montauban pigeons

Origin Southwestern France, in the city of Montauban, near Toulouse. The exact origin of the Montauban is uncertain. European authorities differ as to whether it arose from a cross of crested Mondian with Runt or simply from a large crested Mondian. The Montauban was formerly a utility pigeon, but it is now a dual-purpose one. It is long in body and feather, very-loose feathered and short-legged. It is known for the luxuriance and length of its hair feathers, an undesired feature for a squab producer.
