Pigeons of Bosnia and Herzegovina
With the arrival of the Ottomans to the territories of todayís Bosnia and Herzegovina new pigeon breeds were introduced. So it is not a coincidence that pigeon keeping in Bosnia and Herzegovina has always been popular.
Pigeons in Bosnia and Herzegovina were never kept by the wealthy; they were always ornaments of village, and especially suburban house roofs. Pigeon keeping was spread as an eastern tradition, which values the pigeonís looks and its flight. For that reason our pigeon breeds are mostly rollers that also look good.
Pigeon keeping in Bosnia and Herzegovina has a long tradition with an ever increasing number of pigeon hobbyists.
