Newest Trumpeters arrive from Utah!

MANY THOUSANDS of THANKS to Greg Pola in Utah for sending me these amazing birds! I am completely smitten with these birds, but especially this first hen. She is oozing breed type and has the "S" shape that we are striving for. Beautiful crest and mane, with a nice tuft, nice rich andalusian color and nice width for a hen. She's a beauty!

Below, Andalusian splash hen
her mate, a black cock. He is standing up in the photo but is much more handsome than that :)
A stunning black splash cock. I love his hard feathering and crest, and beauitufl 50/50 splash marking.
His mate, a young Andalusian hen. She's also very typey with good color.
This red cock below blew me away. He has gorgeous depth of color for that color (red0 and is a very powerful bird with a thick neck, wide body and short length.
His mate. A yellow hen who is VERY stylish and typey. Beautiful color and depth of underbody. I'm in love!

Many thanks again Greg! Your help is so very appreaciated!

Wow beautiful! I've loved pigeons forever but only raised them as a kid. Never so fine like these new birds of yours tho.

OK, I'm a terrible dog owner for saying this, but when I saw the pic of the first bird on a thumbnail preview, I thought it was a photo of my Pomeranian....

Hi Garrett,

Only had a few common white pigeons for 4H growing up but these are gorgeous! I don't know what the standard calls for but to me they ooze breed character all over. Love the depth of color and patterning!

Simply stunning birds!

A breed I can't stay away from

its true I guess that I would be first known for the fine wooled Shetland Sheep that I have procured and traveled across the USA and UK to ...
