The Holle Cropper ( also known as the Amsterdam Balloon Cropper) is a breed of fancy pigeon developed over many years of selective breeding.[1] Holle Croppers, along with other varieties of domesticated pigeons are all descendants from the Rock Pigeon (Columba livia). This breed was developed in Holland.[2]
