I think pigeons are an underrated and beautiful bird. I love seeing them in the wild...AHEM...city. I would love to own some, but I'm not sure why. What's their purpose? What do you DO with them? I know with chickens, they are fun to raise from chicks, breed, trade, and you can eat them and their eggs. So, what do pigeons contribute? Anything you say can and may be used to persuade my husband into getting pigeons.
