    I've seen one years ago at the Reading, PA show. Purebred Pigeon did a great article on them a few months ago.

    I know they are very scarce in the U.S. It may be a good idea to import some. You could make some money back by selling some of the offspring.

    Found Somthing in The Pigeon by Levi about breeds that are similar to these described. I sumerized
    Rumanian Bare or Nacked Neck Pigeon
    Orgin: Rumania
    Description:
    Plain Headed with meadium frontal
    Short and featherless legs
    Wings carried below a long tail
    2 or more inches below the head bare of feathers
    Its presumed that the bare spot on the neck is bare from hatching.
