The Shirazi is a "low flyer" breed of pigeon. This kind does not reach high altitude and at maximum is able to fly couple of hours. The way Shirazi pigeons fly is a combination of turning around the loft and going to a distance and keep coming back. They fly as a kit.
They are saddle (in different colours black,brown etc) with a marking from the head all the way through the back.
