What do any of you think is the best size for nesting boxes and should all be set up as dubles? I going to start building and need input from you pros. The loft will hwve two section one for homers and the other for Kings. I thinking differant sizes.

I think that 24"Long x 14"deep x 12"high is a great start if you have the room myself

Thanks I start working on the nesting Boxes.... I think for the kings I'll make then a little bigger 16 x 16 x 24 makes easy plywood cutting. If I make all the nest that size it it to big for homers?

Thanks, Renee to you and your husband. The plans are very helpful. I modified mine to widowhood front and used dowel hinges. This is my first sample template.

Thanks

The other day I found this site on Youtube. Its from a fancier in NC and he breeds many varieties of fancy pigeons. I raise racing pigeons but I thought his nesting boxes were neat. He uses an old milk crate or a wooden shelf that he takes a box, cuts a hole so the pigeons can get in and out of and then puts in a nestbowl. When the pair is done raising their babies he tosses out the cardboard box! Not sure if this will work for you but it is a good idea, check it out.
