The International Federation of American Pigeon Fanciers, Inc. (I.F.)
welcomes you to the fascinating hobby of breeding and racing pigeons.
This brochure was prepared to help novices get started in a wonderful
pass time that has provided countless hours of pleasure to hundreds of
thousands of people around the world.
Virtually anyone can enjoy this hobby and sport.
Pigeon fanciers represent all age groups and all lifestyles. The hobby
is affordable for people in all income brackets. Raising and racing homing
pigeons is an ideal activity for the entire family, especially children
who learn responsibility, life sciences and time management from caring
for their pigeons.
Men as well as women enjoy the pleasures of raising and training these
feathered athletes. The sport is also ideally suited for retirees who
have time on their hands and are seeking satisfying activities as well
as new avenues to make additional friends and relationships.
Homing pigeons are hardy and easy to raise in addition to being highly
intelligent. They adapt well to almost any climate or geographic location.
Because of their strong homing instinct, they can be released to fly around
their home and be trained to return from 600 miles or more. Watching a
flock of well-trained birds circle around the yard or return from a journey
of several hundred miles provides satisfaction and excitement that is
unequaled by few hobbies.
Pigeon racing is an international sport. Although Belgium, the Netherlands,
the United Kingdom, and Taiwan are hotbeds of racing pigeon fanciers,
homing pigeon fanciers can be found in virtually every country.
Pigeon racing in the United States is healthy and growing as well. American
racing pigeon fanciers are some of the most enthusiastic in the world
and are always ready
to help new people join their ranks.
