Pigeon Racing

People have been racing pigeons almost since the beginning of time. Historic records show there were pigeon races in 220 AD.

Pigeons are intelligent birds, despite what you may think from your city experiences.  This site will share tons of data and tales about pigeons and pigeon racing and hopefully will become an excellent resource for people in search of good information about pigeons, racers and doves.  There are many different breeds of pigeons.

There are also national and international organizations which govern the entire process of pigeon racing. You might expect that when you think about how long these birds have been racing.

They have a solid history as messenger birds that precedes the telegraph, the telephone, the pony express and all sorts of technological means of communication.
