This bizarre pigeon looks like something from a Pixar film directed by Salvador Dalí (video)

I might dislike the feral pigeons (aka flying rats) a bit less if they looked like English Pouters. Seen below, English Pouters are a kind of domesticated "fancy pigeons" that have been selectively bred to look this bizarre.

In Charles Darwin's 1868 book The Variation of Animals and Plants Under Domestication, he referred to these bizarre birds as "the most distinct of all domesticated pigeons."
