Fancy Pigeons to Make You Think Twice About the World's Most Hated Bird

Themed Collections

27 November 2017

Posted by Charlotte Dart

Unaffectionately dubbed the “rats of the sky”, there’s few birds less popular than the common pigeon. Pigeons have lived alongside for humans for thousands of years and while some breeds of pigeons were once regarded as the bringers of miracles, today they’re rather less well-regarded.

Pigeons are famed for their robustness and incredible homing skills, making them invaluable during the first and second world wars where they were trained to carry important messages across enemy lines. Specially bred racing pigeons are still popular today, where the best birds can reach speeds of up to 110 miles per hour! Take a look at a selection of the fanciest, prettiest pigeons to see if we can change your mind about this famous fowl.
