latest pictures of fantail pigeons collections

The Indian Fantail is a breed of fancy pigeon developed over many years of selective breeding. Indian Fantails, along with other varieties of domesticated pigeons are all descendants from the rock pigeon.The keepers at the San Diego Zoo who had obviously never seen Indian Fantail pigeons before were so taken by their distinct looks that they decided to keep, and later breed and develop them. It was from these two lucky birds that the species of Indian Fantail pigeons spread beyond Indian shores and reached the farthest corners of the world.

These birds are well known for their beauty and their fan shaped tail makes them different from other pigeon breeds. They are bigger in size than the English Fantail pigeon. The indain fantail doves are also known as homing doves. People usually keep these pigeons because they make the beauty of their home. They do give eggs in similar pattern as other pigeons do.

Usually a breeding pair can lay eggs around or after 21 days from the first hatch. Indian Fantail pigeons are most commonly white with light tan spots, although breeders have introduced more new colours. They have a fan-shaped tail and their feet are covered in feathers. Their average weight is 13 ounces (369 g) and their average length is 11 inches (28 cm). It is interesting to note that the birds walk on their toes. The chest is carried upright so that it is higher than the bird’s head, which rests back on the cushion formed by the tail feathers.for different pics....
