    What breeds are muffed, crested, and here's the trickier part, have a "non-ordinary" body shape? Not just the regular, feral pigeon shaped. I was just wondering what other breeds I could find other than the only two that I now know of -- Indian fantails and Archangel white trjasuns.

    Thanks,

    I am personally very fond of Egyptian swifts and English magpies, but they are by far not fancy when it comes to frills etc. Their body shapes are a bit different tho.

    Here are some that have at least one of the traits you are looking for. All interesting looking birds either in their ornaments or colors.

    American Fantasies, Saints, Vulga Tumblers, several breeds of Trumpeters, Mookees, the Cropper and Pouter breeds, Mooreheads (Schmalkaldens are neat looking, remind me of eskimos), Courtyard Tumblers, Helmets (come in crested, non crested, and either can be muffed as well).....

    I don't have pigeons or doves, but I adore those fat, stubby ones.... Modenas.
