Pigeons - Three Nuns with varied colourations, Fancy Breed

A portrait of three Nuns with varied colourations standing in their pigeon coop. The Nun is a breed of fancy pigeon, also known as the Dutch Shell Pigeon. The Nun is one of the oldest breeds and was originally a flying tumbler before being developed for exhibition. It is a mostly white breed, with a hood of feathers which gives the name to the breed. As seen in the illustration, the Yellow, Black, and Red Nuns show the breeds variable colourations. Date: circa 1880s
