Another purpose for domestication of ‘pigeons’


Pigeons have been domesticated since ancient times to carry messages. They used to travel several miles to deliver messages. Even today, pigeon posts exist that serve the military in many countries. Pigeons have also been domesticated for a sport called ‘pigeon racing’. The racing is timed, and it has been found that the competing pigeons can fly up to 1,750 km a day.
