G from what I see 4 of the eyes are from pied pigeons as they are bull type eyes

Number 4 i would say is not a pied pigeon

I don't know much about theses type of eyes as they are difficult to read but is I was to pick any of them I would pick

Number 4 & 5

BUT I KNOW NOTHING

Missed uploading this one. Mark, you are 100% correct! However, this eye sign theory is interesting.

Imo The eyes halcanada selected are all very good racing eyes, all very similar as well, Im going to agree with Don on the first eyes in the post shown, they do seem to be bull eyes from either pieds, reds or black / dark pigeons. Non of them are breeding eyes outright although some good breeding qualities exist in them all, but for me they are racers.

The other Violet eyes are a little stronger and the best violet is picture number 3

They are all racing eyes but would say sprint pigeons

Yes but I think this is happening because it is different people's perception and its a good way of having there pigeons checked

Which I'm more than happy to help out but

I KNOW NOTHING

And everything is JMO

Halcanada this is the best eye out of the four you have posted this pigeon can do the extra distance but is still a racing eye

You need a very strong violet eye to bring the best out of this pigeon

George Smile Smile I respect your views on this subject along with G 's etc also. If one placed these 5 eyes in the breeding loft along with the eye from the best breeder in the world that we discussed here, do you not consider there may remotely be a slim Wink Wink chance, they could breed half decent birds for someone to race & have success with if treated in the right way. cheers

When I mate up. x number of cocks go with x number of hens. They pick their own mates. All the parents that have been kept back have flown well. Racing eyes? Of course! I keep racing pigeons!!

I understand they are racing pigeons but Halcanada they are a weak type of eye but I think this is because the family is old and may need some new blood to improve the characteristics in the eye JMO mate
