  • Pigeons occur worldwide except in the coldest regions and the most remote islands. About 250 species are known
  • Carriers, along with other varieties of domesticated pigeons, are all descendants of the rock pigeon
  • The Carrier is typically about 17.5–18.5 inches (44–47 cm) in height, with a long, slender body.  It weighs up to 400 g (14,11 Oz)
  • Throughout history, the Carrier Pigeon has been used as a messenger, and can carry messages on light paper or similar over long distances in a special container that is either attached to the Pigeons leg or carried in a harness as a small “backpack”.
  • They possess a group of neurons that are used to help the birds process changes in the direction, intensity, and polarity of magnetic fields around them. The sensitivity of the pigeons to these physical properties allows them to determine their directional heading and altitude by using the Earths magnetic field.
  • All pigeons walk with a characteristic bobbing of the head. Because of their long wings and powerful flight muscles, they are strong, swift fliers
  • Carriers are fed a compound feed consisting of corn, cereals, and legumes.
