Specificity of the

breed Piglet pigeons are probably one of the most famous breeds among domestic amateur dandelions. It is difficult to name a city in which they would not be bred. The reason for such widespread use was the unusual flight that a bird does. In it she seems not only just waving her wings, but also trying to twist them. From this breed also has a second name - a reversible pigeon. Such a bend of a wing some reminds a crescent or a sickle.

Flight features do not allow long-range flying of birds. Often, they prefer to climb high above the house, hang over it and gradually descend.
