    Yes Chris I did. I didn't go into the Fancy birds until Sunday afternoon. My criticism of the Fancy show was that there were no labels to let people know what the breeds were, unless I missed them, but I did hear quite a lot of people commenting about it. As a result, apart from a few obvious ones, I don't know what a lot of them were

    what great clear photos you took there bob, well done, I know the first one is an arcangel, and there are some types of pouters in there but not sure what type they were.

    I'm using a Fujifilm FinePix 2600 on auto with auto flash. I have had the camera for about 6 years now and I can't fault it for all kinds of photos

    No.1 Archangel (gimpel) and a lovely specimen too. No2.Indian fantail (I think) but can't see the crest. No.3 may be a Modena and beautifully laced. No.8 is a Wolverhampton tumbler. No.9 looks like a Lahore. As for the pouters I don't know as I'm not into them at all and especially the frog legged ones. Hope I ain't offended anyone but we all have different tastes and the wee doo accommodates them all. 😉

    Ye I know. Didn't think there were so many different types of pigeons until I took them up again holy moly Only ever came across racers, fantails, archangels, and a couple of types of tumblers. My mate and his dad had the Horseman doos and used to fly them in Edinburgh so I'd come across them but was never attracted to them but was impressed with what these guys did with them and at least they were flying and entertaining. He used to have to take them into the house overnight cause they would get stolen or killed by some scumbags :grrrr!: Personally for me I prefer the flying birds, the ones that have their freedom in the sky but I do also appreciate the guys who breed for show but think some breeds are way out of hand and should have been culled in the beginning. Big long necks, frog legs, bald necks, feet with flight feathers on them (turn upside down when wings are tired and flap feet) :Very Funny: faces like they've been well kicked in, back to front feathers, rollers rolling about the lawn, come on they got wings for Fx sakes :not happy: not for me but suppose they must give pleasure to some. How are those white rollers coming on bye the way, there’s more to them than meets the eye Duncan, eh! Cheers.
