The Danish Tumbler is bred in Denmark for about 400
years. The first birds were brought by sailors from the former colonies in Asia
to the north of Europe. From this material the Danish fanciers formed an
elegant, but not extreme show tumbler with outstanding colors, white pearl eyes,
surrounded in most colorations by an intense red eye cere. The beak in most
colors is pink. Exceptions are black and blue tigers, Kites and Branders with
dark to black beaks and usually dark eye ceres. The English Magpie and the
German Long Beaked Tumblers are of the same origin. The best Danish type is
shown in magpies, selfs in black, red, yellow and white.
