    Do you want flying/performing breeds, fancy breeds, utility breeds, or ones that make the best pets?

    King pigeons make very nice pets and oftentimes, there are lots of them needing homes. After the pyramid scam a couple of years ago with kings, many were rescued and taken to shelters. You should start searching there and if you're in the USA.

    if your interested in kings, i would suggest Micacoo! http://www.rescuereport.org/
    also, i just love Irranian Highflyers! a bit hard to come by sometimes tho. heres my 10 month old pretty boy Dale (winner of the pigeon show in this section!) he is quite tame.
