Voorburg Shield Cropper

The Voorburg Shield Cropper is a breed of fancy pigeon developed over many years of selective breeding. Voorburg Shield Croppers, along with other varieties of domesticated pigeons, are all descendants of the rock dove (Columba livia).[1] This breed was developed by C.S.T. Van Gink at Voorburg in the Netherlands in 1935.[2]
