Laudino Sevillano Pouter

ORIGIN: Spain. First developed in Valencia in the early 1700's from crosses of the Valencian Pouter with the Magana Homer by a Franciscan friar, Antonio Llaud; hence its name Laudino. Later it was further developed in Seville in this century by fanciers there who crossed it with Rafeno Pouters and Gorguero Pouters.
