Baby Pigeons at My Farm

We have babies here at my Bedford, New York farm.

That's right, my flock of fancy pigeons is growing - there are about four baby pigeons now with more eggs waiting to hatch. I keep a small group of these beautiful birds - Homers, Tipplers, Tumblers, Owl pigeons, as well as one of the oldest breeds, the Syrian Damascene. They live in a pen adjacent to my peafowl yard and across from my stable. Pigeons have been domesticated for thousands of years and have been kept by people worldwide for their companionship, their sport, and their loyal service. Caring for these birds is a nice way to pay tribute to these fascinating and intelligent creatures.
