Датский Голубь Suabian | Dänische Suabian Taube
Danish Suabians are a member of the Color Pegion Family and are of the Field Pigeons type. This breed was created by crossing the Oriental Frills and other birds. Like other pigeon breeds of this general type, the Danish Suabain has broad, strong and slightly prominent chests. They have broad shoulders that taper slightly into their back and tail. The Suabian has rather short legs that are red in color, and are either peak crested or plain headed. The eye, cere, and beak colorations of the Suabians vary depending upon the coloration of the bird.
This pigeon breed is bred in six recognized varieties: silver, blue, black, red, yellow and mealy. The noticeable head marking found in this birds is formed by the principal color passing in an even curved line from the wattle, over and behind the eye, and extends downwards and forwards to about 2.5 centimeters below the beak. This color usually appears as a narrow dark line between the wattle and the forehead.
