    Re: What is it called ?

    Pigeon keeping.

    Pigeon keepers, racers and breeders are often called pigeon fanciers.

    A better title would have been Taking care of pigeons.

    Taking care of pigeons

    Taking care of pigeons
    Taking care of birds
    Taking care of animals
    ...,etc.


    May be this is the term and I was in doubt if
    there is another term for this kind of hobbies.

    OK
    It depends on the animal. If you keep bees, you are an apiarist and the hobby is apiary. If you keep dogs and breed them to get sellable puppies, you are a dog breeder and the hobby is dog breeding. If you study or collect butterflies or moths, you're a lepidopterist and the hobby is lepidoptery.
