Elliott Norwood

I find your web site to be very informative and useful in my every day pigeon dealings. I have raised Birmingham Rollers for the last 60 years and am always seeking answers to my observations. Your publications go a long way toward simplifying my questions.

i have raised pigeons all my life until a few years ago. rollers, mainly, i just love show rollers, but cant seem to find any. i have limited space now and am 76 years young. love your website would love to chat anytime.


Christina A Phillips

Hello I found your site very informative. Unfortunately I still can't figure out what color my pigeon is even with that mountain full of information. Maybe it was too much for me lol It's my first pigeon and it's a rescue but I'm dying to know what he is... if you could give me an email or somewhere I can send you a picture and let me know I would greatly appreciate the 5 minutes of your time. Keep up the good work adaboo1313@yahoo.com


Kevin Mak

Very informative thanks and much appreciated.


Lorna & John Smith

Hi. We have raised Pigeons in the past & love them. We want them as pets, just to enjoy, would like to find a breeder nearby. Rollers are our favorite but they must be good and heathy. We live in Rancho Tehema, Looking for a few to complete our little family. Not for setting , not for competition just pets . Can’t spend a lot need about 12 younger ones I think. Females mostly if possible.

Excellent work. Keep it up


Donald L. Aldrich Jr.

Love your website. I am promoting this link on my website. Great source for those who are wanting or interested in various types of pigeons. Great directory source. Keep it strong. Thanks for promoting. DonA from Michigan


Mark Gladney

Really enjoy your website. Have read many articles here. Am learning a lot. Have learned about varieties of pigeons I had not heard of before.


David E Scarboro

I love your website! I grew up in Miami and always had show pigeons and rollers. Evidently the Florida State Pigeon Fanciers Association is not around anymore, I live in Dahlonega Georgia and there are no pigeon people around me that I am aware of. I am in the process of building a loft and intending to get back into performing rollers. Again, thanks for the site. I will use it regularly.


Mark Mr. Pigeon

I have been using this website for some years and really do enjoy reading all of these articles thank you very much also I would like to have some turners the rollers that spin as Now I do have rollers but these are locals and not much spinning I have had these over eight years and I have had racers here since 1993 of 55 years with racers #703


Carl De Koninck

Hi! My daughter and I have New Your Flights and raise them as a hobby in Lansing. Unfortunately or breeding stock is thin and we are hoping to connect with someone who might be able to direct us to a breeder with a NYF or 2 that we can purchase or trade for. PLEASE contact us if you can help!


Doreen K Lampe

Hello, I've been in pigeons for about 4 years. I've been learning a lot from articles, youtube, my club, and pigeon friends over the net. Thanks for the opportunity to learn more


Tamer UCA

Arif bey teşekkür ederim çok faydalı bir site olmuş hayran kaldım ve bütün hobidaşlarıma selamlar, güvercin genetiği ile ilgili araştırmalar yaparken kendimi sitenizde buldum ve en kapsamlı makaleye eriştim sayenizde saatler geçti siteden ayrılmadan çok merak ettim kim düzenlemiş hangi ülkeye ait diyerek türk olduğunuzu öğrenmek ayrı bir şaşkınlık ve sevinç oldu benim için hayatınızın her alanında başarılar diliyorum.

Trevor Lawrence

Great reading, all new people wanting to take up pigeon fancieing should go over these articles.


Hans Petter Roverud

As a genetic challenge it may seem that variations from T-Pattern to checkered are sort of seamless. I see birds that are very lightly checkered to almost black (spread) with a blue tail and it may seem as a continuum. Granted, some light checks may be dirty blue bars. Further, some poor blacks (spread) show the underlying pattern (check or barred. If several mutations are at work here it would be a good idea to try to keep them apart genetically.


Aaron Jones

Thank you for your website and passionately sharing you hobby with me and others. I hope to build a loft soon. I am still in the researching phase. I do not know anyone who keeps pigeons but am looking forward to doing so! I love what I am learning about Pigeons! They are beautiful, fascinating, varied, and fun!


Mark Jordan

I really enjoyed reading all the information you have collected concerning pigeons it has been very helpful and interesting.


Gary Miller

I started raising pigeons in 1973 in North Newark, NJ when I was a teenager. The first time I saw fancies was when I stumbled upon a huge flock of birds about a block away from my father's house.

There was a guy named Tony; he was Puerto Rican. He must have had at least 500 birds that came from a small coop, in a small yard, under a large tree, on the side of a busy street.

Tony would fly the birds by clapping his hands, waving a flag, and throwing things in the air to spook the birds. He would also whistle with what I thought was a strange sound. "Vvvvvvvveeeezzzzz, Vvvvvvvveeeezzzzz" kind of a raspy sound which we as kids thought was cool.

We would come to see Tonys birds every day. He had mostly fancies. One day Tony asked me if I wanted to fly birds like him; I said yes, and the rest is history! Hooked!!

My love for birds prompted me to build a website dedicated to pigeons and pigeon flyers.

My site is for the use of pigeon fanciers around the world. I want this to be a place to show off your lofts, make new connections, and to share your knowledge and stories of raising pigeons.



Melissa sauer

Awsome site, enjoy the easy yo understand well put together information a beginner like myself can understand and use for reference and to answer all those nagging questions and curiosities. Really getting into genetics. But there are still some questions I just cant find answers for. I have albino pigeons with solid red ruby eyes , bulleyed red, pupil, iris all remain ruby red. Cant find any photos or info on that. Is this common? Also have an extreme dilute female and a male 1/2 extreme dilute,1/2 red, how am i getting extreme dilute babies and black babies? Male and female? Goes against everything I’ve read.

Ned chur

I have been keeping pigeons for over 40 years ,I have had my birds taken from cats, rats stoats falcons but the sheer speed from the sparrow hawk absolutely amazed me every time one of my birds end up as hawk meat, the way I see it I will never give up my birds no matter how many are to slow to avoid danger, respect the hawks and falcons these are mother nature true hunter a great site. if the pigeon men who dont like them, dont keep pigeons.

