I am trying my best to to give you short and correct information.

We start common pet birds and as you know pet birds have many breeds I will show you mostly common but good and healthy birds details.

Simply I divided common pet birds (Chickens, Pigeons, Quails, Francolins and  Partridges) in three groups 

1) Competition Birds (Chickens, Pigeons, Partridges (CHUKAR), Francolins (TEETAR))
2) Fancy Birds (Chickens, Pigeons)
3) Utility Birds (Chickens, Pigeons, Partridges (CHUKAR), Francolins (TEETAR))

Bird are the beautiful and loving that are available in different types, sizes and colors
each color are unique. keeping birds is an art and science

How can art.
                      Take information from internet but design birds coops (house) as per your money budget

a2) Fancy pigeon

Fancy pigeons are specially breed as per his perpetuate particular features.
For Examples
Jacobins,  Fantails and Pigmy Pouters. Owners compete them against each other at exhibitions or pigeon shows and judges decide who has the best by comparing
them to each other and their respective breed standard. There are many breeds of fancy pigeons all sizes, colors and types

Famous fanciers
Queen Elizabeth II also enjoys the sport of pigeon racing.

The Royal Pigeon Racing Association is the premier organisation that represents the sport of pigeon racing in England, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, the Channel
Islands and Gibraltar. The sport has been linked to Royalty since the early part of the last century and Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, our patron,
maintains Royal Lofts at Sandringham.


Pigeons are grain eaters. Most feed stores stock an adequate mix for them. Depending upon the time of year and whether breeding youngsters or not, the birds usually get a mix which ranges between 12% and 17% protein. Protein percentages higher than that for long periods of time often lead to gout or other problems for the birds. Pigeons also need a mineral grit mixture (chicken grit is not suitable for pigeons). This grit mixture, too, can be purchased at most feed stores. Pigeons also need clean water daily. All three items are usually fed separately. Pigeons appreciate green food: romaine lettuce, etc., but this is not necessary and millions of birds have been reared without it. It is essential that every effort is made to keep the water, feed and grit clean with no contamination allowed. If this is done, pigeons are extremely hardy animals. If not, the breeder is leaving his stock open to various bacteriological and parasitic infections. But then, this is just common sense. Unless you're a dung beetle larva, the idea of fecal pellets for breakfast is not particularly appealing.

The most important requirement as to pigeon housing is that the interior always be kept dry. Dampness brings disease. Pigeons are not ducks. Accommodations for pigeons range from luxurious racing lofts which costs upwards of a half million dollars to converted tool sheds. So long as feed is kept clean and the interior dry, each houses the birds just fine. The Levi books available from Pigeon supply companies, show many ideas for loft construction.

Breeding & Incubation

The domestic pigeon normally reaches sexual maturity at about five to six months of age. Depending on the local temperatures and food supply, they may breed all year round. Many fanciers, however, prevent them from breeding continuously -- either by separating the sexes, or by letting mated pairs sit on wooden (dummy) eggs.

Once mated, the male (cock) will begin to hunt for a suitable place to make a nest and rear young. Domestic pigeons do not nest in trees as do many other doves. They are descendants of a cliff dwelling species and prefer their nest to be on a solid surface. Most fanciers (breeders) also provide a nest bowl and some nesting materials (pine needles, tobacco stems, etc.) for the birds to use. The nest bowl helps to ensure that the eggs do not roll out from under the pair and chill.

Both male and female take part in the incubation and rearing of the young. Females lay their first egg about 10 days after mating, usually in the late afternoon or early evening. A second egg is laid about 44 hours later. Two eggs is the normal clutch size. Incubation commences with the laying of the second egg. The male (cock) bird usually broods from about 10 a.m. until 5 p.m., the female (hen) the rest of the time. Hatching normally occurs 18 days from start of incubation. Youngsters are fed by both parents -- and here is where pigeons/doves are unique. The parents need not even leave the nest to hunt down insects, etc., as do many other genera or species. Instead, they feed their young on a glandular crop secretion called "pigeon milk". It is not actually milk, and there is no lactose in it, but its production is stimulated by prolactin, the same hormone which stimulates milk production in mammals. Pigeon milk looks more like a cream-colored cottage cheese and is a high protein food which is fed to the youngsters from hatching till about ten days old when regurgitated grain and grit replace it as the major food source. Domestic pigeons usually have a seamless aluminum identity band placed on their leg at about ten days of age. This band is coded with year of hatch, club identification and a number. Youngsters fledge at about 35 days. However, when the young are about eighteen days old, the parents will often commence to renest. It is not uncommon for one round of youngsters to be fledging at the same time that next are hatching.


Most breeds of pigeon have their own specialty club which promulgates a show or sporting standard of perfection. Breeders strive to raise birds to this standard. There are also groups for sporting breeds such as the Tippler (a pigeon known for endurance flying -- world record is in excess of twenty-three hours), the Birmingham Roller (an acrobatic flyer which performs rapid backward somersaults), and the Racing Homer (a bird which can return rapidly from distances in excess of five hundred miles [700 kilometers]). The major U.S. racing organizations are the 
American Racing Pigeon Union (A.U.) 
and the 
International Federation of Homing Pigeon Fanciers (I.F.);

in Canada, the Canadian Racing Pigeon Union is the group to contact. 

In the United States, many show/fancy pigeon groups are affiliated with National Pigeon Asso.
