    I attended a fancy poultry show and these were up for auction. I thought they were really beautiful. I wasn't able to ask anyone what they were. The patches on their shoulders were iridescent. Any ideas?

    I agree with you completely. I can not say for sure what kind of fancy pigeon these are. I have never seen this colouration before. I have been around more pigeon lofts than the average person I dare say. They maybe the result of years of breeding by this particular fancier. I hope someone can solve the mystery.
