Since Bangladesh is the land of enough crop fields, so local pigeons are available in all places. In villages, most houses would be focused with free-ranged local pigeons. These pigeons need not extra care or food. They easily nourished by leftover foods and less care by the owners. Squab meat is delicious and excellent for human health especially increasing blood components within the human body. Some selected pigeon markets of the north-south and central regions of Bangladesh (Plate 1) found moderate number of squab of pigeons. Due to less care, most squabs were found diseased especially pox and malnutrition. Due to physicians’ prescription, patients prefer squabs within 300-500 g weight with 250-300 taka per pair.
