The Felégyhaza Tumbler is a breed of fancy pigeon developed over many years of selective breeding.[1] Felegyhazer Tumblers, along with other varieties of domesticated pigeons, are all descendants from the Rock Pigeon (Columba livia). The name is short for Kiskunfelegyhaza, a town in the Hungarian lowlands.[2]
