Baghdad is a useful breed with a long and straight beak. The head is long and the top is quite straight. It is difficult to feather. It has a straight head and clean legs. Its main departure from Columba livia (wild type) is its beak length, long and wide nose series, and large series of eyes.
The species is rare in Spain today and only in the hands of a few enthusiasts in Catalonia. it is a good breeder and an excellent companion bird. If the breed does originate in the United States, it’s really rare.
