Someone in Macomb is trying to give away carrier pigeons

I admit I did a double take when I first saw this, but it’s not a mirage, it’s real. Someone in Macomb is trying to give away carrier pigeons. Yes, carrier pigeons.

I found this unique offer on the Western Illinois Craigslist Free Stuff Page. This is a genuine homing pigeon offer and at no cost to you. Here is a photo to prove that I am not making this up.

I know you’re thinking “I’d like to see a better picture of these pigeons”, so there you go. They look like healthy pigeons.

After googling the topic, I now know a lot more about pigeon racing than I knew yesterday. There are an entire Wikipedia page dedicated to trained pigeons that fly a certain distance and return (and are timed). It says:

Pigeon race is the sport of letting go specially trained racing pigeons, who then return home a carefully measured distance. The time it takes the animal to travel the specified distance is measured and the bird’s movement speed is calculated and compared to all other pigeons in the race to determine which animal returned with the highest speed .

Think about it. You can now own a fancier team for the cost of NOTHING. Better contact the person on Craigslist quickly before that birdie offer disappears. Your chance to be a pigeon racing champion may never happen again.
