Hey Jase,

Is that floppy bit at the front of the pigeons just feathers or do they have a flesh bit that hangs down like a very large crop under there?

They are very nice looking birds.

Deb :-D

hi deb,
that is a crop, you may of seen other cropper or pouter pigeons before ?
this breed is different as the crop is a lot lower down on the body, most croppers have it right under the beak,

there a very old breed , and are also rare ,

hopefully i will beable to breed a few , in the future,

thanks for the interest

regards jason

Sorry Jase but they are not for me. That whole lower crop reminds me of Jabba the Hut :lol:

Have decided I love the nuns and am now looking for a couple of prs just for my pleasure.
