Sindy’s Pigeon Service is a place for pigeon-lovers to explore and buy creative products for pigeons and their people. Every item is one that I have personally used in the now ELEVEN aviaries I have designed and had built, and each item has met with pigeon success. The items are mostly ones created by my husband, Steve, and me, and handcrafted by us, for use either in an indoor cage for pigeons or an outdoor aviary. The remainder (such as fake eggs, seed covers, etc.) were selected because either we found them tremendously useful to us as pigeon people or because the pigeons adored them.
While an on-line store, Sindy’s Pigeon Service also offers an opportunity to meet the pigeons for school groups, homeschoolers or anyone else, interested in learning kindness and respect for all creatures as well as the remarkable contributions of pigeons through the centuries. Sindy’s Pigeon Service is acutely aware of the misuse of pigeons and the social attitude of disgust and malignment toward them. This store and its educational services are created with the hope that it will support and encourage all people who love animals to view pigeons (domesticated and feral) as the gentle, highly-intelligent and loving beings they are and admire their centuries-long history as one of man’s best helpers.
Sindy’s Pigeon Service is so named to honor the pigeons who were used in both world wars by the U.S. military to send messages to the soldiers on the ground and to the resistance in occupied Europe and Southeast Asia. The military called its winged messengers, the “U.S. Pigeon Service.” At its peak in World War II, the U.S. Pigeon Service possessed 54,000 pigeons.