I want to thank you for your very informative articles. I have learned so much more from you than I have from the four books that I purchased. I just hope I can purchase some young rollers or tumblers for a fair cost. My only question now is what is the difference between a tumbler, roller and a tippler. If you can please let me know. Thanks again... Jim

Great info!It will take some reading & re-reading to absorb it all, I think the first time a lot of it went over my head, as there is SO much info to digest... Thanks for making this available.


Milind Parab

Greetings from India. I am a pigeon fancier from India and I have been following your website since a very long time to study pigeon genetics. I salute the work carried out by you in this field.

The pigeon fanciers in India lack proper knowledge about Pigeon Genetics as there is very less information available in Hindi/Urdu language (Local languages in India). I am planning to upload Youtube videos in the local language to create awareness on pigeon genetics. I will be obligated if you allow me to share the photos on your website as a reference to explain the pigeon genetics.

Thanking you in anticipation.


Mir-Aziz Baihadjaev

This is the most comprehensive list of Pigeon hobbyists in one place I've ever seen!I have kept performing breeds since 2000 and have been out-of-touch in recent time for about 8 years now. I went searching for a olde' flying breed, (Catalonian Tumbler) that I'd like to renew & couldn't believe I am one of few who has them anymore!

This is such a Great source to keep this hobby going for years to come!! Will give this site out at my next upcoming show!

Un saludo.


Paul Gomez

I am very happy that I found your site. Actually I was familiar with the name, but I am a roller man who has not been interested much in color genetics. I have already begun to find explanations of things that I would ordinarily ignore. Great site!! I have forwarded this site to a friend.

I am in California, and I am trying to locate a pair or 2 of West England Bald heads to buy. I do not want bald head rollers, I want baldies with a reasonable clean head marking of any color.

Any contacts would be appreciated, please feel free to pass on my e-mail.



Eugene Mc Master

Hi, firstly you have a great web page. As you I'm a great fan of James Turner. When can we expect the next chapter of your book? Here in South Africa we have lots of Roller breeders, but none breed for color. They just try to improve the spin in the Rollers to win competitions.

Dennis Hilkhuijsen

Great info regarding the Birmingham Roller.


Hans P. Roverud

Very informative website on pigeon genetics!

I used to raise show pigeons as well as homing pigeons when I was a kid decades ago. Sometimes I got unwanted "mutts" as a homer succeeded in wooing a modena. I didn't have the heart to cull the offspring so I took them on a train ride and released them among feral pigeons in a city 50 miles from my hometown. As I got home I spotted them sitting on the roof...

Anyway, I've always preferred functional breeds that can fly. Most of the show breeds were more or less field pigeons in the past. Today most of them won't survive a day outside of the loft.

If I get time to pick this hobby up again I might go for rollers, tumblers or homers. I find the genetics behind the color mutations interesting and I'll commend you once more for sharing this information.


María Alejandra Diaz

Very useful information.! Thank you so much. I don't breed, I just try to help hurt pigeons found in the city. 2 babies raised and a juvenile with a broken wing. Hope I can help more often! Big hug... From Argentina.

What a wonderful site! I have a single fancy pigeon. He is colored like a rock island but with feathers all the way down to his toes. I am not certain of his breed. I am in search of a mate for him. He is my two-year old virgin. I named him goose-goose. He isn't banded as he is my personal pet. Any suggestions? I live on a farm in Oklahoma. Thank you for all your information. It was quite insightful.

Dina Dellit

I was away for two weeks and returned to a nest with two eggs on a small ladder leaning against the eaves. One egg hatched and it has been a delight to watch Harpo develop. (He doesn't make a sound.) Thank you for your wonderful website which answered all my questions. Especially the one about feeding! Harpo has practically doubled daily and now stands outside his nest in preparation of flight. He won't go far, there is a stand of peppermint trees on the other side of our house which is home to all kinds of feathered friends. Again, I thank you for the unbelievable knowledge you have so generously made available. Dina from Perth, Western Australia.


Harold Hoffman III

I really enjoyed reading thru your site and learn a few things I did not know. Thanks for share your passion.

Hi everyone. I have about 150 Persian High Flyers. They all fly. Have to put them up for 2-3 months spring and fall during the hawk migration. Love to watch them when they do fly. Will not have them as non-flyers. IHF out maneuver hawks if they don't get trapped against the trees. Had rollers. they c/n out maneuver hawks.

If anyone is interested in driving to eastern shore of MD I will give birds. do not ship. 443-359-5168-I have all collars of IHF.

Dear Arif,

I myself now live in Bangkok, Thailand. I have been keeping a racing pigeon before but not now. But I always love to read an articles that related to racing pigeon.I do a lot of research in the internet about pigeon article but never come across the very useful and great information like you are. It seem to me that your knowledge about racing pigeon is quite deep into details which I don't think that other people will have.

More importantly it is the way you sharing all the knowledge with out hesitate. Some people out there may posses a lot more knowledge than you are but they don't spread it to the public.

I am very glad to reading information from people like you are and hope that Lord of Buddha be with and blessed you at all time.

Keep on good work.



Ron Padilla

Your site is a wealth of knowledge and insight into pigeons and I would like to thank you for sharing your wisdom!

I have homers so that I can train my hunting dogs but they have become pets to us. I live in Long Island NY and now with the winter here, i don't let our pigeons out. We now have 3 sets of eggs and are expecting these to hatch in the next few days.

Thanks again!

It's nice to see some accurate pigeon genetics information for once:) You don't have to look far to find sites (many by well known racing lofts) which publicise the most erroneous misinformation masquerading as fact while claiming to have 'studied genetics all their lives'. It just makes the pigeon community even more misinformed and confused. As a geneticists daughter it drives me up the wall!! Thank you for your well written and above all, accurate genetics pages. Bravo and good flying!


Sylvia Copeland

What a wonderful site full of great information. I would love to get print editions of this stuff.


Will Hobbs

Love your informative web site. I am a first time pigeon owner, and until now never appreciated the wonders and personaliy of a pigeon. I have a pigeon that I rescued as a baby with a injured wing, brought him back to health, and now he dosen't want to leave. He has made friends with my 5 dogs and even my 1 cat. He gives me so much joy. Loves to sit on my head or sholder and will follow me from room to room. he also dances for me, puffs out his chest and coose in my ears. his name is walter.


