Australian Performing Tumbler ( APT )

Australian Performing Tumbler -APT

This breed of pigeon was developed through selective breeding in Australia from originally imported Tumbler Pigeon stocks. The APT has been a popular flying variety in the past due to the spinning/rolling action typical of the Tumbler varieties. Wendell Levi discusses the tumbling performance and several early Tumbler breeds in his book The Pigeon. Earlier versions of the APT were quite good little performers in the air. Nowadays however the breed is maintained mainly for exhibition purposes having first been developed for the show pen in the State of New South Wales. The APT is a very popular show variety in the Australian States of New South Wales and Queensland, where the largest number of breeders of this variety can be found. A show standard was adopted by the Australian National Pigeon Association in 1991 and has now been upgraded further thanks largely to the efforts of Mr Max Van Geet and Mr Vaughan Kelly
