People have been breeding domestic pigeons since time immemorial. It is difficult to say where they first began to tame these smart birds since the habitats of wild pigeons are very extensive.
Pigeons are bred for various purposes: for training, participating in sports competitions and exhibitions, certain breeds are grown for the sale of delicious pigeon meat, rich in a complex of vitamins and minerals.
