Modena Pigeon


Species group:
 Domestic (Fancy) Pigeons

Scientific name: Columba livia domestica

Appearance

Details: Many people consider the Modena Pigeon to be the world's top show pigeon. This large pigeon is bred to present a striking curvy shape with a prominent chest, uplifted wings, and a tail carried high, so that it gives the total impression of being round and proud. Most individuals are calm and gentle, so that they show well.

The English Modena Pigeon is bred specifically for color. There are two types - ”Schietti” which is a solid bird such as a pure bronze or pure red, or a ”Gazzi”, which is a pied bird, with a solid white body but colored head, tail, and wings.
