HERE YOU SEE THE MOST BEAUTIFUL SHORT FACE BUDAPEST PIGEONS IN THE WORLD AT MICHAEL SEILER’S LOFT
Short Face Budapest Standard
The short face budapest pigeon is one of the most unique looking breeds in the fancy pigeon world. This storklike pigeon has been developed through years of selective breeding. Originally bred in Hungary, this breed is now popular in the US and Europe as a show bird and pet. It’s also known as a poltli or budapest short beak pigeon and it is a descendant of the rock dove (Columba livia). The short beak saves weight and helps the pigeon fly higher in the air. They are a rare breed and they have a high mortality rate, so it’s a bit of a gamble to keep them alive. It can be a lot of work to raise chicks with such an odd appearance, but they are rewarding birds to own. These pigeons are very alert and active. They usually respond well to human affection and can be good pets. Their frog-eyed expressions give them a real personality and they are very friendly. They can be a great choice for new pigeon owners because they are so easy to train and they make excellent companions. They can be found in a variety of colors, including blue, grizzle and stork. They have an average live body weight of 255 grams and they are an excellent family pet. They are extremely loyal and intelligent and have a wonderful sense of humor. They are a very social breed and love people attention. They are very alert and active and they can be very happy in their homes.
