Unusual Color Baby Pigeon

Post by ahmerrizvi »

Hello Adam,

Please see the attached files. this baby is of my blue bar pigeons but looks very odd to me. what is your expert opinion on it? Parents (dad on left and mom on right).

PS. the rings I bought from an online store and they are of year 2018.

Thanks.

It might be dilute indigo? One of the parents is definitely not blue bar, it looks like an indigo bar. Are you able to post a better pic of that parent, including the tail?

It looks like indigo, although indigo usually has a more smudged tail. My best guess is the baby is a dilute indigo bar hen. Will be interesting to see it grown up!
