Pigeon breeds: French type under counter


Colombo selected starting from the original Italian type (brought to France in all probability by Italian workers who emigrated) with the help of insertions of pigeons of other breeds. This has led to the creation of a very different animal, officially named by the European Federation of French-style Sottobanca, while the simple name Sottobanca ”was reserved for the original Italian pigeon.
