    I do miss the ones I had before. I'm in Alabama though. But now Maybe I can raise some more. The only birds of my that are laying now are homers, modenas, pouters, and dragoons. I wish my fantails would hurry up and get to it.

    well i hope you can , i love my trumpeters but i have always had a problem with them crushing their eggs [​IMG] so when they do lay their eggs i take them and put the eggs under a pair of showrollers and that works best or better yet HOMERS they are the best parents
    Fantails are beautiful a friend of mine Billy has fantails i had him cut the tails back so he would get fertile eggs because none were hatching , well now .. BABIES !! [​IMG]

    What are Dragoons ??? do you think you could post some pics ?[​IMG]

    We have zitterhalls, frillbacks, rollers, homers, fantails, modenas and fiquritas, I think that is all. Altogether we have over 200 pigeons.


    I did forget one, we also have barbs.

    Keith C. :

    I have show quality Bohkara Trumpeters. They are quite a bit larger than the English.

    It's eyes are behind about 3/4 inch of feathers.
    It is a rare breed.
    Bokharas are like the English sheep dog or Cousin It of pigeons.
