Indian Fantails
As the story goes, the original Indian Fantail arrived in the United States as food for a snake being shipped to the San Diego Zoo from India in the 1950s. Over the last 65 years, this truly American breed of pigeon has been bred from being a small 12-14 oz. bare-toed bird to a bird whose average weight is 18 plus oz. with large muffs and tails. The present day Indian Fantail is bred in almost every color there is in pigeons and is one of the more popular breeds.

White Barred Ice Pigeons
The ice pigeon was developed in Saxony, Silesia and South Germany. Ice Pigeons are one of the oldest members of the German Color Pigeon family. They were first recorded in the United States in the 1870s. The color is described in their standard as “ice blue, as light and soft as possible, so light as to appear almost white. They must resemble the color of ice from pure clean water.” This particular blood line of ice is so light it’s almost impossible to see the white bars. These birds are all bred from German imports.

European Damascenes
Damascene are considered an ancient breed from the Middle East. Although the country of origin in unknown, indications are that they came from Damascus, Syria where they are known as the Bhuze. It is uncertain when they were introduced into North America. These birds were imported from Ben Kocken one of the top breeders in the Netherlands. The main difference between European and American Damascenes is the size. American Damascenes are 13-15 oz. whereas the European are 15-17 oz.
