AGSG birds needing home, are welcome, in Ohio


Howdy. I have been reading on these turned loose birds and feel that I have to do my part, so, if any are located within driving distance of my home which is fifty miles east of Cincinnati (in Hillsboro), I will take them in "forever home" status. I have ten acres and a dozen racing pigeons, and can build a loft in a weekend, when needed.

I am NOT a dog trainer nor a hunter. Well, that isn't actually true. I do train dogs, but only to sit and roll over

Here is one of my two lofts. The other has my prisoner homers in it, and is not pictured. If anyone wants my phone number or email address, just ask via a private message. I do not want to ship birds if possible. My birds are well taken care of, and always will be, unless I die, and I will try my best to not die anytime soon

That's very kind and generous of you. Not many are being found now, but once in a while someone comes across one. I think for the most part, they're 1. dead now, 2. have learned to survive somewhere or 3..I expect that a FEW have been found by people who just decided to keep them cause they're such neat birds.

PS: That's a CUTE loft............

Thanks. Yea, it's "cute", but I am not much of a handy man. I got the plans from this site and just did what it said. Although I did make some minor changes. It was fun and worked out nicely. My other loft, where I keep my prisoners (I don't have a pic right now), is a shed attached to dog kennel fencing. They have a lot of room to fly around in it. The floor is concrete.

Here is where I got the plans for my loft in the pic. I am going to put another beside this one, on the other side of the flag. I call my loft "Marine One Lofts" because of my background in the Marine Corps.

It's a shame about the birds that were let out to fend on their own. They do not look like birds that would fair well in the wild. It's hard enough for the racers in the wild, let alone those that don't fly as well and as fast.

Thank you, conditionfreak! We greatly appreciate your offer. If a banded bird turns up in your area (AGSG or otherwise) that needs a place, you are definitely on the list!

You have made a very generous offer to take in some of the AGSG birds.

I really like your loft. I'm especially intrigued with the, for lack of a better description - the "carrying handles" you made from what looks like 2 x 4's. If that is what they are on either side of the loft, that is very ingenious - you can set the loft anyplace in your yard.

Yep. Those handles slide in and out and allow four people to carry the loft. As per the original plans which I linked above, this is one thing I changed. The original plans stated that the loft will fitt in the back of a pick up truck and I decided to make it easier to carry in case I ever do have to move it.

I originally built the loft on a two wheeled trailer I use for farm stuff (about 5' x 8') and intended to leave it on the trailer and move it to cut grass or whatever. But, because of a few things that popped up, I decided to make it stationary instead of mobile. One of the problems being the the tongue of the trailer bent with the weight of the loft and ME in the loft, towards the front. I guess I better go on a diet . The tongue was old iron anyway though. So I made the tongue shorter (it was very long) and that solved that problem, but I still decided to make the loft stationary, with the handles allowing 2" x 4"s to be able to slide inside the handles and lift the whole thing. Also, I use the trailer for other stuff.

In case you didn't notice, I have two pieces of rubber matting on the floor. Each four by six, although the floor is only 4 x 8. That way, I simply scrap the perches, and then pull the mats out and spray them off with a power washer. It is so much better than scraping the floor.
