At first glance the Pouter pigeon may look like a product of two too many inbreeding.
The Pouter pigeons are domesticated varieties of the Rock Pigeon, Columba livia, characterized by a very large, inflatable crop. There are many varieties of pouter with little in common except for the nature of the crop. The origin of the breed is unknown, but Pouters have been bred in Europe for at least 400 years. Pouters are among the tallest of pigeons and these slim birds can stand around sixteen inches tall on their very long legs.
Fun Fact: Edwardian fashion of the early 1900’s modeled their so-called “pigeon pouter blouses” in regards to the poofed breast of the bird.
