Homing pigeons are used to carry messages over large distances, favoured by spies and other shadowy types. A homing pigeon, although similar to ordinary pigeons, is more muscular and can fly much longer distances than other pigeons.[1a]

These animals have a nearly unerring ability to find their way back to their home roost. Homing pigeons that are released have an 80% chance of returning back to their homes safely, along with any message they might be carrying.[1a]

Recently pigeons have become popular to carry more than just messages: pigeon bombs are one of the more recent inventions of the Empire's engineers.[2a]
