The pigeon pageant show took place in the city of Hami in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region on Dec 14. A total of 55 pigeons selected by Xinjiang pigeon associations participated in the event.


The aim of the competition is to capture the beauty of life and call on more people to care for birds. A panel of judges examined the pigeons’ heads, necks, wings and muscles carefully and chose the best one to be the winner.
