A lot of people probably have a distaste for eating rats or mice. But I imagine if they were farmed, they could be quite tasty. When I was young, lived on a farm, plagued by pigeons. Outside there was a round wire corn silo we'd put full ears of corn in. The pigeons were on that silo, day in and day out. I popped four of em one day with my .22, cleaned em, mom cooked them, they were incredible! Not much wing, but breasts like a turkey. Fine delicacy in some parts of the world.

(When in doubt, give em' both barrels.... then git in there quick with yer Bowie!)
Pigeons are pretty common game. I used to hunt wild pigeon with an air-rifle. Good eating.
