(3 Mar 2017) LEADIN:Pigeon breeding has become such big business in Amman that some birds sell for as much as 1000 Jordanian dinars (1500 US Dollars).Enthusiasts come to Amman from surrounding countries to buy pigeons and learn how to keep them.STORYLINE:Just before dusk in the east of the Jordan capital Amman, flocks of pigeons soar through the sky.It's a common sight since pigeon keeping is a popular hobby here and has been for generations.Pigeon breeder Usama Alkhaliela explains how they are intelligent creatures who respond to his commands:"For example, I say come so the pigeons come down and eat when they hear this word. When on the ramp I spread grain for them and say 'come', so the pigeons come and eat."Not only does Alkhaliela keep pigeons, he breeds them too:"My father used to breed pigeons. My uncles used to breed pigeons, so for me it's family heritage and I love pigeons so much", he says.Pigeon breeding is such big business in the capital that it's become tradition to hold an auction in downtown Amman every Thursday, where prices may reach up to 1000 Jordanian dinars.Pigeon breeder Ali Alqaisi explains that pigeon breeding began at the start of the 20th century and was popular among high class, rich people.However when economic circumstances became more harsh some people turned to it as a useful source of income.He claims breeders became so experienced in the wellbeing of pigeons they were as expert in the birds as vets:"Some breeders have more experience than doctors (vets) because diagnosis is the most important thing in treatment, medicine is available", he says.Now he claims Amman is so respected for pigeon breeding that people come from surrounding countries like Lebanon and Syria to buy the birds and learn more about how to keep them.You can license this story through AP Archive: http://www.aparchive.com/metadata/you...
