    I'm sorry about the lack of proper punctuation, I had to sacrifice it to post the idea.

    That's fine, I understand. 

    Carrier pigeons sound great! What fun I would have with it and my lazy little minecraft legs with approve! LOL

    I think instead of writing the name of a player on bread the player should instead be able to make bird houses, and be able to send it to a specific bird house. idk just an idea lol

    maybe they should spawn as normal pidgeons, then could be tamed and turned into one.

    It wouldn't let me make my own post about this, but I raise pigeons IRL! And have some ideas, so here is what my post was going to be:

    I was playing some Minecraft and I showed my dad our epic little town and he said "where's the pigeon loft?" Adding homing/messenger/wild pigeons would be an interesting and cool addition I think. We "tame" pigeons in the real life, I think some real life characteristics of them could be added. They could eat seeds/food/mob drops off the ground, you could train them to always return home (they do this in real life!), you could add a sort of scroll item so you could send messages to other players (or just do it with the pre-existing book and quill), you can breed them into different color patterns, they capture other pigeons into their flock, if you also add hawks that could be a predator like the untamed wolves are to sheep (hawks also eat chickens), and they could serve as another source of getting feathers! There are other characteristics that could be added: pigeons always lay 2 eggs (a male and female), they naturally drop their feathers, that's all I can think of right now. Adding pigeons would be awesome, and you could eat them!
