The Egyptian Swift is a breed of fancy pigeon developed over many years of selective breeding. The name swift was given by reason of a resemblance to the bird of that name.[1] Egyptian Swifts, along with other varieties of domesticated pigeons, are all descendants from the Rock Pigeon (Columba livia). The breed is known for its long wings and tail and its short beak. The breed also comes in some of the most spectacular colors known in pigeons.[2]
