When it comes pigeons, people share pretty mixed opinions. Some call them “flying rats” because of the diseases they carry and the poop the leave behind, while others (like legendary boxer Mike Tyson, for example) find the birds absolutely fascinating for their ability to cross long distances and always find the way home. However, there’s another reason why people love these birds – their looks.

The Frillback is a breed of fancy pigeon developed over many years of selective breeding. Frillbacks, along with other varieties of domesticated pigeons, are all descendants from the rock pigeon (Columba livia). The breed is known for the frill or curls on the wing shield feathers. The feather curl should also be present at the ends of the foot feathers or muffs.
