Starling pigeons ( Startaube)

Startaube - Etourneau - Starling pigeons
This variety is very old and was being bred in South Germany and Thuringia since the 1600’s. Originally the fanciers of Thuringia preferred the smooth head Starling and Blue was popular also. In S. Germany and especially in Schwaben the blacks were recognized only and preferred in peak and shell crests. Today one finds in the South many smooth headed but the blues are still to be found mainly in Thuringia.
