BPSS Hall of Fame, Show Categories and Trophies

FULTON TROPHY

The FULTON TROPHY is presented for the Best Bird in the following group: BLOWERS

Pigmy, English, Norwich, Brunner, Voorburgh, Horseman, Spannish, Holle, Variety Blower.

The various cropper breeds originated through the ability of the cocks to fill their crop with air and to coo around the females with an inflated crop. This ability was transferred to the females through selective breeding. Croppers form a close bond with their owner, making keeping them very enjoyable. In view of the size of the crop, it is very important for these show pigeons to have a feed that is easy to digest.

Croppers can be subdivided into giants, medium sized croppers, dwarf and Spanish croppers. In addition to the well-known breeds such as the Norwich, Pigmy & English there is a lot of interest in more specific breeds such as the Voorburgh Cropper and the Brunner Pouter.

A.E STARK TROPHY

The A.E. STARK trophy is presented for the best bird in the STRUCTURE Group

Exhibition Fantail, Indian Fantail, Chinese Owl, Frillback, Old Dutch Capuchine, Jacobin, Trumpeter, Rare Variety Structure.

The best known show pigeon, the fantail, belongs to the structure pigeons category. The fantail owes its name to the way in which it holds its tail. It looks like the fan-shaped tail of a peacock. The striking feathers mean that keeping breeds such as the Chinese Owl, the Jacobin and Old Dutch Capuchine requires particular care and attention.

  • 2010 - P.C.J ALLEN - Frillback
  • 2011 - BENSON & BALL - Jacobin

This is the largest group of show pigeons. Tumblers are divided into breeds with long, medium-long and short beaks. In addition to the widespread breeds such as Long Faced Clean Leg Tumbler and Muffed Tumbler, many less common tumbler breeds with a short beak, have a growing number of fans.

These are among the oldest show pigeon breeds. They have a neck frill (collar of feathers at the front of the throat) and are short but broad in structure. The beak may vary from short ( Oriental Frill) to medium-long (Old German Owl). Owls are very calm show pigeons and love receiving all the attention they need.

ARTHUR ALLUM TROPHY

The ARTHUR ALLUM Trophy is presented to the Best Bird in the COLOUR group.

Swallows/Saxon/Thuringian, Archangel, Ice, Lucerne, Rare Variety Colour.

The main distinctive feature of these show pigeons is their colour variations and unique markings. These breeds are completely undemanding with regard to breeding and have excellent vitality. Breeds include the Archangel, the Nuremburg, the Franconian, the Thuringian, the Saxon and the Swiss colour pigeons.

THE HEROES TROPHY

The HEROES TROPHY is presented for the Best Bird in the FORM Group which includes,

Lahore, Modena, King, Antwerp Smerle. Dragoon, Magpie, Fancy Homer, Barb/Carrier/Scandaroon, Runt, Rare Variety Form.

As this name suggests, form pigeons are distinguished by their body form. This category included both true 'giants' such as the Hungarian Giant and normal sized pigeons such as the Antwerp Smerle and the German Show Homer. The Damascene also belongs to this group.

Form pigeons also have typical characteristics such as markings and a beautiful array of colours. Muffs, round tufts, crests and similar features result in a great variety of form pigeons. They include the Coburg Lark, the Lahore, the Strasser and the Polish Lynxes.

Also included in this trophy section are the WATTLE pigeons.

This is a very small, exclusive group. They are distinctive because of their nose wattles and, in some cases, the enlarged eye ceres. Breeds include the Barb, the Carrier and the Dragoon. Some preparation and experience is required to breed and keep these breeds. Wattle pigeons flourish best from their second or third year.

HEN pigeons are also in this trophy section.

Hen pigeons hold their tail aloft, which gives them a chicken-like appearance. King pigeons are some of the real heavyweights among show pigeons. They can weigh over one kilogram.
