Historical facts tell us that the removal of birds have already been made in the period of the 20th century. Studies have shown that the true ancestors of the species were represented by fruit dove that lived in the local areas. Often, these pigeons with combined Russian and Ukrainian varieties by the method of reproductive crossing and selection. The objectives of the new breed were significant improvements in the field of exterior appearance, flight quality and the best disposition. As it turned out, all the efforts were not in vain pigeon and the results have created a new generation of improved pigeons.
Birds newly-breed has all the necessary characteristics. On the whole area of the body has been noticed an unusual pattern and character of pets has become more unique. At the moment, you can not firmly say that this kind of cease any investigation, because development continues on tsvetnobokih pigeons.

With the help of modern techniques that improve the qualities of the pigeon, fanciers do not stop to introduce new upgrades, with which the new offspring begin to progress. Compliance with the new generations in appearance and like the character – the main cause of work with scientists breed fanciers.
