An Insight to Pet Keeping – Pigeons As a Case Study
What are pets? As the Oxford dictionary explains, “an animal, bird, etc. that you have at home for pleasure and not one that is kept for work or food”. From the above definition, it will be good to say: any animal that sleeps and breeds inside the house can be referred to as a pet.
These animals can be dogs, cats, monkeys, parrots, rodents such as hamsters, rabbits, guinea pigs, etc.; in extreme cases, snakes, eagles, sheds, swallows, crocodiles, etc., which can be referred to as domestic animals.
As you all know, pigeons belong to the family of birds (birds). They can be described as social beings. But one of the stunning things in these beings is their humility and the general slogan for which they are known as “to live and let live” a term that sounds ironic to other animal communities, for me it is the quality that makes them the most unique creatures to ever walk on the surface of the earth and fly over the sky, and as they clap their wings in humility and unison spread peace, prosperity, and love throughout the length and breadth of their dwelling.
Now, a few years ago, or more precisely in 1996, I was hooked on a pigeon, I was still in my early youth at that time, looking now I find that this experience is very nostalgic every time I recall it.
As I said earlier, I found out about these loving bird beings through a friend, though many years older than him, but as a result of what we had in common: being pigeon-lovers, we gathered as friends.
I visited his place regularly to simply study the life pattern of these unique birds and every time I looked at them, they became more and more fascinating and fascinating for me, and my longing for my own community of pigeons grew until I satisfied this desire by purchasing two sets of pigeons; two males and two females respectively, from whom I built a community of pigeons so large that I was jealous of many of us.
On the contrary, I am not writing this article to tell you about my personal experiences as a former owner of these pets, but rather to provide you with a comprehensive document on how these animals live, eat, reproduce and interact with each other and with their owners, but most of my personal experiences with these birds will be told.
The community consists of males and females, every pigeon has a wife, it sounds funny, but it is true, getting married like us people, the more unfaithfulness of any of the partners is unbearable. The common belief among them is one man, one wife, but most men wander occasionally and their purpose, young non-attached women, another common feature in human societies, the difference is that divorce is the last thing to be taken into account in this very complex but organized society; in contrast to this claim, during all my years of raising these birds as pets, I registered a typical case of divorce.

But with this development, these pigeons became a kind of hermit because they were avoided and treated with contempt by other pigeons in the community. Now a male pigeon in this situation decided to do the unthinkable by interacting with the pigeon that was thrown out, and this relationship ended with the hooking of both pigeons.
Unfortunately, a woman escaped from another male, which led to the exile of this soulless pigeon, which led me to make a decision, because everybody in my home, from father to mother, loved and loved these birds. So I drove the pigeon out for the fact that I left the pigeon not only to my husband but also to the children for whom the male pigeon was pigeoning, and the responsibility for it was the pigeon himself who effectively fulfilled his duties towards him.
Now the pigeons are very interesting a lot to explore, their complexity of character and simplicity is one quality hard to find in any other animal society, from birds to reptiles, from amphibians to aquatic creatures, and even mammals and even monkeys, the community that after the male and female pigeons hook up, they begin to create plans for having a family.
They begin to associate like any other animal in the frame, but one unique thing they associate them with is the prolonged foreplay, amazing? Good pigeons are similar to humans in many ways and this is one of them. They kiss with a male putting his head between the wings from time to time, after this prolonged female fold down into a normal kick.
