The Oriental Frill is a breed of fancy pigeon developed over many years of selective breeding.[1] It is originally a Turkish pigeon breed specially bred for the Ottoman Sultans in the Manisa Palace, Turkey. Manisa is an old Ottoman city in western Turkey. It is called Hünkari: the bird of the Sultans in its homeland. The variety is divided into several variations in color and markings with Blondinettes and Satinettes being the most common.[2]

The original form is still being preserved as the Old Fashioned Oriental Frill.