Michael Bruce Cooper

I came here because I found an article written by my Grandpa Bruce. It is wonderful to read his work. He really loved his Pigeons and the friends he met along the way.

Thank you so much for your insightful articles. Enjoyed reading them.



Dave Enns

I found your article on "cherry" ash-red look alike very interesting. I am almost certain that I have a cherry in my loft. I'm not sure how I got it . I'm doing some breeding tests to try to determine if it is in fact some kind of reccesive opal


nihal abdul razak

hi, my name is Nihal. i live in dubai. I was just web surfing looking for information on pigeons. At that time i was just having 12 pigeons. 2 pairs of german muffed magpie pouter, 2 pairs of saudi arabian spotted pigeons and 2 pairs of arabian grey cheeks. after reading your article i got more information than i wanted! now i raise more than 100 pigeons and has a pigeon farm. I earn a lot of money buy selling them. I donate some of my pigeons when it becomes over populated. As you said pigeons should not be kept in cages they should get some freedom and i do give them freedom. thanks a lot for your information, bye!


Danielle Sullivan

I do not breed pigeons, but instead came here quite by accident while studying genomics for school. I read your page about lethal mutations and found it to be very informative and interesting. Thank you.


Seth F

I really loved your article on baby pigeons. I am a first time pigeons raiser and needed some help. Thank You Mumtazticloft Lofts


Bayani Banaag

Very good article on the history of the NBRC. The club is but a microcosm of our society. I understand the progression and problems associated with clubs particularly roller clubs as I have been involved in creating 3 of them. Those NBRC problems have also been seen in local clubs. Democracy is an ongoing process, for all endevours. We must keep pushing forward.

Hayley Leigh

I have an unbanded believe it is a Donek that we took in after a bad storm. It is definitely a domestic pigeon, we kept it for 3 days then let it go but it came back. I did some research and realized he was either someones pet or a show/racer pigeon. Any ideas of someone who might want to adopt, I have contacted wildlife bird rescues but they wont take it as they said it is not wild. I am in Annapolis MD.


Rob McKee

This is a marvelous URL;

can you post the :"z" locus hypothesis by the late Williard Hollander?

we can also show how it can be applied to color breeding ;


Lacy Hinson

Great info on the pigeons. I raise pigeons and want to try and get them flying.


Mahbub Habib

Thank you for your wonderful website. Specially for the genetics part. Please, please do upgrade the missing info in the genetics part.


Lezlie Greco

Thank you for this wonderful informative site. I am not a breeder, nor do I have a loft, but I live with a pigeon rescued as a baby from a washed out nest. She lives with my dog and I, free flying on our walks and is quite a character. In trying to reintroduce her to our local flock, have now been accepted by about 40 birds in our flock along the Thames River ... And watch over them thru the winter ... She has not left me ... I love these intelligent and gentle birds, thank you for your wonderful site! Lezlie


Bill CheshireJr

Looking for multi-colored homers, etc to buy. In Lima, Ohio ... No pigeon breeders here. Am from the Northwest , so my google search showed me your page.


Pablo Irizarry

Great site! keep up the good work!


Lisa Rasmussen

We've had a few babies with splayed legs this summer, but we've also had single eggs being hatched. We've had 5 or 6 babies that we've had to wrap their legs, and have been using vet wrap with success, until now. We currently have an oriental roller baby that seems to be part Houdini and has made it almost impossible to keep his legs wrapped. I like your idea of the sponge and I'm hoping this will do the trick. We were lucky enough to purchase some Dale Husband birds not long after his passing and we have a young bird from a great looking Tuffy that we would sure like to keep. Thank you for all your time and effort and sharing your experience with all of us.

Hello, so great, amazing to read some words about my father Dr. Dieter Harmuth, he loved his pigeons since he was a little child !, Really wonderful page, best wishes from Berlin, Germany, W. Harmuth


Nimaan Abdi

Impressive page! This page reminds me back when I was a kid. But still I love them I have never ending passion for pigeon!


Ty Coleman

Hello my friend, I was looking around your page and reading a few articles. The pigeon hobby needs more men like you. Great Job!


Roy Andrews

I like your genetics page. Here something I observed when I had Racing Homers. I would hatch only one egg in a nest. At first I would hatch both eggs. This is what I found, normally in a nest of two eggs from my 8 eight breeding pairs pairs the sex ratio was 1:2:1 by which I mean 2nests of hens : 4 nests of hen/cock : 2nests of cocks. So I started hatching only one eggs, at first egg and got 2 cocks to 6 hens. When for the next round I hatched the 2nd egg and got 2 hens to 6 cocks. I tried this for several years and got almost always the same results. So I came to the conclusion that in a hen/cock nest the second egg seems to be male and the first female.


Charles Johnson

I enjoy all of your Mumtaztic loft ,web page and all your info. your doing great and keep it up. Thanks CHUCK.

I've had the same line of coop tumblers for more than 20 years. Besides having ice in all patterns, blacks and blues, over the years I have added barless, indigo, brown, dom opal and recessive red. I live in Seminole, AL just across the Florida state line.

Somnath Mondal


Myself, Somnath from Kolkata, India. I have been a pet lover since my child hood. I am now 36 years old. Now I don't have any pet other than MY pigeons. The only bird whom I love more than my life. Your site is beautiful and informative. My collection is fancy pigeons and not the high flyers. I have got Satin, Jacobin, Indian fantails. This is the best site I have ever came across created by a pigeon lover. My only dream in life, is to have pigeon farm with atleast 50 different breeds of fancy pigeons. Hope my dream come true.


Ron Simpson

Nice Site!! my two web sites are showrollers.com and mufftumblers.com


Bob Banks

it's nice to find your site. I'm an older guy here in central Pa. I've always loved pigeons and had many when I was younger. I had rollers and homers and a variety of fancy birds. i'd like to get a few pairs to keep again. I'd love to have birds to fly but have a problem with hawks. Being on a fixed income, I have to be careful with my purchases. Thanks for allowing me to post here. I really like your site. Thanks again Bob Banks


Chris Hennessy

Great website mate, so much knowledge you are passing on. Saved this site as one of my favs.


