Old English Tumbler come in a variety of colors, including black, yellow, red, muffed, and saddle-marked.

As is typical of tumbler pigeons, they are said to be quite acrobatic as they execute backward somersaults in flight or on the ground. Old English Tumbler are smaller-sized pigeons generally weigh between 6 – 7 oz (170 – 198 grams).
