The Modena Pigeon

The Modena is a breed of fancy pigeon developed over many years of selective breeding.  Modenas, along with other varieties of domesticated pigeons, are all descendants from the Rock Pigeon (Columba livia). 

The Modena breed comes in many different colors, in two main varieties, Gazzi and Schietti.  Pictured below is a Black Schietti and a Bronze-Tri Gazzi.

The National Modena Club was incorporated in 1936.

  • Gazzi is a pied marking with the head and portion of the throat, the wings and the tail colored and the rest of the bird being white.
  • Schietti are non-pied birds with the majority of the bird being only one color.
