    I got them from a Russian guy who knew nothing of them. Im new to pigeons, (not poultry) and I'm not sure if these are even pure bred. Thanks in advance!

    I'm in east tn. Newport/morristown, Knoxville area.. Always looking for other pigeon people. Looks like an eastern European breed I've seen in a breed listing. Breed them n see what a few pairs of their young do when you fly them.
