Yambol Akman ornamental pigeon – also known as Yambolskie– is a variety originating from Bulgaria, which has been informed that it has been developed since the time of the Ottoman Empire (a possibility from the 13th century). These varieties classified into the tumbler pigeons type, are considered one origin with Plovdiv Akman, but are stated “to have very different bodies and must be treated as two different races”. Yambol was declared a pure descendant, while Plovdiv Akman was “created”. This variety has spread quite widely, and has been included in various international events. It has a similar appearance to Plovdiv, and also a beautiful and acrobatic flying ability.
