Re: Gimpel/Archangel pigeon genetics.

I've created a list of Gimpel phenotypes on the wiki. It would be amazing for some experts on this breed to help populate it!

Re: Thin pigeon

I'd be surprised if you don't see worms in the droppings. I'd also treat for coccidiosis, the treatment is safe and cocci are quite damaging to sick pigeons.

Re: Black beak black feet

As far as I know a linkage hasn't ever been identified, but that doesn't mean it isn't there! I'll try to keep note of any dirty in my whites when I'm breeding this year. Remember though, there are a heap of different ways to produce a white phenotype: https://www.pigeongenetics.com/wiki/index.php/W...

Re: Thin pigeon

First I'd be ensuring she's actually getting food (not outcompeted by stronger birds), and that she isn't infected with parasites (worms, cocci, canker).

Re: Black beak black feet

Great example! That's exactly how it works. And a great example of why it is good to keep photos and records.

Re: Post your blues here

That is hard to answer. We're not even clear if there is just one "dirty" or multiple, and their effects. This study really threw a spanner in the works. I'd recommend reading it: https://www.biorxiv.org/content/10.1101 ... 1.full.pdf

Re: Post your blues here

Correct, that's why the symbol for dirty is "V" :)
