    I am very interested in getting a baby pigeon to keep as an indoor pet. I had one as a child and would like one again. Does anyone on here breed them and be willing to ship? I like king pigeons because of their size but I also like the fancy ones. Let me know what you have.

    I'd recommend you getting a ring neck dove as they make good indoor pets, are smaller than rock doves (pigeons) and they do live a LONG time.
    We have one now and he is going strong at 17 years young.
    If you absolutely must get a pigeon, look for a parlor roller .
    Parlor rollers cannot fly but react to loud noises by spinning or rolling on the parlor floor thus their name
    A homer or other normally flighted bird would be unhappy being kept inside, not so the doves or parlor rollers.
