You are wellcome. As I ran into quality picks here and there I will continue to post them here to give an idea with the color names etc.

These birds on the photos are all one breed. They are all Takla. Kaplan is a generic name given to any breed of bird with the same coloration. I am not sure what it is called in English.
grg wrote:Also I see albescent (whitish) strip on the outer tail feathers of Erased Smokey Blue. Is Smokey just a local term?
That white strip is very common for all blue birds. It is on the outer edge of the last two tail feathers.
Does it have some genetic significans or something??
Smokey is a traditional name which is not specific to a location but used through out the country.
Now, that bird is a very very light smokey because of the erasing that takes place but if you take a look at the TRAINING article, the last photo on that page belongs to a bird that is only called Dumanlı, in other words Smokey.
grg wrote:PS: May I post some pics on pigeon genetics forum?
I really don't want the page to turn into a genetic discussion but if it is something like how you guys call this color type of a thing, can you please post it on Open Forum section?
I just want to make sure people don't get confused with different breed photos.
If you don't mind.
