Pied Marking in the Domestic Pigeon

Some pied markings are constantly inherited with minor deviations. So with shield pigeons and recessive magpies. Others breed not true as the 'intermediary' magpie-marking and some color-heads like Konigsberg Tumblers.

Less well known is the splitting of the rare Vogtländer Trumpeters with a monk-marking into monks with colored tail, self whites and full-colored.

New for most breeders is a similar inheritance in white heads from the North Caucasus, discussed by the Remco De Koster in No. 24/2017 of the German ‘Geflügel Zeitung’ with photos. One of the secondary colors is over-marked piebald and the other is full-color.

His report demonstrates again that not every pigeon breed that has a white head has the same heredity. Therefore, we should not call everything that has a white head 'Baldhead'. This raises the expectation that one can explain all these markings according to a uniform rule.
