roman pigeons

The Roman is a French breed of pigeon though with a name that might suggest a native of Rome.

Superb athlete, your grip, harmonious proportions, line free, cleared the port Romain pigeon exudes strength.

Beak large, arched, medium length, extending a strong and broad head, adorned with a pearl eye to bright red membrane.

This eye is the prerogative of the breed, it is essential its genetic character. Without it no Roman and no ranking possible in an exhibition: it has the black pupil, iris pearl.

Short neck and thick chest overcomes a very broad and deep keel straight whose length varies from 10 to 12 cm.

The back is broad and flat, not narrow hindquarters. The wings are held close to farms caudal;

A beautiful Roman should give the impression of always being ready to fly.

The tail of 8 to 10 cm wide should be neither raised nor diverted. The wingspan may exceed 1 meter.

The minimum weight is 1000g /35oz(for barred) a little less for one color.

Some subjects can reach 1500g/53oz and more.

The subject is supported by strong legs, short and vertical.
