Hello Pigeon Raiser,

If such a breed exists, there are some world wide experts, which will be along shortly, to tell you anything and everything you want to know about this breed. I just happen not to be one of them.

My fast research, seems to indicate that it is a term applied to a fantail, you can do some research starting here:

Yes In england long time back the fantail was being called a shaker. But that was late 1800s early 1900s. The fan is much more evolved from that point now. But still there may be another breed that is called that

Thanks to those who replied.Got these birds at a meet in ohio.Had never seen these before.The man i got them from said it was only the second pair he had seen.They sort of look like a small magpie long wings long neck.When your close to them they continuously shake n bob there heads.They are the neatest little birds ive seen.The probly is i would like to raise some but there both roosters.Ive got homers and west of england tumblers but dont want to cross them.Believe these could be some kind of tumblers from imports.Thanks again hope for more replies.

The Zitterhal is also known as the Stargard Shaker. It and the Mookee are known (well, used to be known) as narrow-tailed Shakers. You can probably guess what the wide-tailed shaker is now called. the (standard) Fantail. Al

Pigeonraiser,

The Zitterhal is indeed a majestic breed of pigeons. It is great to see shows where there are 50 or more of the breed shown and they are all bobbing around.

In competitions the more "zitter" (neck shaking) a bird displays the better it does (of course other standard features must be there too).
