WHAT IS A PIGEON?

Pigeon is the common name for members of the Columbidae family of birds. Smaller species are commonly known as doves. Hundreds, if not thousands of breeds have been developed by man for many purposes: large pigeons for the table, many types of fancy pigeons for competitive showing, homers for racing and messaging, and rollers and tipplers for their aerial acrobatics.


Pigeons and doves have been around for a long timeŚlong before humans. Rock Doves are thought to have originated in southern Asia several million years ago. Compare this to modern humans that first appeared about 120,000 years ago.

Like many creatures in the world, the common pigeon is not native to many of the places where it thrives. In many large urban areas, common pigeons are some of the only "wildlife" that some people will ever see.

Naturally, pigeons eat only seeds and grains. Wild pigeons may also eat bread, popped corn, and bits of food dropped by people. Pigeons do not eat worms, insects, or meat. The best food for pigeons is a mixture of quality grains.

The hen lays the first egg of a two-egg clutch about 10 days after mating. The second egg follows a day or so after the first. The couple usually do not start sitting on the eggs until the second egg comes. This ensures both eggs hatch around the same time.
