While most everyone has heard of the Racing Homer, several other varieties of the

Giant Homer

One of just a few truly "American" breeds, the American Giant Homer was first recognized as a distinct breed by the NPA (National Pigeon Association) at the 1928 Grand National Show. The breed is the result of an attempt by early breeders of squabbing homers to improve their breed both commercially and aesthetically.     Link to other site featuring the Giant Homer  

This breed has a resemblance to the American Show Racer, with the same rounded head and beak shape, but this is a more elongated breed. Pigeon fanciers have had a lot of fun making many variations on the Racing Homer. Other types include the German and Dutch Beauty Homers and the Exhibition Homer, which has a unique triangular-shaped head.
