Many people don't realize what an active sport Pigeon racing is. Mike Tyson is a huge pigeon racer. Pigeons are easy to keep because they require very little room. They are relatively quiet animals so people are usually able to keep them in small backyards in neighborhoods without any problems. In order to race birds, young pigeons ( squabs) have to be obtained and raised in the person's coop. This is where they will return to when they are released. If you bought an older pigeon and it got out of the coop it would fly back to the person you bought it from. Like racehorses, pigeons can vary in their prices. Some can go up into the thousands! They can also fly hundreds of miles to get home.
