Saxon Fairy Swallow

The Saxon Fairy Swallow is a breed of fancy pigeon developed over many years of selective breeding. Saxon Fairy Swallows, along with other varieties of domesticated pigeons, are all descendants from the rock pigeon (Columba livia).[1] The Saxon Swallows and Wing Pigeons have various markings and patterns (spot marking, cap marking etc.).[2]

Saxon Fairy Swallow pigeons are well known for the odd feathered feet.[citation needed]
