The Danzig Highflyer is a breed of fancy pigeon developed over many years of selective breeding.[1] Danzig Highflyers, along with other varieties of domesticated pigeons, are all descendants from the rock pigeon (Columba livia). There are two major variates of the Danzig Highflyer: ones that are bred for show, and others as pets for flying.