Rick Bennett

Nice web site. I raised rollers for most of my life Penson & Birmingham rollers. I never had Turkish Tumblers. How do I get some. I don't care if they are missed marked just they perform. I live in New York


Charline Price

i love this place, gives you a no hows and what to look for in your feathered friend, i must say if the word were like this place it would be a heaven for birds.


Hanny Adams

I really found this site very interesting. Now, I know how to take good care of my pigeons.


Randy Czerenda

Thanks for the great website and photos. I'm in Deefield Beach, FL, where they don't allow us to keep pigeons. I am thinking of moving soon to a community that is pigeons friendly, and FLL/Wilton Manors is a good location. I would enjoy coming and meeting you, seeing your birds. Again, thanks for your site and enthusiasm.


Carl Pascual

hi there.. I'm looking for Pedigreed Blue Barless Racing Pigeons, and Solid Yellows Racing Pigeons, preferably 2011 or 2012 birds... please response thanks...


Paul Svobodny

Glad I found your site. Lots of high quality information. I've recently become a fancier thanks to a friend of mine, a Palestinian from the Old City of Jerusalem. He gave me a mating pair of Turkish Tumblers. Well, anyway--Thank you. I look forward to visiting your site again.

Robert Jenkins

I really enjoyed your website. I found it to be very educational. I haven't raised Birmingham Rollers since I was about 8 yrs. Over the past couple of weeks I have been doing some research; and wondering whether or not I should get back into the hobbie. I must say, after reviewing your website I maybe convinced to do so. Just wanted to say that you have a really nice and informational website. Thanks for sharing.


Edward Rodriguez

Hello, Just passing thru & enjoying your site.I was forced into retirement due to a work related injury. Barely getting into Racers again. I had Racers a couple times earlier in my life, but never raced them. Now starting slowly, I just bought a pair from a gentleman in Minnesota. Plans are to slowly & collect some birds to form a base for the team I plan to have. Being on a fixed income i really have no choice but to go slowly jajajaja. I really admire all Reds, Blacks, grizzles in that order. Once again it was a pleasure visiting your site.


Chesley Larry Warren

Very informative for me !!


Arvind Darkryder

Amazing web site :) helped me a lot , it provided me with the necessary information for the treatment of infertility :)thanku :) thanks a lot :)


Edward Rodriguez

Love your section on genes. I just bought my first 2 birds (Racers), a Brown Hen & a Red Check Cock with black specks. Just trying to understand the gene part. trying to imagine what color will the babys be. The Rollers are really nice, especialy the ones with feathers on the feet. I planning to get some later on after build a larger loft. I enjoy Birds that perform. I don't like the idea of having birds caged up for life without having a chance to fly free once in while.


redzuan b daud

thanks, lot of information..


David Render

hi i have just come back from benidorm Spain, where i saw some ferral pigeons, one was a light red colour but its underwings were crimson red, i have never seen this before on pigeons, can you tell me what speices ths is. Thank you.


Kathleen R.

I love your site, especially the genetics pages. Even though I am not an owner or breeder, I love learning about pigeon genetics; I have found it quite difficult to find much information, however, outside of a very few sites. Your site is incredibly useful, and it is also one of the few well-made pigeon sites I have come across. I just wanted to let you know that I really appreciate what you've done here... thank you!


Warren De Silva

Thanks for all the information man it was a great read. I live in Melbourned Australia and concentrating in breeding West Of England Tumblers, they are hard to come by here and hopefully Iam trying to get as many colours as possible, this is my second year into them, please do give me any tips especially with these birds.



R. Senthil Kumar

Hi I am Senthil Kumar from Madurai district, Tamil Nadu state, India. I am an advocate. I am really proud to enter in to your guest book as a first person from India. I really love your site, I have got really very usefull informations and knowledge about pigeons. Your informations were priceless and most valuable. I am interested in breeding fancy pigeons. If you provide some good informations regarding fancy pigeons like (king, French montain, magbie pouter, etc.) fanciers like me will get some benifit.

I want to know about individual breeding system rather than colony type, if u give me the cage size details and medicine chemical combinations I can verify the available medicine combinations in India.


Asok Ghosh

I came to the U.S.A. in 1982 to pursue Graduate Degrees. Before coming to the U.S.A., I had pet pigeons and I loved seeing them fly high, tumble, for almost the whole day. When I saw the videos posted in your web site reminded me about one of my pigeons. It used to the same thing - it could not land on our third floor roof for several attempts and rise up vertically tumbling. I have been contemplating for the last two years about having pigeons at my residence. I live in Maryland. I have some concern about how to deal with the pigeons during the severe winter season.


Phoenix Turley

I love your site. We recently got our first pigeon, Russell, and we are actively seeking a companion for him. I think I found a local breeder off of your list, so happy to have found you. wonderful articles... My kids are really excited. Thank you!


Ann X

Hello! I really would like your advice - I'm currently fostering a pidgeon squeaker and would like to know how much food they need per day. Baby also have some problem with leg which looks like it migh be the common defect you described. If you can, please help with some advice.

Dr. R. deVoll Fisher

Beautiful website and very informative. I have a white dove release business in NW Florida and am looking at acquring some Birmingham tumblers. I'm relatively new to pigeons and have never actually seen tumblers in action, but I am fascinated by what I've read and watch on videos. I'm looking for some white tumblers and maybe some grizzles when I'm finally ready to acquire my birds. I have about 50 white homers, another forty or so colored racers (although I do not race them,)20 Indian fantails and 15 white ringneck doves as well as ducks, geese, guineas, pheasants, chickens of every type, a pot belly pig named Hogatha, dogs, cats, parakeets, and cockatiels. Needless to say we are animal lovers. Please feel free to contact me if you ever want to talk. I'm sure I'll be visiting your site very often to learn more and ask questions. Please visit our white bird group on yahoo groups at yahoo.com/group/whitebirdreleases . Mostly we're just a bunch of bird folks who enjoy good conversation and talking pigeon and you would be most welcomed.

