I guess raising homing pigeons is popular. Mike Tison does it. I guess it keeps him from biting peoples ears off.

For a $1.4m US why would you want a Marlow?

I guess it's like anything else, if you have enough money, and you're reallly into what your buying, then it makes sense to you. I've seen people spend thousands on a bottle of grape juice (wine). Thankfully my palate doesn't know the difference above maybe $50 and I have a GPS to find my own way home.

Why not, and certainly before a bird!

Homing pigeon.

The sellers trained the homing pigeon to fly back to them after the sale. Pigeon gets a new name and sells again and again. It's a good scam. The buyer is ashamed to admit they lost the billion dollar bird and the scam goes unreported.

Buy the Marlow. I don't even know what a Marlow is. I'm going to have to google it. It's gotta be better than a scam bird.
