The Biggest Pigeon Ever!


I know on Rabbits size wise you have the tiny Netherland Dwarf and the breeds tend to get bigger to the biggest the Flemish Giant.
so i was wondering.... whats the all time biggest breed of domesticated pigeon?
how big can they really get?
im just curious.....
have a great day

I believe the Crowned Pigeon is the largest, about the size of a small turkey

Thank you so much- Charis they are really Pretty.
i heard that flemish giants Rabbits have a gene that only lets rabbits get so big ,that no matter how much you try to breed them bigger they will never get over so many pounds its like there is a limit gene. i wonder if pigeons are the same way or could they get really huge?

I just love him! He doesn't do much flying...just too and from where he wants to perch. NOBODY bothers him, he just struts around with his head high, shifting his huge shoulders back and forth as he walks, and loves to flirt with all the ladies. It's like he moves in 'slow motion'..."I'm cool" With a very deep, basey cooooooo.....kinda rumbles the walls He's actually doubled his weight since I got him!
Thank you for letting me adopt him!
