Demographics of a Pigeon Fancier and Pigeon Works

26 01 2009

Something about researching the demographic about pigeon keepers in the UK.

Mostly useful for this excerpt that helps to nail a character stereotype for pigeon keepers:

“When the age-old sport of pigeon racing is mentioned the image that most easily pops into mind is the pigeon fancier. A fifty-year-old, 5 foot 5, pot bellied, individual, holding a pint of bitter in one hand a pigeon in the other hand, with a flat cap on his head.”
