My Pigeons - Violet

Updated on July 7, 2008

Violet is only 5 months old but is the most precious bird in the world, to me.

She has not yet had a race but is starting to training. These photos are for her racing profile for when she starts.

Many people tell me that I should put her into a beauty contest, and yes I think about it. I just don't do those kinda contests. The people make me sick and are very rude.

She was born on 3/7/08. I didn't breed her one of my friends gave her to me. For only 65 dollars. She was about a month and a half old when I took her home with me. Violet is not yet aquainted with the other pigeons. Spends about an hour a day with the other racing pigeons (only girls in the pen for it is mating season). Every 2 weeks she stays longer in the pen that way she'll be able to train with them and I won't have to do a private lesson.

If Violet keeps this love up, she'll probably stay in with me all her life!

      Violet is simply beautiful! My uncle used to raise pigeons when he was in high school - he had lots of them, all different colors and types. Do you have any fantail pigeons? Are you really going to let her race? I would be so afraid something would happen to her! I lost my pet Cockatiel "Breeze" once, when his cage came apart outside, he flew away and would not come back. He was attacked by a flock of crows, even though I called and called him to "Come" for almost 2 days, he would not come down from the tree where he was... (People walking by probably thought I was NUTS, calling out "Come here! Come here!" to a big tree...)

      Anywayz, Violet is very beautiful, thanks for sharing her. I have never seen a pigeon her color before, what kind of pigeon is she, exactly?

      Is that violet color natural? I used to have pigeon but a civet cat mauled it. She didn't die but had bothe of her legs broken. She lived for another month and just faded away... Thumbs up!!!

      Wow! that is a pretty pigeon. Why don't the ones in the city look that nice. I never heard of racing pigeons that sounds like fun but, I assume they just go straight and are probably hard to watch.

      I think it's so cool that you raise pidgeons. I don't know what you mean when you say racing pidgeons. Where do they race? From point A to point B? Who are the people you race against? Are there judges? Prize money? I know about homing it like that? You should write a hub about. I am interested to learn.

      Thanks for a fun topic!
