My first pair of pigeons were big daft looking things, think they were called dragoons but I might be wrong. 

My dad kept rollers and some high fliers that I'm sure we're called cumlets? He also had some tiny things with little beaks. 

We also had a gay pair of pigeons, they even looked gay with little curls all over em, think they were called frill backs.

I keep thinking I'll get some Birmingham rollers again one day

The ones with the little beaks could of been Chinese or African owls or figaritas

I keep getting tempted to try a pair of Spanish thief pouters on the local ferals but it's a lot of expense and ball ache to set up and if they don't work them it's a waste of time.

 The horseman and crosses I tried were unsuccessful on the ferals.
