    What are archangels? Do they tumble or what do they do? They are crested.

    If they are Archangels, then they are Archangel mixes. Archangels are show birds, so they just look pretty [​IMG] I'm not aware of any tumblers that look like that. Coop Tumblers are plain-headed and muffed if I remember right.

    Does the tail fan out at all? Could be Danzig Highfliers if it does.

    Danzig's are straight from the tip of the beak to the top of the back of the head. I have coop tumblers that look the same. They come crested and non crested. The most common colors are black, cream bar, red bar and red check.
    Is the band a club band or a npa band? My original birds are banded with a sct band.
