    I bought her at an auction for $1. I knew she was a different breed that no one was used to seeing because I raised pigeons in the past. Anyway, I think she's a Damcene (can't remember how to sp? it, sorry)

    Don't think she is a Dammescene.Looks more like a Budapest but they aren't usually crested. I would say some kind of tumbler breed for sure tho.

    Looks like she might be a Damiscene cross.

    I was thinking a Damascene mix as well. Neither they nor Budapests are normally crested. When I get home I'll check my breed book to see if anything else looks similar [​IMG] It is a cute bird though!

    Damascene cross for sure. Not sure where the crest would have came from tho. Not a budapest although it looks it. lol Maybe some type of highflyer would be my guess? lol Cute bird tho
