The pigeon now known as the ‘English Modena’ was developed in the early years of the nineteenth century by a group of English Breeders headed by the late W.F. Holmes and once the ‘type’ was fixed the Standard for breeding such birds was written down by Holmes and adopted by the National Modena Club of Great Britain.
The principal feature of the ‘English Modena’ is that it is a bird of ‘curves’ and it is bred in two distinct types, namely, the Schietti and the Gazzi. It has also been produced in a large variety of colours.
