Hi! I'm from the east in the garden state New Jersey last February 2018 Feb I purchased a small chicken hutch w a run and ordered 4 Tippler pigeons for me and my grand kids I was getting 4 birds 2male 2female what I got was 1male the rest 3females. So with in a month they where brooding and they hatched now I don't use heaters or anything like that I just got a wellbilt coop no drafts dry with straw. So im thinking this is the coldest time of the year and figured they would die from hypothermia these birds where 5 or 6 month old so this might be there first time laying and careing for squabs. Sure enough they did evrything rite and the squabs thrived! And are pairing up and having there first brood but now in the last few weeks I've had three pairs hatched and fledged and are being wiend of the cropmilk to seed and grit I did build a 4' wide 8' deep 8' high with a 5' deep 6' wide 4' high Avery over the summer I lost a few birds from hawks or lost there way I only wanted about 14 bird's but just from summer I went from 15 down to 8 due to predation by other birds or lost in flight I'm not gonna keep them pent up and never let them fly if that's the case I should have gotten hamsters! And how them birds love too fly for hour's its great!!! And the grand kids love it and so do i!!!

During this time of year you should keep them in, as hawks are more problem now. Just not safe to let them out. Most keep them in till winter is over if the hawks are bad.

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass........It's about learning to dance in the rain.
