Pigeons are often considered the rats of the sky but racing pigeons are far from it. Bred to fly for hours at high speed and to travel for hundreds of kilometres, racing pigeons look like beautiful and noble birds. Their breeders take care of their birds as they were precious pets also because some of them reach the value of several thousands of euros. When portrait the racing pigeons don’t look like regular street pigeon, they show their character almost like if they were humans.
