Like many of you reading this article, I have raised pigeons for many years, and have always enjoyed the hobby immensely. Early on, I became interested in the genetic side of pigeon breeding and was always tinkering with some color project, etc. After trying several breeds, I decided to specialize in Lahores. Now, when I started with Lahores you only found them in Red, Yellow, Black, Lavender, and the occasional Dun. Of course that wasn’t nearly enough colors to suite me. So I decided to add a few more.
