Re: Moroncelo crosses


I believe it's T-check with 2-3 darkening modifiers. Look at the tails, they have a slight bar.

I think the bronze came from the Morrillero and when it mixed with the Moroncelo's pattern and darkening modifiers it exploded like a match on gasoline.

I'd sure like a couple of pair of Doug's powdered Show Racers. Wow, they are almost like Ice.

Re: Moroncelo crosses


Doug is a treasure for the hobby, Gary. Go to a show JUST to meet him. Last time I saw him was at the Pageant of Pigeons in 2000, I believe. I was judging some birds and turned to see him walking down an aisle admiring the birds. Of course, he was dressed like the proper British gentleman he is. First time I met him was at the Racing Pigeon World Olympiade in Holland, 1979. We had corresponded for years before that. I once owned the 1965 Olympiade winner, Cymro from Edgar Griffiths, Wales.

Let's see, Alan. Silvio up in Canada brought in several of Doug's beautiful birds for his son right before Doug headed for Australia. Call Silvio Mattacchione at 905-985-3555. Tell him Shannon suggested you check on the Show Racers (British style).
They have some of the powder blues and some ash reds and dilutes. What feather!

Ah, that's what I thought--T-check it is. So we can blame the Morriello ancestry then.

What's the rationale behind that cross Alan? To add some vigor and increase the gene pool heterozygosity? To add some "color" to the Moroncelo gene pool? To add some of that Morriellero "fire" to the same gene pool?




I guess I didn't answer this question. The cross will widen the gene pool as there was only a limited amount of birds originally imported.
