Pigeon raising, one of the oldest hobbies known to man is becoming more and more popular.  Even people with limited space are finding great satisfaction in raising, training and breeding one or more varieties of pigeons. This basic handbook removes the mystery form the hobby and explains everything that beginner needs to know.  Both popular and little know breeds are shown for the first time in full and true pictures. The concise text leads the beginner through all the steps - from selecting birds, to housing, feeding, breeding and keeping them healthy.  

A special section devoted to raising and training Racing Homers clearly tells how to prepare the birds for the race.
