The nas of xot pigeons ;
Originally from the Balearic Islands, especially from the island of Mallorca. This fact led to the extinction of some of the breeds and in those that survived their breeding was reduced to certain more localized areas. In Mallorca it is also known by the name of “Colom Manacorí”, since it was almost exclusively bred in Manacor.
