stop raising them. English dont have crest or muffs(feather leggs )

    Yes, that is called saddle. Saddles come in a variety of color in their wings. But the body is always white (supposed to be, mismarks are common) [​IMG]
