hi guys ,
if you could have any breed or breeds of pigeon what would they be,?


my all time favorite is the valencian pouter , a spanish theft breed , i hope to someday have a small flock of them ,

there a crop pigeon , but unlike most crop pigeons there crop hangs down low on the body near the breast , were most crop pigeons have a crop right under there beak,

they were breed , so that a cock bird would fly from his loft and find a hen and bring her back to his loft , hence the name theft pigeons , anyone whos hens were stolen would have to pay a small fee to get there birds back ,

here is a pic of what there like ,

i would love to hear about your favorite or favorites , and see some pics of them if possible ?


regards jase

When you say pigeon breed do you mean domestic or any type of pigeon???

If just domestic then i would have to say the
Ice Pigeon http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Ice_Pigeon.jpg
and the Nun Pigeon http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Nun_pigeon.jpg

If all pigeons then Nicobar and Victoria Crowned

I assume by breed you mean domestic pigeon type.
Species would include the fruit pigeons, ground pigeons etc.
