Wild Type Male

Wild Type Female

The WILD TYPE is not a single mutant, it is the standard or normal coloration. The bird has a dark grey/brown  body, tail and wing shields. The flight or primary flight feathers are nearly black with fine light colored edging.. The male's head, neck and breast have an amethyst or pinkish coloring. Hens may show less coloration in those areas. The eye color is deep red chestnut. Bill is black. Neck ring black with a thin white edging on top & bottom . Undertail bar black. Has thin bluish grey wing edge. Legs & feet reddish purple.

FYI: the vent coverts should be white. Because of hybridization with the Eurasian Collared Dove (Streptopelia decaocto) since the 1980's, either intentionally or unintentionally, the undertail coverts may be suffused with grey or be totally grey. This facet can be found in Wild Type as well as any other Single mutants for Combination Colors.
