The English Trumpeter is a breed of fancy pigeon developed over many years of selective breeding.[1] English Trumpeters, along with other varieties of domesticated pigeons, are all descendants from the Rock Pigeon (Columba livia). This is one of the most popular breeds in the USA.[2] The English Trumpeter is regarded as one of the most ornamental breeds of fancy pigeon. Combining a tuft, crest and large muffs on their feet, they are challenging to breed. They are bred in a number of colours which are listed under self, splash and baldhead.


The name is misleading, as this breed as known today is an American creation.[2]