One of the best websites I've read. I breed Brim. Rollers in Ca. Moved to Md eastern shore w/ them. Gave them up because of hawks. I now have aquired 20 Persian High flyers. These are pure. I'm looking forward to flying the young this summer. I hope they can manage the sky predator better than rollers. When you watch a kit you can feel the freedom of their flight.

Mike Mooring ''Yankee Mike''

Great looking birds and website my friend, I was very disappointed to see an empty page in your ''FOR SALE'' catagory lol. Keep me in mind if you have any to part with ok? Thank you and keep up the good work.



Great site, very nice articles and great pictures. I currently have Serbian High Flyers (wow can they fly), Shaksharli Tumblers, and 2pr of Iranians plus and extra hen. I really am impressed with the performance of the IHF's and am looking for a cock to mate up with my hen. Color not important flying and vertical rolling rules! I am trying to get birds from different breeders so that I can have genetic diversity within the same general family of birds. How do your birds handle the hawks by you? At this point I am not flying my birds until I can get youngsters unfortunetly the cost of birds makes it tough to want to risk them in the air. I feel terrible because you can see the desire to fly in all of my birds. If you ever have IHF's for sale please let me know. Thanks!


Nick Siders

I have a club website arkansasrollerclub.com that I have referenced some of the information used to your website. The clubs name is the Arkansas State Roller Association (ASRA)

Audrey Emery

My 24 yr old son just got into raising pigeons. I was against it at first because the idea of birds in cages seemed sad, but now I understand it better. anyway, I'm taking care of a newly hatched squab (sorry I guess that's redundant) so I looked you up and really liked your site. I have feeding questions I would like to ask you and really need your help because the mama flew away. Thanks and would luv 2 hear from you.

Darryl Webster Young

I had pigeons when I was around 10-12yrs old. Now, I am 48, and I still have the "LOVE", for pigeons. My wife and I live in a developement, where you can't have birds. In the near further we are going to be moving, and I will have my loft then. Reading your information on pigeon has really help me to understand more of how to keep them. I will be looking forward to reading more, and looking at more videos, also pictures of your pigeons. You have some very nice looking birds, I am a Tippler guy, but I love them all. Keep doing what you are doing and I'll be looking to hear from you.

I am an 83 year old guy who used to race pigeons in n.y. and miami, but now am interested in flights and rollers. i havent had birds for many years but when you have them your hooked forever. i enjoy you site and have learned a lot. thanx for all the info,


John T Roberts

I have been searching for months trying to find some plain insight that comes from the heart. You have done just that. Thank you for your efforts and keen sence of understanding of the pigeons you have chosen to raise.


rabi pal

Your write-up is informative. Hundreds and thousands of people have been in pigeon sports, yet no suitable literature to be found on their origins. These days we are having a shade of homers that are high flying, intelligent and enduring. Falcons are babies to this breed. High degree summer temperatures have seen these birds clocking above 12 hours. Should you want to know more I may be of help.


Pheng Lee

i find this site the most fantastic site to get information off of because i'm new to the hobby and this site gives detail and examples which is fascinating... i have both birmingham and iranian tumblers and this sites gave me all i need to know bout em... Thnx alot and keep up the good work... =)

Salam,very nice site,exellent combination,good luck dear.

Will you please help beginners like me to say how its cages to be built, what feed to be given as we get in India, how to care them, size of cages, how to train them fly for hours without landing, etc.

Bob Kitcheman

Hello from England,
Magic double magic l visited site 3 or 4 times a day, really good. I am building a loft for fancy pigeons but the weather has set every thing back that is why i look at your birds every day.


Ahmad Karim

Thanx alot mumtazticloft for the usefull information. I got the female at the end of summer last yr and now its end of winter so i guess i have to wait and see if she lays eggs in summer time but thanx for ur help.


Ahmad Karim

Hi it’s me again hope your ok and enjoying your time with your birds. I wanted to ask a question I have a Iranian female which I had for nearly 5 months now but she won’t lay eggs I tried putting her with a different male because I thought maybe something wrong with the male but still no luck an experienced breeder told me she should lay eggs because he said the bird is 2 yrs old by looking at the bird feather , just want to know if u can tell me what could be the reason for her not laying eggs they have created a nest but no eggs any suggestion plz ??? Thanks and hope to hear from you soon.

Hello Ahmad,

I forwarded your question to one of the foremost authorities I know when it comes to pigeons and their genetics, Frank Mosca. The following is his answer. I hope this helps you and many other breeders who might have the same problem.

“Okay there are a few possibilities here.

1 - The hen is sterile. It happens. I had one archangel hen years back that didn't lay for four years. I had her posted and the vet told me she had a malformed oviduct from birth.

2. She's out synch with the male. The guy can try this. Pop a wooden egg under her at about 5 pm, then 2 days later do the same with a second wooden egg. Let them sit the eggs for ten days and take the eggs away and let them go to nest again. Sometimes that will 'cause the hen to lay the next nest.

3. She might be calcium deficient or vitamin E deficient. Make sure she's on a good diet with sufficient fresh grit replenished every other day or so.

4. The experienced breeder is wrong and the bird is younger and not yet ready to lay or (depending on where the owner of this bird lives - she's not getting enough light and she's in winter mode.) If that's the case, he can wait till later toward the spring or add more light hours with a timer in the loft/breeding pen.”

This is my new website. I raise Uzbek tumblers!


Dave Driver

Fabulous website, best I've seen, I have just bought my first 2 pairs of Iranian High Fliers, after 40 years of racing pigeons. Will be reading all I can.


Hector Hernandez

Nice looking birds!!!


Gary Bradshaw

Great web site! Beautiful pictures!

I found an orphaned and starving female feral pigeon on May 12, 2007 that was about a week old, based on the daily development pictures in your baby section. Needless to say, after hand-raising her, she turned into our 'spoiled' baby.

Sometime around August of this year I noticed that the feathers on her back, starting right behind her neck, were deteriorating such that only the center shaft was left, giving them the appearance of a course hair with a tassel on the end, somewhat resembling a small paint brush.

