    I just built some new box perches yesterday for my young bird section. I used 1 x 3 strapping from HD. The material cost was less than $20, and it took me less than 3 hours to build. Let's hope the YBs like them.:) http://www.pigeons.biz/forums/album.php?albumid=2171&pictureid=25064

    I'm going to change my perches in my young bird loft to box perches and was unsure what the dimensions should be.
