Not all colombiers have dated stones on them but are fascinating buildings in their own right. A prerogative of seigneurs, they were for keeping pigeons in. Other land owners and farmers would not want them anyway as these birds were pests, decimating nearby crops for food. One might feel sorry for anyone trying to grow corn near Dièlament as the seigneur had one thousand slots in his colombier!
