always like to see tusks on hens and cocks for that matter

Daz if you can take a photo of the eye and put it on here the one thing I will say to you when you look at the eye is there plenty off dust ??????????

heard of this before Darren, I have a few hens with tusks but never found they were any better breeders than non-tusked birds, but then again ive not raced much to have a valid opinion, but I suppose its like fanciers saying a third bar is a good pigeon, are they, or is it just another theory some are desperate to cling on to in their search for a champion / good pigeon.

No Davis that's on the butt but the out side and the true comment should be " Bastard Flights"

The coverts provide a protective sheath, a layer over the spines of the main primary and secondary flights and are seen in the photograph below. And while, in this case, it is hidden by the author’s thumb, there is another small oddity called the “bastard wing” (meaning spurious or fake) or alula (plural alulae) meaning winglet, which is a small projection on the anterior edge of the wing. The alula is the freely moving first digit, a bird's "thumb," and typically displays three to five small flight feathers.

If it's the ones I'm thinking don, a mate of ours lent us a dvd, can't remember who it was but they spoke about these 3 feathers and he was quite definite in looking for them,and relied on them to tell him if they were for distance or sprint

Never even knew about them. Distance or Sprint? By the feathers? Interesting! But will not check my birds. Did a study of eyesign for a few years. Gave it up. Not reliable. Best birds I have , have yellow eyes plus other darker colours. Also of equal merit are the ones with the pearl eye. Also of equal merit are the in betweeners. What about this eye?

I`m inclined to agree hal, race winners come with all eye types........

seen this strange eye picture before, but cant remember what the general consensus was as to why it was like that, probably just nature...... scratch

Yes Mark but when you look at them they look as if they have been cut straight across with a pair of sissors
