    Hi, just wondering what color you would call this? He's one one my favorite cocks, he's so pretty. Sitting eggs now too, super stoked!

    I'm thinking some sort of tiger. But just in case what breed of pigeon (pouter I'm guessing) is he?

    He's kind of a mutt, his mother is a yellow/white half Serbian Highflier half "Arabian Roller" and his father was a blue check rescued feral.

    I'm thinking he is a T check pied or a black pied. Need a better picture showing his back and tail to accurately tell what colour/pattern he is.

    He is a very interesting color. He has a blue tail so he is definitely a blue i'm thinking T check with a sooty gene and bronze mixed in.
