Belgian Pigeonrings


More and more people started keeping pigeons between 1800 and 1810. In those days also the first race had been place.

In ancient times only a landowner had the right to keep pigeons, x pairs of pigeons were allowed per hectare of land. The idea went as follows: in ancient times only landowners had the acquired right to keep pigeons, this was because landowners also sowed food and could feed the pigeons from their surplus. Someone who had no land could not feed his pigeons.
