Grand Champion English Pouter #89 at the 1998 Pageant of Pigeons.
Over 385 pouters competing .
The English Pouter, like the Pigmy Pouter are unmatched in the pigeon
world for their upright station. When posing an excellent specimen will
stand upright so that its eyes will almost line up over the balls of the
feet. Well trained show birds will consistently be strutting and show off
with its globe well inflated. When walking and strutting this pouter will
carry itself elegantly and proudly with strong stepping legs with the feet
going forward and not sideways. The perfect manner of walking can be compared
to a prancing horse! This playful breed has been in America since the 1870's
has has developed a strong following here.
