Hey everyone. I have been asking a lot of questions about the hungarian pigeons I recently and have one more for ya! How can you tell if a pigeon is male or female? Because I bought them as a pair, but I am beginning to think that the guy sold me 2 males
THey both do the cooing and puffing out their chest thing. DOes that mean I got two males?

One of the most frustrating problems in pigeons is sexing them. In some breeds the males have bigger heads and thicker necks, some show nothing differant. Males make two sounds, coo-wak wak (this can vary from breed to breed) and ooo ooo ooo (driving sound, means lay egg here). Males also strut, which involves blowing up the crop dragging the tail and bopping around while cooing. Hens can make short higher pitched coos, but usually only if made mad. Hens will bow and fan out their tail usually without the cooing.
