Show Antwerp Pigeons | all color type

black show antwerp
Origin: England. The English Antwerp was developed from Belgian homing pigeons, imported principally from Antwerp, around the 1860’s and 1870’s. These performing birds were first exhibited as Show Antwerp and Exhibition Antwerp. Later the Antwerp Club, founded in 1890, provided classes for short-faced, long-faced, and medium-faced birds. In 1894 medium-faced birds were popular and fabulous prices were paid for outstanding specimens. Contemporary writers mention outcrosses the Barb and other breeds, but not one of them knows of such crosses through first-hand knowledge.
