I've always read that there's no such thing David and that its an abnormality and that 2 flights grow out of the same follicle, but as I say it's only what I've read.

I think your right edgie, it says only in one wing, so it sounds like boosey will be right that its an abnormality with 2 growing out of one follicle....

True Smile Smile I would worry for some one, some what bounce bounce if they bought a pigeon on the basics that it had 11 flights etc Wink Wink & that it was going to be a champion race/stock bird for them because of the 11 flights. cheers