Since then I've tried everything imaginable. First, when 'caged bird spray' didn't work, I took her to the only avian veterinarian in this area who "thought" it was mites and treated her for such. (He injected something onto the skin of her back in the infected area.) After that apparently didn't work, we've dusted her a total of three times with 5% Sevin Dust, sprayed the infected area with a diluted bleach solution (supposed to kill fungus), and nothing seems to make any difference.

So, here it is five months since the start of this and right now her back looks better because some new feathers are coming in, but those new feathers have already started to deteriorate as well.

Note that she's never shown any signs of sickness because of this. She's energetic, has a good appetite and all.

Through all of this I have never seen any kind of bug, and I have searched many times using a magnifying glass.

Please advise me on what else I can try if you can.....


It seems like you did everything I could have suggested. I never had an experience with this particular problem so I can’t really help you. If I were you, I would post this on pigeon Talk and I am sure someone there will help you out. Here is the link : http://www.pigeons.biz/forums in the bottom there is a link that says: “Sick or Injured Pigeon and Dove Discussions”. If you are able to post a picture of her condition, it would really help too.

Thanks for all you do for that bird, and good luck.


Ras General

Nice looking birds. I own a number of Rollers and Iranian High Flyers. Let me know when you have Pensom birds available.


Nico Rizo

I enjoyed looking at all your birds. I been around birds since a kid at the age of 9 in NY at the roof tops. Watching flying tipplets.


Anton Matjanec

Very nice and useful for each pigeon breeders, roller sports club Croatian 2010 years for the first time will compete in the World Cup Fly as chairman I would like to correspond with you and thus gain some experience in fostering Birmigham Rollers
beautiful site
I hope that we will be able to correspond


Dave Zornes

I don’t know who set up your web page but all I can say it is the best and most informative I have ever seen. I have been raising Birmingham Rollers for 42 years most from the Pensom line. Seeing I lived in Maryland and bought the best birds I could find on the north east coast and it is great to see a young man like you champion the cause and dedicate so much time in the breeding and development of performing breeds. On your home page you mentioned the bronze roller. Well I bred two of them this year and would like to let you have one of them. I have met you; I am the secretary of the CENTRAL FLORIDA PIGEON FANCIERS ASSOCIATION the guy that does the set up and tear down of the show cages at the shows E-MAIL me.

Thanks for the complements. Being a web design teacher at a local high school I designed and maintaining my website. Hope to see you soon and we’ll keep in touch via emails.

Saeid Rajaei

Hi guys
Do you know how to treat "Newcastle disease; PMV-1; in pegions? I have a big challenge with this infection and I haven't find a proper way to treat this deases. So I'll appriciate you if you have a practical way(medicine,....) to treat it.

Thank's a lot, Saeed

Paramyxovirus is the most dangerous threat to our pigeons. There is a vaccine approved by the US Government. PMV-1 stands for Avian Parmayxovirus Type 1. Once the bird gets this virus there isn’t much you can do about it!!! You can try giving them the vaccine but it will either kill them instantly or will cure them. You must vaccinate your birds every 6 months and separate the sick birds from the rest as it spreads pretty fast. Good luck!

Francis Veranda


this is a great site for pigeons fancier. i am interested to buy some of your breed. would it be possible to have some? i am very excited to have a superior pigeon from you.


Saleem Ullah Nasir

Its really nice website. Im from Pakistan and have alot of types of racing pigeons. I've a loft of over 100 pigeons. Training breeding and racing styles is much different here than the US and other country. As far as genetics are concerned here people learned from other people and they are very expert in it without reading any book but just personal experience. In Pakistan its not developed as a sports. In Pakistan you may have almost every types of pigeons i personally know many people who do have imported and local birds and they are doing very well.

I guess there should be an organization where we could gather info about different types of pigeons in the world and should have competition around the world so that we can decide which type of the bird is the best for racing and high fly.


Edward Burgos

I will continously visit.


James Taylor

enjoyed looking through your pictures you have some good looking birds especially the bald heads. JT thanks


Dennis Panasci

Nice site lots of good info, but do you breed your rollers in individual pens so you know who is the true father, I’ve seen too many loft breeders ruin their own birds by open loft breeding. Keep up the good work roller rookie from Ct.

Thank you and YES!!! I do breed them in individual boxes and know who their parents are…


Scott Willoughby

You have some nice birds.


frank crew

Hi, i would like to get started i dont care what kind of pigeons i used to do homers as a kid but moved and could not take them i have no idea how to find some or who to talk to i dont have alot of money if you could help me it would be great my kids love them to.

I have some 70 breeding pairs of the above mentioned breeds.U have very nice web site with very good information. You may also visit my web site. Hope to hear from u.


Rick Mee

By far the best web site I have seen on the net, thanks for inviting me to check it out.



R Pavan Kumar

Thanx for your reply to mail of Feb 16, 2009. One of my birds - Homer, 75 days old, has not been eating properly for the last 20 days and she vomits whatever little that she consumes. She has become very weak and not even able to go to her coup. Since then no growth noticed. I tried to consult Vet Doctors, but here in Bangalore, Vet Doctors mainly treat only dogs and cattle. Please help me to help her regain good health. Thank you.

I honestly don't know what to advise you. The loss of appetite and vomiting could be a symptom for a lot of sicknesses. In cases like these where the sickness is unknown without proper lab testing of the droppings, I give my birds a product called 4 in 1. It treats them for Canker, E-Coli, Paratyphoid and Coccidiosis. I also give them Sulmet 12.5% (Sulfamethazine). Sulfa drug commonly used to treat a wide variety of pigeon diseases caused by bacteria. Sulfamethazine is recommended by vets for treatment of: Cholera, Coccidiosis, Paratyphoid, Sour Crop, kidney infections and some types of colds. A lot of people use a drug called Baytril. I believe this drug is also used for cattle and you should be able find it in your country. The common brand name is Enrofloxacin . It is a powerful drug and repeated use should be discouraged, as it also kills normal bacteria of the bowel. It is useful to treat individual unwell birds where the exact cause is unknown. After the treatment I give my birds probiotic which is used for repopulating the digestive track with millions of essential and natural gut bacteria, wiped out by antibiotics. If I were you, I would also check if the bird has canker, which is a whitish, cheesy form in the throat or other cavity. Check for Sour Crop also if the bird opens his/her mouth as though he/she is yawning repeatedly. For Sour Crop I use baking soda for couple of days, but then I give them probiotics to replace the good gut bacteria killed by baking soda. Please understand I am not a veterinarian or have a medical degree. I am also not very experienced breeder. I am simply stating what I would normally do when I have sick bird where the cause is unknown.

