What would you call this color?

Post by Sam »

This is a 2 month old homer pigeon. I believe the color is a incomplete spread with bar showing through. What would you call it? I listed pictures of mother, father and sibling. The first is the pic of the bird id like identified! Thank you!

Probably "unimproved" or "dichromatic" spread, does it have a tail bar?

He is definitely dirty, and possibly something else darkening him. If he were spread he (usually) wouldn't have a tail bar.
