The Lahore is a breed of fancy pigeon known for its impressive size and gentle nature. Lahore pigeons, along with other varieties of domesticated pigeons, are all descendants of the rock pigeon (Columba livia)For a very long time this bird was bred in the present area of Lahore, Pakistan. It was imported into Germany around 1880 and became popular among pigeon enthusiasts at the beginning of the 1960s. They are usually found in the area of Iran (Shiraz) and are some of the most colorful pigeons. These ornamental pigeons from ancient Persia were once bred for their meat, but today they are raised for their beautiful plumage and colorful patterns. Their calm and gentle natures also make them delightfully tame pets.