In addition, post your problem to http://www.pigeons.biz/forums/ under “Sick or Injured Pigeon Discussions”. You will get a lot of help from more experienced breeders and veterinarians.

I hope you will be able to save her. Good Luck.


rahul kashyap

Thanku master thanku u dont no u shoutout my biger problem thanku .................... i will touch with u all tmie u give me ur personal email id

Hello to all pigeon breeders .. The homepage is made super easy SUPER ..

Mfg Elvis


Rahul Kashyap

thanks for telling but my dear i dont have any information fo pigeon medicien and disies so i tell u plz. you tell me kenker, pmv & more deisie in you use medicien I live in delhi(india)in delhi not any pigeon hospitel & not a docter no any bady tell any medicien so i will tell you u give me information for pigeon care (medicien) i have 100 pigeon (macpai,indian gola and some high flying ) plz you help me & my pigeon

Ok, for canker I use Ronidazole (Ridzole 10%) Tablets. If you can’t find this in your country, go to a pet store where they sell aquarium fish and get a medication for fish fungus. Canker in pigeons is caused by the same organism that creates fungus on fish. For PMV the only thing you can do is vaccinate your birds. Once the pigeon in infected, there is no cure that I know of to save the bird. If you try to vaccinate a bird that has PMV, it will die instantly. It is recommended to vaccinate them every 6 months. For Paratyphoid, E-Coli and bacterial infections such as Haemophilus (a respiratory infection) I use an antibiotic called Amoxicillin. I order my products from http://www.foyspigeonsupplies.com/ and they do ship internationally. I hope this helps. Good luck.


Rahul Kashyap

I see ur site this is very good and u do very well but u not show any medicine plz u give me some medicine name& disease

thank u

Thanks for the complements. The reason I did not mention the names of the medicines is because I don’t like to advertise brand names. There is a variety of medicine out there and every breeder has their choice of medicine that they feel work for them.


Phil Mcquistion

Thomas Lincoln

Great website. The best I've seen so far.


R Pavan Kumar

I am overwhelmed to visit your website. It's Great! You have provided lots of information. I have not got so much information on any website. May I request you to send me the videos of tumblers and rollers flying and any other interesting videos. I have also started raising pigeons. Thank you.

The only videos I have is posted under the Vidoes link. There are tons of them in You Tube. Good luck with raising pigeons.

Nice site mate, I am from England and I have been trying to purchase a pair or two, of the turkish takla, but no luck is there any way u can help. I will pay shipping costs what ever, thanks.


Rick Rich

Thank you for the site. Looking for frillbacks and fantails that I raised as a kid. Now I have time and space again.


Craig Grafton

Very informative and colorful site. Lots of good information. I fly Oriental Rollers and have hawk problems year round here in Illinois. This is my first year with Serbian Highfliers and have gotten the young kit to fly about 2 and a half hours now. I think that 50 birds is about the right amount to keep with all those different breeds. If you raise too many you are doing a disservice to the birds and yourself. Hope that you have had a good breeding season.


Faris Al-Timimi

A very nice, informative website. Is there any publication that covers all the Turkish Pigeon Breeds?
Best wishes.

Faris Al-Timimi

Thank you. I am not sure about any publications but I highly recommend turkishtumblers.com for more information about the Turkish Tumblers and other Turkish Pigeons.

Amazing coloures. I am from south africa. I am breeding with birmingham rollers for the past 20 years, own bloodline, and own strain and good rollers. Your coloures are fantastic. I would really like to bring that into my line. Is there any chance? good site, well done.

Thanks for the complements. I really don’t know much about importing and exporting pigeons or eggs from other countries to the US and vice versa. I have never done it but I know there are private companies that import and export live poultry. You need to find a company or contact your Department of Agriculture in South Africa to find out how you can import from other countries. If it is possible, I will be glad to share my family of birds with you.


sunny thusi

I had some pigeon in my loft so long, when I fly them some bird never show. I lost many bird like this, what can I do, how do I train my birds please help me out this problem, I live in Toronto Canada, thanx.

Without knowing what kind of pigeons you have, and how you fly them, I don’t know how I can answer your question. If you have a flying kit of birds, it’s very hard to lose birds, unless the bird is new to the loft, it’s a baby in training or it’s “THE HAWK SEASON”!!! If you have birds that have always been kept as breeders and were never let out, you will lose those birds too. Don’t fly your breeding stock, get babies out of them and fly the babies. Everyone has an opinion and a way to train and fly the young birds. It’s all depends on the breed, location and the experience of the breeder. I explain the way I fly my birds in this website under “Baby Pigeons”.


Vinod Menon

woowsome!!! very informative site. neatly done. your great love for these beatiful birds is evident from the way you explain every single detailed info. Keep the good work going. Peace and happiness.

Yaw and Mog

“Have you heard of that fable, Yaw, written by that famous Greek, Aesop? Well anyway, I shall tell you about it. There was a hungry hawk that chased after a flock of pigeons, but no matter how fast he went after them, they always managed to scurry to safety.

“So one day the hawk decided to use deception. From a nearby tree he told them, ‘Because you live a life of constant fear, if you make me your king, I will keep you safe from any aggression.’

“The foolish pigeons believed the hawk. They made him their king as they thought that he was interested in their welfare. Once on the throne he issued a proclamation. From that day forward, he ordered that a pigeon be prepared every evening for his dinner.

“Do you know the moral of that story, Yaw?”

“Common men who vote an incompetent to power deserve their fate,” Abayaw replied.

