Did you know: where does the expression "get pigeon" come from?

Le Pigeonnier, or in English the Dovecote.

Until 1789 only the nobility were allowed to own a dovecote. Pigeons were widely consumed but they were also productive animals. They produced guano (their droppings) which was the only fertiliser then available for the land.

At that time the size of a the Pigeonnier indicated the wealth of the family. Some cheated by having fake niches. The term "get pigeon" comes from there. 

From 1789 onwards anybody could have a dovecote, and pigeons. the term dovecote is then used and we see small dovecotes appear on the roofs of many buildings.
