  • No ‘close kinship with the Coburger Lark’, two totally different breeds, one is a large ‘Form’ (Utility) Pigeon, the other a colour pigeon (Nürnburger) and one of the most Elegant.
    The later addition to the ‘Lark Marked’ the ‘Mehlicht’ Lark in Bar and Barless (once a separte Breed) (Mehlicht’ is NOT ‘Mealy’, it in fact translates as ‘The colour of Pale Meal(Flour) and pertains to the Pale (not white) wing colour) was bred by using Coburger Larks and this is still evident even today, with a tendency for the ‘Mehlicht’ to develope a slightly more ‘robust’ type (especialy in the head properties) that must be countered by selective pairing. PPS the Lark Marked and the Mehlicht should NEVER be crossed together, here in Germany they are bred as two separated varieties.