Very informative pigeon breeder website. It’s the biggest state by state pigeon breeder’s directory. Your pigeon breeders list helped me find a lot of pigeon breeders in the United States. I like reading the pigeon articles as well. Keep up the good work. This is one of the best pigeon sites I have seen in long time.

I am happy to hear that. Good luck.


Ahmad Khan

hi ur site is very usfull especially bout da training young birds. i want to ask a question about my bird its been nearly 20-21 or 22 days since my birds layed 2 eggs n it still hasent hatched i m worried n want to ask u if it will hatch or not i had a look at the egg the other day i could see the shape of the baby bird in the egg n da parents are still taking turn sitting on the egg but i am not sure if it will hatch thanx n also the weather is very cold so i tought maybe it will take longer for them to hatch in cold weather if u could help me with dis plz tanx

In Florida, where I live, it takes 18 to 19 days for eggs to hatch. In cold weather, it can take up to 21 to 22 days. I would wait couple of more days if I were you. However, sometimes even if the egg looks like it’s fertile it may not hatch. Sometimes the babies die or sometimes they are not strong enough to hatch. If you are accurate about the days, I would wait couple more days. I hope they hatch…

One of the best pigeon sites I have ever see ,in this occasion I would like to ask you how possible to send eggs to some one abroad because I am seeking to do so if possible.

Thanks for the complements. I really don’t know much about importing pigeons or eggs from other countries to US. I know they have to be imported and kept in quarantine for a while. It is not an easy or a cheap process to bring them to US. Here is the link I found from the United States Department of Agriculture, which explains importing live poultry procedures from all countries to the United States:

Sweet pigeons

I am from Australia and have started breeding Turkish Tumblers by chance. My first bird a pure white took up residence on my air conditioner at the front of my shop. After 2 years there I had 3 more birds fly in and he eventually mated with one of them and I have bred 5 birds since (2 died at maturaty for no apparent reason) 2 of the birds I finished feeding by hand and fly to my shoulder when I go out the back.

Kurt Gürsu

Hi Arif, Just noticed the link to your site on the pigeon talk forum. You have done a nice job with the site. Also very nice looking taklas you put together. How did you do this season? Were you able to train any young birds?

Thanks for writing. I am very happy with my taklas. They produced some good offspring, and they have been training well. I have lost a lot to the hawks but, that’s part of the game. I try to fly them everyday and really enjoying this great hobby. Now, that I got the performance I was looking for, I will now work on making certain colors and crests.


Pha Thao

Great website!! I really like your birds:)


Joe Polidoro

Very very nice Website!!! I just made one too!! Come visit! http://www.brookdalelofts.com


Hector Coya

I like your website. I noticed a crested bird on your front page. I am one of the few that are breeding crested rollers, these were given to me by a few diferent breeders that hapen to pop up in their lofts, they are not crossed as far as I know, these birds tend to be deep, I'm still trying to cut down the roll, im getting too many rolldows but I have got some real nice 30 ft fast rollers.
You can check out my web site if you want.
Thanks, Hector Coya


Chetan Swarup

Great pigeons and bundle of information for amateur fanciers like me. Keep updating more info, as I felt nice going thru ur site.


Yasar & Jodi Berkil

Thanks again Arif,
You are truly a wealth of information. We appreciate all the help that you gave us and I am sure that we will meet again. We are so happy with our birds, they are already members of our family...


James Clarke

Love the fancy pigeons but don’t keep them. I keep mostly whites and a couple of pure black. Looking for yellows but very expensive here in Ireland. Caught in a high flyer in during the summer so must get a mate for him seen your birds on you tube and look great site you have here. Bye for now regards from Ireland.

Karrar Aldhalimi

Your birds are looking good and your web site looks better. When are you going to add more pictures im enjoying your birds the more pictures the better. Keep up the good work and keep breeding them talk to you soon


Joseph Fernandes

Very beautiful birds, particularly the Iranian white with black tail. I have just started keeping pigeons in Toronto. I have some Iranians, Tipplers and Serbians. When is the atmosphere free and safe from hawks for flying pigeons in the North. I already lost too young ones in the last 3 weeks.


Amjad Javed

I'm so excited to getting tumblers from you on upcomming week. I can't describe in words. Thanks


Jim Yang

You have some of the best rollers in color I've seen. Very pretty and beautiful. And very nice page.


John Higbee

What an impressive site. You have really done a great job. The turkish tumblers would be fun bird to fly. A breed I will definetly have to try.


Stanley Yarker

I really enjoyed your pages on your pigeons even the photos of them are very good I am from Middlesbrough in England

Hi everone,
ive just got back into pigeons after a few years. I am setting up a loft in manchester england with mainly rollers.
please email me if anyone wants to chat.


Jeff Matt

Nice looking birds. Excellent website. Your advice about eggs that don’t hatch is correct. Canker can be cured with "ronidazole" can be purchased at Foy's pigeon supplies or purchased at a fish tropical fish store for fungus on fish. Hope this might help.


Bill Gantic

Very nice site you have on the Takla, I had a type from Iraq. They are fun to fly. Thank you for visiting my website about Adana Dewlaps and the nice comment about my birds.


Karrar Aldhalimi

You got very good birds I used to breed Turkish tumblers here in Detroit but my cage got broken into and all my birds where gone I was very sad I would like to start again with your help please email me at karraraldhalimi@yahoo.com you would be a big help thank you 3134438952


Mark Anthony

Hey buddy, nice selection of pigeons. I breed pigeons also. I used to have birmingham rollers in New York and New York flying flights. I live in Florida now, and raise a few different breeds. I have New York flying tipplers, New York flying baldies, flying helmets, racing homers and, new york flying flights. I see that you have a flying flight(almond bald head)actually, that flight is crossed with something else. Looks to me like a cross between a capuchine and maybe a flying flight or some kind of baldhead. Nevertheless, its still a pretty bird. If you have the time, take a look at my website at:
and enjoy the pictures. You can leave me a comment to let me know what you think. My email is flights64@yahoo.com you will see some real good pictures of my New York flying flights and other pigeons as well. hope you will enjoy.............markanthony
